Application Note: Automated Monitoring of Metabolic Activity and Differentiation of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells
23 February 2017

This application note describes a method for studying the phenotypic changes that occur during mesenchymal stem cell differentiation. Learn how Tecan’s Spark multimode microplate reader platform can be used for automated, real-time analysis of several well-established and reliable cell-based assays developed by PromoCell. The system is suitable for the assessment and quantification of cell viability, cytotoxicity and apoptosis. In this study, the Spark multimode reader is shown to be convenient, reliable and to provide a good basis for the automated multiparameter measurement of cell characteristics.
