Automated cell culture system assures consistent cell quality.

Viable cell analysis is a crucial part of the cell culture process and cell line quality control.

The Automation Partnership (Cambridge, U.K.) says it has made that process even more accurate and reliable.

The company says its system for automated culturing of cell lines in T-flasks is now available with an integrated Beckman Coulter Vi-CELL XR Cell Viability Analyzer, making controlling consistent cell growth easier and more convenient.

The new option on the CompacT SelecT features a fully integrated Vi-CELL XR Cell Viability Analyzer to automate on-line measurement of viable cell number. The system uses sterile disposable serological pipettes to transfer cell suspensions to the Vi-CELL XR, thus maintaining aseptic processing conditions throughout.

This means cell culture processes can be performed at any time of the day or night, without researchers having to come into the laboratory or worry about potential contamination. Therefore, scientists can consistently maintain cell lines in their optimum state, without the constraints associated with manual cell culture.

Integration of Vi-CELL XR is the most recent addition to the capability of TAP's automated cell culture systems and reinforces the systems' flexibility in supporting a wide range of applications from basic research in cell biology, drug discovery programs, or manufacture of cell therapies.
