Automating Cell-based Assays from Culture to Analysis

A look at where and how automation can help improve data accuracy and reproducibility

BioTek-A part of Agilent RGB Color (1)



Researchers use cultured cells in assays that investigate cellular mechanisms and functions. Scientists can overestimate just how controlled their culture environments are, leading to unseen shifts in cellular phenotype and function that affect data integrity and reproducibility. Moreover, variability in liquid handling and analysis techniques further affects assay integrity. To limit variability, scientists can automate different stages of their cell-based workflows, including culture, assays, and analysis.
