Parallelization in automated stem cell culture
Stem cells play a dominant role in biological research and have a significant potential, as test systems for drug screening, disease modeling and therapeutic applications. The automated production of different stem cell types such as iPS and MSC has been realized in recent years by a few research groups. Yet, it requires different approaches in parallelization compared to conventional automated production because of the nature of the living cells on the one hand, and the production system with various interconnected devices on the other hand. Within this work, we present an approach for parallel processing on an automated cell culture platform.
