Automated cell culture for high quality cells and assay-ready plates, suitable for smaller, medium throughput laboratories

Multiple cell line maintenance and assay-ready plate production - CompacT SelecT

CompacT SelecT™ is the leading automated cell culture system, used in labs across commercial and academic life science. It is now available with new options to enable the culturing of complex cell lines for oncology programmes, stem cell research and toxicity studies.

CompacT SelecT grows cells from multiple cell lines in T-flasks for cell line maintenance and expansion. It can generate assay-ready plates on demand for cell-based screening and assay development.

Over 40 systems are in use in laboratories across the world - including many for automated stem cell culture and related research applications.

CompacT SelecT poster

Maintaining multiple cell lines in a busy cell culture facility can lead to long working hours, variability in the quality of cells produced, a lack of consistency in experimental performance, and an increased risk of contamination events.

This poster discusses the implementation of cell culture automation and evaluates the impact on quality and productivity of cell culture operations.
