5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Cell Culture Robot (CCR) passages seed train cultures in an automated method.  This robotic workcell integrates incubators, media dispensing, labware feeder, and cell counters to drive the throughput of 2 cultures in parallel in less than 5 minutes.  Researchers may bring cell culture to the CCR and in this semi-automated workflow; 24 cultures are passaged in less than 75 minutes and operate remotely.  The CCR workcell is low-risk and increases our seed train capacity without manual intervention.
