Pharmacological Responses in Cultured Human iPSC-Derived Cortical Neurons Using Multi-Electrode Array
(1) Department of Electronics and Intelligent Systems, Tohoku Institute of Technology, Sendai, Miyagi, Japan; (2) Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Tokyo, Japan; (3) Axol Bioscience Ltd., Ca

The functional network of human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived neurons is a potentially powerful in vitro model for evaluating disease mechanisms and drug responses. However, the culture time required for the full functional maturation of individual neurons and networks is uncertain. We investigated the development of spontaneous electrophysiological activity and pharmacological responses for over 1 year in culture using multi-electrode arrays (MEAs).

CellTiter-Glo® 2.0: A Novel Luminescent Cell Viability Assay with Greatly Enhanced Storage Stability
Promega Corporation

Here we report on the attributes of a novel ATP detection reagent for cell viability with all of the assay performance of the previous CellTiter-Glo® Reagent, but now with markedly enhanced stability as a single component in a liquid format. These new features provide for much greater ease-of-use in that storage of the reagent at 4°C eliminates the requirement for reagent thawing and minimizes temperature equilibration time.

Cells cultured in 3D model systems often acquire relatively large in vivo-like structures compared to the thickness of a 2D monolayer of cells grown on standard plastic plates.
Testing a Novel Real Time Cell Viability Assay
Promega Corporation

Recently developed assay technologies make it possible to use multi-well plate readers to measure the number of live or dead cells in culture in real time over a period of days. Live cells are measured in real time by adding a reagent containing a shrimp-derived luciferase and a pro-substrate directly to the culture medium. Only viable cells can convert the pro-substrate into a luciferase substrate and generate light.

Application Notes
Multipette®/ Repeater® M4 Allows for Fast, Precise and Sterile Liquid Transfer in Cell Culture
Eppendorf AG

This application note demonstrates the huge advantages offered by Multipette M4 in terms of accuracy and precision needed for many cell culture applications.
Aseptic Identification of Polysorbates using Handheld Raman
Rigaku Raman Technologies

As polysorbates are reactive to light and air, packaging is usually in thick, dark, amber bottles. This makes the identification process more difficult, as opening the container could compromise the sterility and quality of these materials. Handheld Raman is capable of identifying these materials without any sampling or preparation.

Performing ADCC Reporter Bioassay with an Environmentally Controlled Microplate Reader
Tecan Group Ltd.

The Promega ADCC Reporter Bioassay provides effector and target cells in frozen, thaw-and-use format, removing the need for isolating or culturing cells in order to perform the assay. Reporter induction requires a six-hour to overnight incubation in a standard cell culture incubator. The CO2 and temperature control features of the Tecan Infinite® 200 PRO with GCM allow the assay induction to be performed without the requirement for a cell culture incubator.
3D Cell Culture: mimicking real tissue
Tecan Group Ltd.

Technological advances in the last couple of years have enabled 3D scaffolds to be engineered that offer a real proxy for the in vivo environment which can be easily and routinely used in a cell culture laboratory. Alvetex Scaffold enables cells to develop natural, in vivo-like intercellular interactions, providing an ideal environment for real three-dimensional growth and nutrient exchange that is comparable to intra-capillary exchange in living tissues.
3D cell culture: a realistic and reproducible collagen-based environment
Tecan Group

Researchers are increasingly turning to 3D cell culture techniques, due to the improved physiological relevance of the cellular environment. 3D cell cultures offer a more in vivo-like response to stimuli more closely resembling the behavior of animal models or the human body.
Optimized cell culture
Tecan Group Ltd.

Culturing of various stable cell lines, including bacterial, yeast, hybridoma, insect and mammalian lines, and stem cells, is an important task in the pharmaceutical industry. The cells need to be maintained and expanded for use in cell-based assays, such as siRNA screening, ADME and high content screening, as well as for clone selection.
Determination of microbial cell viability
Tecan Group Ltd.

The BacTiter-Glo Microbial Cell Viability Assay is a luminescence-based assay for the determination of the viability of microbial cells, using quantification of ATP as an indicator of metabolically active, viable cells. The assay protocol comprises the addition of the BacTiter-Glo reagent directly to the sample, and subsequent measurement of luminescence; cell washing, removal of culture medium, and multiple pipetting steps are not required.
Stem cell research: Creating blood for high throughput screening
Tecan Group Ltd.

Many different research fields, including investigation of early human development processes, disease research, drug discovery and cellular therapy applications, require appropriate in vitro models which can accurately mimic in vivo processes to provide biologically relevant results. Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) offer a powerful system for creating in vitro models to address these questions.
