The Automation Partnership (TAP) announces that for the first time it will be showing its full range of stem cell processing automation, to facilitate the production of high quality stem cells, on Stand 820 at the International Society of Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Conference.

TAP is currently the only company providing a complete automated stem cell processing workflow with picking and harvesting cells, through to expansion and analysis, enabling researchers to produce consistent quality stem cells.

For the first time TAP, and their strategic partners Aviso and Chipman, will have their full suite of stem cell processing systems on display together: These include CellCelector™ for cell picking and transfer of stem cells into plates. TAP’s CompacT CellBase automatically controls the simultaneous culture of different stem cell lines in up to 90 T-flasks. The cells expanded on CompacT CellBase can then be analyzed by Cell-IQ®, the live cell observation and analysis system that automatically monitors and quantifies changes in cell morphology and distribution, without using any labels or dyes.

On the stand, TAP’s stem cell experts will be available for discussions on how its systems can perform together in a stem cell research environment. Additionally, there will be specialists on hand from TAP’s Advanced Projects Group, the custom automation division of TAP, to discuss how TAP’s existing products can be adapted to fit new applications, or to consider ideas for designing new systems for stem cell research processes that are difficult to perform manually.

Tim Ward, Director of Cell Culture at TAP stated: “The ISSCR is the major show for stem cell research and we’re excited to be able to demonstrate TAP’s full capability at such an important forum. Using our suite of stem cell processing systems: CellCelector, CompacT CellBase and Cell-IQ, scientists can find the best cells, grow, and analyze them, while documenting their work, all with minimal intervention.”

Ward added: “We look forward to welcoming scientists at Stand 820 and to showing them how they can reduce the time spent on many of these laborious processes, while standardizing the quality of their stem cells, which is so critical to the success of many research applications.”
