The Automation Partnership (TAP) has announced CompacT SelecT™ automated cell culture system has been installed at a prestigious, new US defence facility, to produce high quality cell lines in containment conditions.

The CompacT SelecT system sited at this US biodefence campus, part of a foremost medical research centre, will be used for unattended culturing of high quality, assay-ready mammalian cell lines. The system will allow researchers at the facility to safely maintain cells in flasks, as well as standard and transport assay plates, by making programmed media changes in the flasks and plates, all without any manual intervention.

Compact SelecT will enable the culture of many cell lines in parallel without risking cross contamination. The system uses sophisticated tracking to record all processing steps and means researchers can verify the contents of each sample, which is crucial in this facility.

Tim Ward, Director of Cell Culture at TAP explained: “The biodefence facility wanted an automated cell culture system that closely mimicked the centre’s manual handling processes, so that their scientists would not need to make fundamental workflow changes to accommodate the automation into their research. As an established technology proven to successfully culture a wide range of different cell types, they felt confident in choosing CompacT SelecT to help them transition from manual to automated cell culture, while ensuring the quality of cell lines and their personal safety.”
