The Cell picking & imaging system. CELL HANDLER™

Cell media change / Expanding cell culture / Picking of adherent spheroids

Please see the following Application examples.

Cell media change

In long-term spheroid culturing, refreshing cell media is a challenging step. CELL HANDLER™ solves this issue by transferring spheroids to new plates, thereby achieving a complete media change (Fig. 1).

Expanding cell culture

Upscaling of cell culture requires transferring of cells or spheroids to plates with larger well sizes, which is done rapidly and efficiently by the CELL HANDLER™ (Fig. 2).

* HT-29(Colorectal) * Tip with >180 µm in diameter is under development.

Picking of adherent spheroids

Adherent spheroids are formed in circular shapes at the bottom of the Cell-able® plate. CELL HANDLER™ transfers these adherent spheroids with high precision.
