Corning Lunch & Learn: Tips & Best Practices for Improving Cell-Based Assay Performance

Monday, October 20 2014
11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Location: MassBio, 300 Technology Square, 8th Floor, Cambridge, MA

Today’s scientists are becoming more reliant on the versatility and performance of cell-based assays.  A critical parameter in achieving quality data is understanding how the environment in which the cells are grown will impact cellular physiology and ultimately, the assay. Such factors as microplate and growth surface type, the microenvironment in which the cells will be grown and physiologic stresses the cells are asked to undergo as part of the assay all play an important role in the final outcome.

In this session we will discuss ways to enhance your cell-based assay performance.  Topics include:

  • Why choosing the correct microplate and growth surface is an important consideration for your assay
  • Discuss the importance of media choice and microplate handling on the assay
  • The importance of choosing the correct instrumentation and settings to run your assay


Lunch will be provided.
