BioTek will also feature the BioSpa™ Live Cell Analysis System, MultiFlo™ FX Multi-Mode Dispenser and the industry-leading 405™ TS Washer and much more. 


SLAS2020 Short Course


Set-up and Validation of 3D Primary, Stem Cell and Immortalized Cultures for Downstream Microplate Reader and Imaging Applications

Sunday, January 26, 2020
8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Instructors: Austin Mogen, PhD, Field Application Scientist, Corning Incorporated Life Sciences and Joe Clayton, PhD, Principal Scientist, BioTek Instruments.


Mammalian cell culture has long been an invaluable tool in cell biology, drug discovery, and regenerative medicine. When cell culture techniques were first developed, 3-Dimensional (3D) systems were utilized. That rapidly changed due to cost and efficiency concerns resulting in cell culture being performed today with adherent cells grown on flat and rigid two-dimensional (2D) substrates, including polystyrene or glass. Advances in our understanding of cell physiology and failures in clinical trials have provided the impetus to move away from 2D systems and back to a more in-vivo-like 3D environment. The advance of these new technologies and screening methodologies have allowed scientists to assess more realistic functional capabilities of cells. This course will focus on the cellular microenvironment and its importance when developing and screening cell-based assays using primary, stem cell, and immortalized cultures in 3D systems.

Poster Presentations


Our scientific team will present many posters demonstrating popular screening and imaging applications using biochemical, cell-based and live cell assays with instrumentation from BioTek.

  • Stimulation of Human Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells
  • Automated Workflow for Long-term Culturing and Assaying Mass Quantities of Uniform Spheroids Using Elplasia Microplates
  • High-throughput 3D Assay Using 1536-well ULA Microplates and MultiFlo FX Liquid Handler
  • A Homogeneous FRET-based HTS Assay for Quantification of pRb in Breast Cancer Cell Lines to Monitor Inhibition of GO / G1 Cell Phase Transition
