Bioprocessing and Cell Culture A Practical Approach for the Modern Laboratory
With the Biobased World among this week’s focal topics, biotechnology should be visible and tangible at Achema, said Dr. Tanja Musiol at a pre-Achema press conference on 6 May.
As Global Project Leader Marketing with life sciences specialist Eppendorf, Musiol works to show how good techniques and equipment can help overcome common problems in bioprocessing and cell culture labs.
Accordingly, the Eppendorf stand features a realistic lab setup. Three guided tours each day will introduce visitors to cell cultivation, bioprocesses, and analytics. Naturally, potential customers can also learn about specific equipment items including a new Bio Flo control station, a new pipette, a new centrifuge, and a new generation of Cryo Cube freezers.
“Typical challenges for our customers who work with cells in the lab is what can they do to prevent contamination,” Musiol said. “Or when you want to grow cells, how do you make sure that cell growth is homogeneous across a whole 96-well plate?”
Eppendorf has developed a simple way of insulating the outer wells, eliminating differences in temperature and evaporation rate that can lead to a loss of reproducibility, Musiol said. but
