  • Nantes, France

Join our local French team at the 2nd Annual Meeting of the French Society for Stem Cell Research, which aims to bring together researchers from France and abroad working in different areas of stem cell research.

There is a continued trend towards the development of more sophisticated and physiologically relevant in vitro assays such as stem cell derived models and 3D spheroid assays. Scaling up these assays from manual slide-based microscopy to automated microscopy and high-content screening in multi-well plates has been challenging to many researchers.

Come and talk to our friendly team about our cellular imaging technologies for the acquisition and analysis of stem-cell derived models, whether you’re scaling up simple assays or implementing complex high-throughput screening assays.

Title: Stem cell imaging techniques and tools – from basic research applications through to 3D high-content screening

Presenter: Guillaume Frugier, Application Scientist, Molecular Devices

Scientists’ expanding knowledge and understanding of stem cells is transforming the way we research human biology and medicine. Stem cells’ ability to differentiate into a variety of human cell types gives researchers new opportunities to study targets and pathways relevant to disease processes. They serve as a more reliable model to identify and confirm drug targets and generate pharmacology and toxicology breakthroughs with strong translation to the clinical setting. The application of stem cells in drug development creates a path to personalized medicine, while at the same time reducing, or even potentially replacing, animal testing.

This short snapshot presentation will give an overview of our cellular imaging technologies for the acquisition and analysis of stem-cell derived models, whether you’re scaling up simple assays or implementing complex high-throughput screening assays, for example phenotypic characterization of iPSC-derived spheroids using functional and cytotoxicity assays.
