Phenotypic screening in 3D culture including ECM : Advantages and challenges
Speaker: Nathalie Maubon, HCS Pharma (CEO, CSO), Grégory Maubon, PhD, HCS Pharma (Digital Coordinator, CDO)

Cellular assay in 3D culture have shown many advantages to better mimic in vivo situations. Nevertheless, 3D technology used for phenotypic screening is often really simple, as in the use of ULA plates. But we can go further by using 3D technologies which allow reproduction of the microenvironment of a healthy or pathological organ of interest. During this talk, we will discuss how the cellular microenvironment impacts the proliferation and/or differentiation of cells. A few examples will be presented in oncology, CNS and metabolic diseases fields. High-Content Screening (HCS) devices, such as the ImageXpress® Micro Confocal system, are now fast enough and sensitive enough to allow image acquisition in 3D cellular models. Nevertheless, to go further, perceptions and processes need to be changed. We will highlight new, cutting-edge technologies, including virtual and augmented realities, deep learning and machine learning, and explain how these new technologies can be of benefit to phenotypic screening.
Time-saving tips and tricks for scaling up workflows for single-cell cloning
Speaker: Steve Wiltgen, PhD, Molecular Devices, Product Manager
Tuesday, February 5, 2:00pm-2:45pm
Walter E. Washington Convention Center l Room 144A
Biologics have seen tremendous growth in recent years, but their discovery and manufacturing remains costly and time-consuming. Single-cell cloning, critical in processes from early drug screening to manufacturing, has traditionally been inefficient. Increasing the process efficiency has been limited by the available technologies, published data, and trade secrets. This tutorial will explore the latest in technologies and published literature for scaling up single-cell cloning workflows.
