Assay Miniaturization Strategies:  Smaller and Cheaper Cell-Based Assays for HCA

Learn from Dr Anthony Davies, Director, TCIQ, Queensland, Australia at CellTech India 2015 in Bangalore on March 2-3, 2015.

Abstract

To sustain the viability of large-scale research programs running in academia and industry (especially when considering the current global economic climate), it is essential to reduce research costs wherever possible.  With the advent of micron resolution robotics and nano-litre capable liquid handlers, assay miniaturization for large-scale High-Content Screening is now possible. The advantages of miniaturization are clear, when one considers the savings in reagents and experimental materials and experimental turnaround times.  However miniaturization can also be costly to set up and difficult to deploy.
