Tune into our live webinar to hear Dr. Ralph Garippa discuss the recent trends in cell culture.

Live Air Date: Thursday, October 13, 2011

Dr. Garippa discusses the recent trends in cell culture which include: the increasing use of stem cells in compound screening, the integration of label-free assays along with conventional assays, and the use of innovative de-cellularized scaffolding and synthetic materials for cell growth.

Key questions to be addressed:

  • How do you see the field of cell-based screening evolving?
  • What are the pros and cons of using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) in screening?
  • What are some of the recent innovations in cell culture reagents and substrates?
  • How are label-free technologies impacting cellular screening?
  • What do scientists and managers in cell culture labs need to be aware of?
