Protect your cells with proper pipetting - How liquid handling influences your cell culture work

How often do you pipette in your cell culture lab every day? Usually, we do it so often that we tend stop thinking about how to pipette right. With this educational webinar we would like you to stop for a moment, re-think what you are doing, and significantly improve your skills and results.

We would like to share Eppendorf´s almost 60 years of experience in proper liquid handling with you – for more reproducible cell culture results and better contamination protection in your lab.

Join us to participate in the live Q&A session. If you can´t make it just register to receive the link to the recorded session.

Key Topics:

  • Demonstrate how to increase the reproducibility of cell-based experiments with the right pipetting technique
  • Reduce contamination by choosing the right pipetting tool  
  • Define how to set up your working space maintain a sterile environment
  • Tips and tricks for better pipetting

Vero Cell Cultivation for Vaccine Production

Anchorage-dependent cells, such as Vero cells, are widely used as a platform for viral vector production. To cultivate Vero cells in stirred-tank bioreactors, they require a growth matrix to attach to. The development of processes at bench scale is crucial to establish cost-efficient workflows in larger volumes. In this webinar, we demonstrate, how different process parameter can be monitored and controlled in a perfusion bioprocess to cultivate anchorage-dependent cells. We demonstrate the great potential of using packed-bed bioreactors or microcarrier spin filter for attachment cell-based vaccine production.

Key Learning Objectives:

  •  Importance of high-quality pre-cultures for bioreactor inoculation
  •  Importance of process monitoring and control
  •  Hands-on expertise on how to cultivate and grow anchorage dependent cells on different attachment matrixes. 

Who Should Attend: 

  •  Experienced scientists looking for tips and tricks to improve their processes
  •  Scientists that are looking for solutions to produce enough material for the inoculation of large pilot and production sized bioreactors 
  •  Scientists who are interested in the cultivation of anchorage-dependent cells in stirred-tank bioreactors

Date & Time:
Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 10am EDT| 9am CDT| 3pm BST| 4pm CEST

Durtion:  1 hour

Stem Cell Derived Exosome Production in Stirred-Tank Bioreactors

Shakers and bioreactors are established versatile systems for cultivating microorganism, plant, and animal cells in suspension. Both methods aim at increasing the oxygen and nutrient supply in the medium to stimulate culture growth, but offer very different solutions in technique, volumes/throughput, control possibilities, and thus applications. 

In this educational webinar, we will look at the biophysical background of both cultivation techniques, pros and cons, and areas of application. You will also learn how to optimize your process in shaker flasks and bioreactors via proper choice of vessel type, vessel material, instrument configuration, and parameter settings. Additionally, we will introduce the use of feeding techniques in shakers and bioreactors. 

Key Learning Objectives:

  •  Review: Why shake or stirr cells and an outline of system specific differences
  •  Learn how to identify the right cultivation method, vessel type, vessel material, and instrument configuration for your specific needs 
  •  Learn how to define and optimize important parameters to improve culture results – incl. Tips & Tricks  
  •  Learn about feeding strategies in shake flasks & bioreactorsand their impact on your culture
  •  Live “Ask the Expert” session – Deepen your knowledge and optimize your process

Who Should Attend: 

  •  Scientists new to cultivation of cells in suspension in shakers and/or bioreactors
  •  Experienced scientists looking for tips and tricks to improve their processes  

Date & Time:
Thursday, November 5, 2020 at 10am EDT | 9am CDT|  3pm BST | 4pm CEST

Duration: 1 hour
