The ability to dispense liquids into the plates afterward enables the fully automated and reproducible washing of entire microwell plates in a high-throughput manner. Here, we determined washing efficiencies achieved by the C.WASH for different rotational speeds in 96-well and 384-well microplate formats.

The fact that the majority of microbial organisms remain unexplored holds enormous potential to discover new metabolic pathways that can be applied in biotechnological processes or used to develop new therapeutics. We present a workflow for exploring such microbial dark matter, based on single-cell isolation and genetic characterization.

The long-distance transportation of mammalian cells usually requires cryo-preservation in dry ice or liquid nitrogen. Both of these methods are hazardous in nature and associated with high shipping costs. Here, we present the cost-effective shipping of 3D bioprinted constructs at ambient temperature using a novel encapsulation technology WellReady™ from Atelerix.
