The SearchLite is conducting a Market Discovery Challenge to understand the future of automated tissue dissociation.
Tissue dissociation and cell isolation are key proteolytic enzyme applications in cell biology. Proteases are required for the disruption of the extracellular matrix to release individual cells from tissues for primary cell culture, or to harvest cultured cells for transfer to a new substrate (secondary culture).
Generally, methods for preparing cell suspensions are classified into Mechanical, Chemical or Enzymatical. The latest challenge is to automate this process to support high throughput processing for R&D or drug development applications.
