Panasonic Production Engineering Co., Ltd.
An automated cell culture system, which continuously supplies cells, has been developed.
Automating manual techniques Reproducing techniques by thoroughly analyzing manual work and utilizing our manipulation control technique
Ensuring repeatability Enabling tests under the same conditions by stable mechanical movement
Improving observation functions Observing cells using a microscope with image capturing function
Measures against biohazards Class II safety cabinet-equivalent performance by HEPA-filtering of exhaust gas
Measures against contamination Preventing contamination by periodic decontamination work and UV irradiation of the unit
Scheduling Automatically conducting preset movements and maintaining history records of each culture vessel
Achieved a compact size that can be easily installed in a laboratory by designing structures that enable replacement with a clean bench
Fully automated passages
Realized fully automated passages, which are difficult in a conventional system, by automatically determining the timing for passages
Enabling unique experiments
Developed an easy-to-use system by modularizing the system into selectable modules and adopting programmable operations in accordance with customer needs
Culture medium replacement, passage, cell observation
