Mass cell culture automation

Reliance Precision Limited has been working in partnership with Greiner Bio-One on developing CELLswing – an automated manipulator, which gently moves and rotates a CELLdisc containing adherent mammalian cells in any required position.

Cellswing

Reliance collaborated with Greiner to contribute design and manufacturing expertise to develop a compact prototype of the CELLswing, which is used for automatically positioning the CELLdisc (from four up to 16 layers) to process adherent mammalian cells.

Scientists can control both the speed and rotation of the CELLswing remotely to automate activities, such as buffer washes and trypsinization.
