Summary of "Achieving greater efficiency and higher confidence in single-cell cloning by combining cell printing and plate imaging technologies."

In recent years, health authorities have increased emphasis on demonstrating that a cell line, which is used for the generation of biologics, is clonally derived. Within the past few years, single-cell manipulation technologies, especially microfluidic drop-on-demand dispensing, have gained increased attention in the biopharmaceutical industry. This work discusses the development and characterization of a single-cell printing workflow followed by plate imaging. By combining single-cell printing and plate imaging with manual image verification it is possible to, (1) dramatically reduce the number of microtiter plates needed during the single-cell cloning of clinical cell lines, as compared with a limiting-dilution single-cell cloning workflow, and therefore reduce the number of high-resolution images acquired and stored and (2) achieve >99.99% assurance that the cell lines derived from this workflow are clonally derived.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The formation of one or more genetically identical organisms derived by vegetative reproduction from a single cell. The source nuclear material can be embryo-derived, fetus-derived, or taken from an adult somatic cell.

Reducing staff to cut costs or to achieve greater efficiency.

Single-stranded complementary DNA synthesized from an RNA template by the action of RNA-dependent DNA polymerase. cDNA (i.e., complementary DNA, not circular DNA, not C-DNA) is used in a variety of molecular cloning experiments as well as serving as a specific hybridization probe.

Methods pertaining to the generation of new individuals, including techniques used in selective BREEDING, cloning (CLONING, ORGANISM), and assisted reproduction (REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, ASSISTED).

CELL LINES derived from the CV-1 cell line by transformation with a replication origin defective mutant of SV40 VIRUS, which codes for wild type large T antigen (ANTIGENS, POLYOMAVIRUS TRANSFORMING). They are used for transfection and cloning. (The CV-1 cell line was derived from the kidney of an adult male African green monkey (CERCOPITHECUS AETHIOPS).)
