Summary of "High-throughput screening for improved microbial cell factories, perspective and promise."

High-throughput screening is a critical part of any industrial strain engineering effort, helping ensure the lowest cost product is produced in the shortest amount of time. Small-scale testing that correlates to manufacturing scale allows rapid strain development with confidence that engineering changes are relevant at-scale. In this review, the current state of high-throughput screening, the technological advances for the next generation strain screening pipeline, and options for implementation are reviewed. New technologies in cell culture (optofluidics) and measurement (acoustic mist ionization mass spectrometry) are highlighted, and special considerations (i.e. cost models, correlation between scales, data quality) are discussed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rapid methods of measuring the effects of an agent in a biological or chemical assay. The assay usually involves some form of automation or a way to conduct multiple assays at the same time using sample arrays.

Large collections of small molecules (molecular weight about 600 or less), of similar or diverse nature which are used for high-throughput screening analysis of the gene function, protein interaction, cellular processing, biochemical pathways, or other chemical interactions.

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.

Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.
