Fully Automatic Tissue Screening
Lab robot for tissue-based mass screening (TELOMICS ex vivo Robotics)
The lab automation system TELOMICS ex vivo Robotics was implemented with the cooperation partner KeyNeurotek AG. It was awarded the 2006 “initiative Mittelstand” innovation prize.
TELOMICSTM ex vivo Robotics is a fully automatic system for tissue screening. Particular advantages are its complete integration of tissue culturing and experimentation, which are extremely human resource and time intensive in traditional labs. When novel active ingredients and medicines are being sought in pharmaceutical research, their efficacy is tested on living tissue.
Flexible Lab Automation System
The automated complete screening system TELOMICS ex vivo Robotics combines the advantages of tissue-based screening (functional 3-D network with a diversity of cell types comparable in vivo) with a high test substance throughput in simulated clinical pictures for the first time, analyzing over 5000 tissue sections a week and thus testing up to 150 substances. TELOMICS technologies are currently being employed to research active ingredients against diseases of the nervous system (stroke, Parkinson's).
