Abstract

Making cell culture process automated and efficient is one of the biggest challenges for cell therapy including regenerative medicine, drug screening and body-on-chip drug development. Cell culture process with cell seeding, culturing, detaching and collecting processes is in general conducted manually by a technician. To establish an efficient and stable mass culture process of cells, "informotion technology" may play an important role. By automating cell culture process with actuator/sensor technology and networking them online, know-hows to deal with living cells can be shared. By doing so, we may efficiently provide large number of cells, ready for accelerating regenerative medicine spread. Ultrasonic actuation technology has proved its potentials to be used for cell culture automation.
