Magnetic 3D Bioprinting, Simplifying 3D Cell Culture

Presented by: Glauco R. Souza, PhD, Director of Global Business Development and Innovation, Greiner Bio-One

Despite the growing potential of 3D cell culture models, researchers still face technical challenges in handling, processing, scalability, imaging, and increasing throughput. To address these challenges and simplify complex workflows, we developed our innovative platform, magnetic 3D bioprinting (M3D). By gently magnetizing cells and assembling them using magnetic forces, M3D emerges as a versatile, enabling tool that makes just about any task in your 3D cell culture workflow easier. It offers simplified workflows and enhanced scalability, enabling fine spatial control to form and miniaturize spheroids. Further, M3D allows the assembling of more complex tissue structures using standard flat-bottom microwell plates. This presentation will focus on key developments using this platform, showcasing its potential to revolutionize 3D cell culture.

Novel Monoclonal Antibodies for the Positive Selection of CAR Engineered Cells

Presented by: Greg Warner, PhD, Sr. Field Applications Specialist, Cell Signaling Technology

Introduction: Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy is a powerful new modality for cancer immunotherapy. While much success has been achieved for the treatment of hematological malignancies, targeting solid tumors will require a deeper understanding of CAR-engineered cell biology. There is a need for versatile CAR cell purification reagents that can be used to research and engineer cells with a better therapeutic index. Monoclonal antibodies raised against linker sequences that are commonly integrated into scFv-based CARs, either repeats of a Gly4Ser peptide or a Whitlow/218 peptide, were generated and leveraged for the enrichment of CAR engineered cells. Here, we describe a strategy for magnetic bead-based immunoaffinity enrichment of CAR expressing cells that will enable researchers to characterize highly pure populations of scFv-based CAR expressing cells.

Methods: Biotinylated monoclonal antibodies, E7O2V and E3U7Q targeting either Gly4Ser or Whitlow/218 linkers, respectively, were used in concert with cleavable streptavidin coated magnetic beads to immunoaffinity purify CAR expressing cells.

Results: Flow cytometric analysis of purified cells revealed that E7O2V and E3U7Q could enrich CAR expressing cells with a high degree of purity and viability.

Conclusions: The specificity of monoclonal antibodies, E7O2V and E3U7Q, combined with release from magnetic beads enabled the purification of live cells expressing scFv-based CARs containing either a Gly4Ser linker or a Whitlow linker regardless of CAR antigen specificity. The purified cells obtained from this method are potentially suitable for downstream applications such as single-cell RNAseq.

Automating high throughput flow cytometry with BluePlate

Presented by: Chris Buenaventura, Account Manager, Blue Cat Bio

Blue®Plate enables fully automated sample prep (wash, stain, fix, permeabilize) for flow cytometry with highly effective background removal. While conventional flow cytometry cell wash protocols require pelletizing cells to separate them from supernatant, typically by centrifuging with 300 - 800g for 3 - 5 minutes, Blue®Plate allows an unprecedented trade-off of centrifugation time versus cell retention.

In “High-Speed Mode”, centrifugation time is shortened to <30 seconds while achieving >70% cell retention per wash step.  Cells are not pelletized, subjected to minimal stress, and easily re-suspended. High-Speed Mode is ideal for high-throughput, fully automated screening applications where throughput is critical, cells are abundant and maximum cell retention is not required as well as applications where minimizing cell stress is important.

In “High-Retention Mode”, centrifugation time and g-force are similar to conventional protocols with cell retention per wash step >90%, but easily automated and without requiring tips for removal of supernatant. High-Retention Mode is ideal for applications that require many wash steps and high cell retention % and cells that are more difficult to handle post fixation. In manual workflows, Blue®Plate eliminates the need to manually aspirate supernatant or “flick” plates; in automated workflows Blue®Plate eliminates aspiration tips and optimizing aspiration settings.

Blue®Plate helps prep cells for flow cytometry in a simple 3-Step workflow:

1. Our fully automated Blue®Fuge or a conventional centrifuge deposits cells into Cell®Safe reservoirs at the bottom of Blue®Plate wells.

2. Blue®Washer centrifugally evacuates all of the liquid above the Cell®Safe reservoirs while cells in Cell®Safe reservoirs are safely retained.

3. Blue®Washer dispenser efficiently re-suspends cells from Cell®Safe reservoirs for subsequent washes and adds staining, fixation and permeabilization reagents.

Available for 96well plates, with a 384well version launching in 2024.

Rapid and Sensitive Multimodal Detection of Homogeneous Assay Chemistries on the Envision Nexus™

Presented by: Steven J. Orcutt, Field Application Scientist, Revvity

Medium to high throughput screening (HTS) using either in vitro “biochemical” or cell-based potency assay platforms has become integral to the efficient discovery of therapeutics spanning small molecule and larger biologic modalities, including protein, cell, and gene therapies. Achieving optimal parameters of robustness and sensitivity, while minimizing total time to results, is a must to meet accelerated timeline goals for further development and eventual clinical evaluation. The pairing of platform reagents with instrumentation to deliver state of the art sensitivity and speed is key to delivering on these goals. Revvity has recently launched its next generation Nexus™ multimodal plate reader as part of its established Envision line of instrumentation. We will highlight the improved speed and sensitivity of the Envision Nexus™ for luminescence, time-resolved FRET (HTRF® and LANCE®) and amplified luminescent proximity homogenous assays (Alpha) technologies. Most luminescence and fluorescence 384-well plate reads can be completed in under 90 seconds on the Envision Nexus™, including “on the fly” TR-FRET mode allowing for a full 384-well plate read in under 20 seconds. We will detail how these improvements have been realized on the Envision Nexus™ through its complete redesign, including the simplification of loading optical components, “hands off” aperture replacement, and easy to use Kaleido™ software interface.

Advancing Acoustic Ejection Mass Spectrometry: Next-generation platform for high-throughput sample analysis

Presented by: Jacob McCabe, PhD, Sciex

Co-Authors: Xue Jiao Yin, Chiu Cheong Aw, Han Wang, Aaron Stella, Anuja Bhalkikar, Han Joo Lee

The speed of sample analysis has become a key bottleneck in the drug discovery process. Typically, fluorescent labels are added to molecules of interest or potential new drug candidates for detection and quantitation purposes using plate readers that increase the cost per sample to analyze. Alternative approaches to high-throughput (HT) sample analysis implement mass spectrometry, which enables the label-free detection of the analyte via the mass-to-charge ratio. However, traditional LC-MS analysis requires minutes or hours to analyze samples, whereas traditional plate readers can achieve the necessary characterization in seconds.

This presentation describes the use of a Echo® MS+ system with ZenoTOF 7600 system for the analysis of intact protein and small molecules. The Echo ® MS+ system with ZenoTOF 7600 system uses an alternative approach to rapidly analyze molecules and solve some challenges faced by traditional techniques described above. Liquid samples are pipetted into 384- or 1536-well microtiter plates held by the system and acoustic energy is applied to the bottom of the well plate, causing a nanoliter-sized droplet of the sample to be ejected. The Open Port Interface (OPI) is located above the well plate and captures the ejected droplet for dilution and transport by a carrier solvent (~400 µL/min) of the diluted sample to an electrospray ionization source for ionization and delivery of diluted sample ions to a prototype high-resolution mass spectrometer for analysis.

This study explores important parameters (for example, carrier solvent composition, chemical additives and varying matrices) and system modifications that affect data quality of high-resolution AEMS on a high-throughput scale for robust and reliable system performance in biologically relevant buffers. Preliminary data show that implementing a modification to the OPI allows for a greater than 3x increase in the number of plates analyzed without a degradation of peak performance, thus increasing the robustness of the system. The acoustic ejection profiles have been updated to accommodate the versatility of the platform (for example, increasing the number of MRMs per sample). Samples were prepared using various concentrations and buffers with a Beckman Coulter® Biomek i7 liquid handler to create assay-ready plates. The preliminary AEMS data demonstrate the rapid analysis of compounds, as a 384-well plate can be analyzed in 10-30 minutes (1-5 seconds/sample) over a variety of mass spectrometry experiment types.

Crystal Powderdose: A Gravimetric Solid Dispensing Solution with a User-Friendly Touch Interface

Presented by: Susan Nguyen Pham, Senior Automation Chemist, Chemspeed

Powder dispensing automation technology has been increasing in popularity to eliminate tedious and error-prone manual solid sample preparation. Chemspeed’s CRYSTAL POWDERDOSE unit offers an automated solution to gravimetrically dispense the following source to destination locations: one-to-many, many-to-one, or many-to-many. The integrated balance has a resolution of 10 μg, and allows for the dispensing directly in the milligram to gram range into multiple and different well-plates or vials without human interaction. Furthermore, all weights are recorded after dispense, further eliminating errors in manual record-keeping processes. In this talk, we will discuss features of the CRYSTAL POWDERDOSE; in particular, we will discuss the gripper, RFID reader, balance, sizing, sensors, as well as plate variety. We will also overview the UI design, remote control, and data management. We will also present and discuss representative gravimetric dispense data of five (5) powders at 5, 25, and 100 mg with accuracies of >10%, >2%, and >1% respectively, and standard deviations of >0.85 mg.
