A Technique for Scalable Organoid Culture


Organoid models are promising tools for the study of disease and development of new therapeutics. However, conventional organoid plating is labor and reagent intensive. We will present on how we have applied the low-input MANTIS® to automate the plating of organoids, reducing requirements for expensive reagents, making organoid culture amenable to high-throughput applications.

About the Presenter


Ben Mead is a postdoc in the Shalek Lab at MIT, interested in applying single-cell genomics to improve cellular models of human disease and identify new drug targets and therapeutics. Ben’s research harnesses adult stem cell-derived organoids, particularly from the gastrointestinal tract to advance these next-generation cell models, and has focused on applying these models to inflammatory bowel disease.
