How to Observe Cell Growth in Cell Factories

Thu Jun 27 13:53:45 CST 2024

Cell factories are tools used for large-scale cell culture, commonly employed in fields such as biopharmaceuticals and vaccine production. The growth status of cells significantly impacts the production process and product quality, making real-time monitoring of cell viability and growth conditions particularly important.

An inverted microscope is a commonly used tool for observing cells, allowing the monitoring of cell viability and growth conditions in cell factories. Because the culture environment is essentially the same between different layers or within the same layer, one can assess the overall condition of the cells in the cell factory by observing the state of cells at the bottom one or two layers or at the edges within the same layer.

For large cell factories, automated microscopy or robotic technology can be used for observation. These technologies, controlled by computers, can automatically adjust the focus and move the stage, thereby improving observation efficiency and accuracy. Additionally, image analysis software can be used to analyze and evaluate the observed cell states, enabling more precise monitoring.

In conclusion, it is crucial to observe cell growth when culturing cells. By employing the methods mentioned above, one can more accurately and efficiently monitor the growth status of cells in Cell factories, providing strong support for the control of the production process and product quality.

The FAI climbed 5.9 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months of 2018, quickening from the 5.7-percent growth in Jan-Oct, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday in an online statement.

The key indicator of investment, dubbed a major growth driver, hit the bottom in August and has since started to rebound steadily.

In the face of emerging economic challenges home and abroad, China has stepped up efforts to stabilize investment, in particular rolling out measures to motivate private investors and channel funds into infrastructure.

Friday's data showed private investment, accounting for more than 60 percent of the total FAI, expanded by a brisk 8.7 percent.

NBS spokesperson Mao Shengyong said funds into weak economic links registered rapid increases as investment in environmental protection and agriculture jumped 42 percent and 12.5 percent respectively, much faster than the average.

In breakdown, investment in high-tech and equipment manufacturing remained vigorous with 16.1-percent and 11.6-percent increases respectively in the first 11 months. Infrastructure investment gained 3.7 percent, staying flat. Investment in property development rose 9.7 percent, also unchanged.
