Poster #22: Nathan Hansen – Microwell Based Digital Growth Assays for Studying Cell-to-Cell Heterogeneity in Growth

Faculty mentor: Thomas Zangle

We validate the use of microwell arrays as a platform for digital cell growth assays. This approach shows improvements over traditional bulk cell counting assays by capturing cell-to-cell heterogeneity information in addition to population-based averages. To ensure accessibility, imaging was conducted manually at three time steps. Experiments with both nonadherent and adherent cell lines validate population-based measures of doubling time while showing the spread of individual cell growth rates.
