Organoid Innovation Center

Modular, automated 3D cell culture and image analysis lab enables customers to streamline and scale organoid interrogation, advancing drug discovery research

Automated 3D cell culture and image analysis lab streamlines and scales complex biology research

The new Organoid Innovation Center at Molecular Devices combines cutting-edge technologies with novel 3D biology methods to address key challenges of scaling complex 3D biology.

The collaborative space brings customers and researchers into the lab to test automated workflows for organoid culturing and screening, with guidance from in-house scientists.

An end-to-end solution standardizes the organoid development process with cell culture, treatment, and incubation, through to imaging, analysis, and data processing, delivering consistent, unbiased, and biologically-relevant results at scale.

Quickly adopt innovative, 3D biological methods and technologies for drug discovery

The center expands beyond imaging to demonstrate a fully-integrated solution that addresses the challenges associated with every step in the sample prep-to-report pipeline for assays performed on complex 3D biological models.

The Organoid Innovation Center showcases cutting-edge instruments that work harmoniously together for autonomous, long-term, live cell 2D and 3D cell culture growth and monitoring with intelligent label-free imaging. This integrated workflow provides quality control alerts and readiness, 3D organoid screening, and deep learning image analysis that reveals hidden patterns other technologies miss.

With intuitive scheduling software researchers can control the 3D workflow remotely, tracking the cell journey from single cell to differentiated organoid, along the way. Cell culture and incubation is streamlined with an automated incubator and collaborative robot that maintains culture consistency. Media exchange for culture maintenance is standardized and streamlined with automated liquid handling, minimizing manual intervention. 3D model development can be monitored over time with label-free imaging to assess assay readiness – and with real-time feedback, scheduling of automated compound addition and treatment is standardized.


  • Step 1) 2d Pre-culture – Organoids are pre-cultured from iPSC-derived or primary cells (intestine, lung, or brain) 
  • 2단계) Developing 3D Organoids – Cells are transferred to 24-well plates then placed in an incubator to promote cell growth and differentiation into specific tissue in 3D
  • 3단계) Organoid Culture – Organoid culture process require multiple steps with different media exchanges
  • Step 4) Monitor organoid growth & development – Organoid are monitored and characterized for complex analysis of tissue structure and differentiation
  • 5단계) Confocal imaging and 3D analysis – The visualization and characterization of multiple quantitative descriptors used for studying disease phenotypes and compound effects
  • Our new ImageXpress Confocal HT.ai High-Content Imaging system, designed for 3D imaging. This system offers eight high-powered laser excitation channels and automated water immersion objectives that boosts signal and assay sensitivity without sacrificing speed.  Spinning disk confocal technology with five pinhole geometry options reduces haze from out of focus light for deeper organoid penetration and improved axial resolution. For analysis of complex 3D biology, IN Carta Image Analysis Software provides a streamlined workflow with powerful deep-learning based segmentation, machine learning-based classification, and 3D volumetric analysis.

    Cell Painting

    Cell Painting

    Cell Painting is a high-content, multiplexed image-based assay used for cytological profiling. In a Cell Painting assay, up to six fluorescent dyes are used to label different components of the cell including the nucleus, the endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, cytoskeleton, the Golgi apparatus, and RNA. The goal is to “paint” as much of the cell as possible to capture a representative image of the whole cell.

    In this webinar, in collaboration with MIMETAS, we present some of the latest developments in integrating organoid protocols with organ-on-a-chip technology, as well as advancements in the high-content imaging technologies that are enabling these advanced 3D applications. We show how a range of tissue models comprising complex co-cultures can be formed in a perfused system, using state-of-the-art stem cell and organoid protocols, and how such models can then be screened and analyzed within a single, integrated interface to dramatically reduce time to discovery.

  • Moving from 2D to 3D Cell Culture

    Moving from 2D to 3D Cell Culture

    There has been a recent shift toward using 3D cell models in drug discovery and disease modeling, as numerous studies show they better mimic the in vivo environment and provide more physiologically-relevant data than 2D models.



    Organoids are three-dimensional (3D) multi-cellular microtissues that are designed to closely mimic the complex structure and functionality of human organs. Organoids typically consist of a co-culture of cells which demonstrate a high order of self-assembly to allow for an even better representation of complex in vivo cell responses and interactions, as compared to traditional 2D cell cultures.
