Sonata system overview - 
Automated cell culture of mammalian or insect cells in shake flasks

Automated cell culture technology for suspension cells

Sonata is designed to automate the cell culture of mammalian or insect cells growing in suspension in shake flasks.

Sonata uses off-the-shelf consumable items, working with a range of Corning shake flasks (125ml, 250ml or 1 litre).

  Samples are collected ready for cell counting and viability measurement.
Sonata automates:
  • Maintenance of cell stocks
  • Cell line characterisation & selection
  • Culture optimisation – fed batch
  • Stability testing
  • Protein expression
Sonata offers:
  • Automation of existing processes using standard shake flasks
  • Management of a number of different experiments in parallel
  • Unattended operation, including evenings and weekends
  • Investigation of a range of cell culture parameters
Sonata reduces cycle times through rapid identification of optimum cell lines and culture conditions.
Applications include:
