Microstructured cell arrays are obtained by patterning of extracellular matrix (ECM) components on a substrate to control cell spread. Because such arrays are of interest to different fields related to cell biology, automatic production and parallelized assays are needed. With complete automation of ECM 2D patterning and whole-slide image acquisition, the InnoStamp 40™ and the InnoScan 1100AL™ are ideal tools for high-throughput assays for the study of cell fate decisions in the presence of external stimuli such as drugs, toxins or mechanical stress.
