Co-culture duet system
Cerillo’s ready-to-use Co-Culture System is designed for real-time phenotypic measurements. Now you can collect data from your individual microbial populations without the need to custom build a solution!
Advancing Microbiome Research with Cerillo's Co-Culture System
Co-culture systems are essential for studying microbial interactions in the microbiome. However, until now, there have been limited off-the-shelf co-culture options available, resulting in researchers investing significant amounts of time and money to develop and validate their own custom co-culture systems before they can begin their research. That's why Cerillo has launched the first scalable, user-friendly, and cost-effective co-culture system to address these challenges bringing researchers more capabilities than ever before.
Our Co-Culture System Empowers Researchers to:
Mimic natural conditions
Microorganisms in the environment often exist in complex communities, where they interact with each other. Our co-culture systems allow researchers to mimic these natural conditions and study the interactions between microorganisms.
Improve understanding of microbial interactions
Cerillo’s co-culture systems can provide insight into how microorganisms interact with each other. For example, one microorganism may produce a compound that benefits another microorganism, or one microorganism may inhibit the growth of another. These interactions can be difficult to study in isolation.
Identify novel compounds
Our system can also be used to identify novel compounds that are produced by microorganisms. For example, one microorganism may produce a compound that is only active in the presence of another microorganism.
Develop new therapies
And, our system can be used to screen for potential therapeutic agents. For example, researchers can test the ability of a compound to inhibit the growth of a pathogenic microorganism in the presence of a beneficial microorganism.
Our Off-The Shelf Solution Also Optimizes Microbiome Research Efficiencies
Cerillo's Co-Culture system provides researchers with unprecedented access:
to co-culture capabilities without having to design and validate a complicated be-spoke system
to individual populations, enabling researchers to measure them directly and separately.
to directly sample individual cultures during or after the experiment, without the need for complex and expensive equipment or procedures.
Standardization & Scalability
Cerillo's Co-Culture System provides researchers with a standardized method for easier experiment replication and comparison across labs and collaborators.
And our Co-Culture System is:
Compatible with other automation systems giving you the freedom and flexibility to run additional assays on different platforms.
Effective for quick proofs-of-concept, but also preconfigured for higher-throughput work, making it suitable for a wide range of experiment types.
Scalable, enabling high-throughput experiments for faster results and comprehensive data analysis.
