Whether it's a media optimization experiment, a drug dosing study, or an in-vitro toxicology study, having an accurate visual representation of your experimental layout can help alleviate some of the cognitive load by visually orienting you to the layout of your cell culture plate.

The mapping functionality built into CultureTrax allows users to color code rows, columns, or individual wells of any vessel in their culture track, and label the wells with split ratios, seeding density, or, in the example of a dosing experiment, compound specific text labels. (50 character max).

  1. You can access the map functionality by choosing a vessel from either the starting or ending vessel array.

  2. In the map screen you will see a simplified representation of your vessel. This is the default map that the platform uses as a place holder.

    1. Select "Add a Map"

  3. CultureTrax has three map types that you can choose from, 'Seeding Density", "Split Ratio", and "Label". Note, after you select the map type you will be required to name it. (not shown). After you've chosen your map type and named it, click on "Create Map"
