Scope 63 - Live-cell analysis - See what the cells are doing as they do it!

07 August 2017, Scope, Technology

The IncuCyte S3, the latest edition to our Hugh Green Cytometry Core facility, is a flexible assay platform that sits inside a standard tissue culture incubator and automatically acquires and analyses fluorescent images of living cells.

This exciting technology enables our scientists to set up experiments not possible before, such as continuous monitoring of cellular kinetics over weeks or months.  Cells remain in an incubator while the images are being acquired, giving minimal cellular disturbance, thus protecting cell health and morphology.

Our scientists will be able to gain a better understanding of cell health, function, migration & invasion and other workflows such as transfection efficiency or dilution cloning.
