Measure cell health, proliferation and viability in real time

Measurements of cell health (proliferation, apoptosis and cytotoxicity) are essential for studying the effects of drugs, culture conditions or genetic modifications on cell growth or viability. They are crucial means for:

  • Ranking compounds in drug discovery screens
  • Investigating the cellular changes that underlie disease pathologies such as cancer, autoimmune disease and neurodegeneration
  • Assessing factors affecting specific biological processes, such as immune cell activation or stem cell differentiation

Common assays for assessing cell health and viability rely on indirect, end-point measurements that are subject to artefacts and cannot be readily verified by morphology changes.
