Handbook: 5th Edition Live-Cell Analysis

The Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis Systems and suite of validated assays, are used to monitor cells in real-time for days, or even weeks, directly from the incubator. Researchers studying tumors, immune cells, neuronal cells or complex models, rely on the advanced capabilities of this platform to gain deeper insights about cell behavior and function, in a non-perturbing way. 

The live-cell field is always evolving, and researchers need a way to stay up to date on new instruments, applications, assays and reagents. We created the Live-Cell Analysis Handbook as a companion guide for our Incucyte® users. It includes an in-depth discussion of live-cell analysis, with dedicated chapters for different applications using our validated Incucyte® Live-Cell Assays. The handbook is extremely popular with our users, so we update it every year with our newest offerings. 

The 5th Edition Live-Cell Analysis Handbook carries over the digital upgrades from the previous edition, and features new kinetic assays for phagocytosis, organoid models and label-free cell analysis.
