Measure Phagocytosis in Real Time


The IncuCyte® Live-Cell Analysis System enables real-time, automated phagocytosis assays within your cell culture incubator.

  • Visualize and quantify phagocytosis using time-lapse imaging
  • Automated analysis over the entire assay time course
  • Simple mix and read 96/384-well protocols, no washing, no fixing, no lifting
  • Highly sensitive measurements, low background and low cell numbers

IncuCyte® Phagocytosis Assays vs. Other Common Approaches

Common methods used to assess phagocytosis are often single point (e.g. High Content Analysis (HCA)), require cell lifting (e.g. flow cytometry) or washing/quenching of the labelled pathogen (e.g. fluorescein labelled).
