incucyte system

Cellular research is continually shifting to more complex and dynamic cell models, such as primary cells, stem cells and tissue organoids, that more accurately reflect in vivo biological systems. These models require more elaborate and continual monitoring and analysis. From the moment cells are placed in culture, whether freshly harvested or defrosted from a cryo-vial, the learning opportunity begins.

Change can happen in an instant. However, most laboratories lack formal processes for continual monitoring of cells. Important questions such as “Are the cells supposed to look like that?” or “Have the cells grown, changed, or differentiated?” are often overlooked or addressed subjectively. Also, rare or transient events are often not captured, compromising the validity and reliability of any experimental observations and, ultimately, the integrity of your research. IncuCyte® real-time live-cell imaging technology ensures you never miss a crucial data point again.
