Immune Cell Killing, Single Spheroid

July 16th, 2019

Watch how Herceptin alone, or peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) alone, have no significant effect on the growth of a SKOV-3 ovarian tumor spheroid.

Harnessing the Power of the Immune System: Optimizing T Cell Killing Cancer Immunotherapy

May 22nd, 2019

Immunotherapy has emerged as a real game-changer in cancer therapeutics. After decades of research, there is now hope of boosting an individual’s own immune system to fight cancer by tapping into T cell-based therapies. One group of patients particularly benefiting from these new approaches are those with malignancies previously considered ‘difficult to treat’. Novel immune therapies include chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) therapy and TCR-based adoptive T cell (TCR-T) therapy.

Recent trends in immuno-oncology research and therapy

April 30th, 2019

Some of the challenges in understanding immuno-oncology (I-O) research and treating cancer using I-O therapies arise from the complex interactions between a patient’s immune system and the tumor’s biology. After all, tumors are populations of cells, and populations are subject to evolutionary forces.

White Paper: Live-cell Analysis for Neuroscientists

January 18th, 2019

In this article, we discuss several neurobiology-specific applications using live-cell analysis to assess such processes as basic iPSC-derived neuronal cell health, neurite dynamics, neuronal activity, and microglial phagocytosis and chemotaxis. These assays are noninvasive, nonperturbing, and cell sparing, thus providing a valuable complement to other end-point techniques.

Trapping Microbes: Live-Cell Visualization of NETosis

January 14th, 2019

As first responders against pathogens, the neutrophils migrate from the blood to the infected site to engulf and kill bacteria. In 2004, it was discovered that neutrophils can also kill microbes extracellularly by releasing neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).
