Cancer cell Research - Live imaging
The field of cancer research is very broad and involves a multitude of techniques and approaches within cell biology.
One of the important tools is live cell imaging where the current state and changes to individual cells are monitored as they grow or respond to changes in their environment.
The oCelloScope instrument enables the user to record and analyse cell development over long periods of time under ideal environmental conditions (inside incubator). Examples of applications are:
- Differential counting and characterization of cells in order to distinguish between cell types or states
- Detection of growth rates of both individual cells or entire populations
- Comparison between cell cultures grown simultaneously within the same container but under different conditions
- Morphological indicators of apoptosis or other significant health properties
The present example shows a live cell imaging of PC12 cells over a period of 48 hours.
