Cell-based assays are a proven and powerful tool for gaining a more complete understanding of cancer biology, providing more meaningful results in more physiologically relevant systems than classical biochemical assays - instrumental in streamlining cancer research and drug discovery.
Whether you are a basic researcher trying to better understand biological processes in cancer cells or investigating how drugs affect those processes, we have the tools you need to advance your cancer research and discovery.
Our cell-based cancer research solutions allow you to:
- Gain deeper insights from phenotypic screening of live cancer cells, 3D cell models, and stem cells with our high content screening and informatics solutions
- Monitor the health of cells with luminescence assays
- Study the mechanisms of metal-based chemotherapy resistance in single cells using our innovative SC-ICP-MS system
- Compliment traditional histochemistry techniques using IR spectroscopy to evaluate features of the tumor microenvironment
For research purposes only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Applications & Techniques
Cell imaging has revolutionized cancer biology by enabling cells to be seen more clearly and in more detail.
Take your cell imaging to the next level with high-content analysis:
- Gain more information from cellular samples and complex 3D cell models
- Create meaningful functional screening assays for the development of drugs which prevent tumor growth and metastasis
- Answer more questions simultaneously with multi-parametric data sets that are more information-rich compared to non-imaging read-outs
Cytotoxicity and cell proliferation assays are widely used in cancer research and drug discovery providing valuable insights to the health of cells.
Study the mechanisms of metal-based chemotherapy at the cellular level in individual cancer cells using Single Cell ICP-MS.
- Gain a better understanding of how cancer cells become resistant to metal-based chemotherapy
- Study and quantify uptake of metal-based nanoparticles in single cells for targeted cancer therapy
- Evaluate effects of potentially new metal-based therapies
Identify chemical and morphologic features of the tumor microenvironment using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopic imaging.
- Innovative stain-free approach to compliment traditional histochemistry techniques
- Differentiate molecular differences between normal and diseased tissues
- Research transition of normal cells into cancerous cells in the tumor microenvironment
