Agilent unveils real-time cell imager

October 8, 2019 0 By FM

Agilent Technologies has launched xCELLigence RTCA eSigh analyzer for research work that allows scientists to observe cell behaviour and movement in real-time.

The new analyzer combines cell imaging with hardware for tracking metrics such as proliferation, differentiation and changes in morphology when exposed to different treatments, and automatically monitors developments over minutes, hours or days.

“With one experiment, scientists can now get two vantage points into cell health and their responses to a variety of chemical or biological manipulations, giving them greater confidence in the data they collect,” Todd Christian, VP and general manager of the company’s cell analysis division, said in a statement.

The new eSight real-time cell analyzer is designed to read a 96-well plate in 15 seconds, across several formats, while supporting three fluorescence channels and an array of reporter reagents. It also allows for flexible scheduling, with a single setup procedure for parallel imaging and cell analysis.

Agilent acquired the xCELLigence biosensor technology through its purchase of cell analyzer manufacturer ACEA Biosciences last September.
