Cell Analysis

Many different cell analysis techniques are used to help elucidate factors affecting cell proliferation, death, health, and function. Our cell analysis instruments and reagents allow researchers to utilize a variety of techniques, including live cell imaging, cell counting, cell health, cell isolation, and cell migration and invasion. In addition to standard reagents and kits, our specialty instruments provide additional tools to researchers investigating cell processes. The CellASIC® ONIX2 Microfluidic System allows for precise control over complex culture environments while allowing researchers to image in real-time.

Live Cell Imaging Reagents

Reagents for live cell imaging are designed to be nontoxic and to protect live cells while optimizing visualization during real-time studies of cell trafficking and localization, cell health, gene expression, migration, cytoskeletal dynamics, and other cellular events.

Live/dead cell double staining
Cell Health Analysis

Protect valuable cell cultures and assess the effects of experimental treatments using assays for cell viability, proliferation, toxicity, and detection/elimination of mycoplasma and other culture contaminants.

The Cell Comb scratch assay measures cell migration
Cell Migration & Invasion Assays

Our comprehensive portfolio of migration assays, invasion assays, scratch assays, and chemotactic and haptotactic Boyden chamber assays enable researchers to simulate the conditions and activities of normal and metastatic cells in vivo.

Cytoskeletal enrichment assays
Cell Isolation Kits

Perform safe, efficient isolation with high yields of stem cells and other critical cell phenotypes, preadipocytes, nuclei, and subcellular complexes such as proteasomes. 

The Scepter™ 3.0 cell counter can be used in the tissue culture hood
Cell Counting Equipment

Accurate, consistent cell counting is critical for cell culture and downstream cellular assays and experiments. A handheld coulter counter provides the most accurate and reproducible cell counts in seconds. Disposable hemocytometers reduce risk in infectious settings.
