Cell Death Assays on Livecyte


Cell dry mass provides a quantitative measurement of the amount of cellular matter contained within the cell membrane.


As cells undergo apoptosis they eject cellular matter causing their dry mass value to decrease.


This provides a natural marker of cell death.

Label-free Cell Death Dose Response Curve


Livecyte can run assays in up to 96 well plate format, enabling a range of repeats and treatment concentrations to be explored in a single experiment.


Cell dry mass can be quantified per treatment, per well and per individual cell over time allowing concentration-dependence to be explored over time.


Livecyte's correlative fluorescence capability allows validation of results with know cytotoxicity labels and correlation to previous work.
