• Live cell imaging

    Complete solutions for extended live cell imaging that enable unprecented tracking and imaging of adherent and non-adherent live cell types.

    The range of surfaces and sizes enables the imaging of cells from hours to days. Custom surfaces and devices can be tailored to meet the requirments of your cells and your application.

  • Single Cell Analysis

    Dynamic live cell analysis of single cells is now possible. Whether you are interested in single cells or small populations of cells over multiple generations, the microcell arrays enable the imaging and tracking of the same cells over long periods.

    Unprecendeted access to large data sets of single cells from a single experiment.

  • High content imaging

    Imaging and screening of large populations of cells with single cell resolution for long periods of time is now possible.

    With the use of the microgrid or micromesh arrays you can now create thousands of individual live cell assays from a single experiment.

  • Cell-cell interactions

    Looking for cell-cell interactions? The unique environment created by the microgrid or micromesh arrays enables the collection and analysis of hundreds of cell-cell interactions from a single experiment no matter when they occur.

    The micromesh arrays when used with a TIRF microscope will offer unprecedented access to membrane protein trafficking.


  • "We have found the microgrids to be the best solution for filming cells over prolonged periods of time."

  • PLOS Biology, 2017

    Congratulations to Daniel Sotckholm and the team at Genethon for their paper in the Journal of PLOS Biology. The paper uses microgrid arrays for characterising transcriptional changes in cord blood-dervied CD34+ at the single cell level using time-lapse microscopy.

  • Journal of Microscopy, 2017

    Congratulations to Phil Hodgkin and the team at WEHI for their paper in the Journal of Microscopy. The paper investigates the use of shading correction on time-lapse fluorescence microscopy datasets.

  • Cytometry Part A, 2017

    Congratulations to Daniel Stockholm and the team at Genethon for their paper in the Cytometry Part A. The paper uses 125 μm microgrid arrya for time-lapse imaging of single cells to add value to data from imaging flow cytometry.

  • Genome Biology, 2016

    Congratulations to Sarah Teichman and collaborators for their recent paper in Genome Biology. The paper involved the use of 50 μm microgrid arrays for live cell imaging of single T cells.

  • Nature Immunology, 2016

    Congratulations to Ellen Rothenberg and the team at Caltech for their recent paper in Nature Immunology. The paper involved the use of 100 μm micromesh arrays for time lapse imaging in order to analyse Bcl11b-YFP levels in progenitor cells.
