Applications

  • 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.

  • eLife, 2018

    Congratulations to the teams at University of Washington, Caltech, Drexel University and The Howard Hughes Medical Institute on their joint publication in eLife. The paper uses custom black micromesh arrays for studying cell fate decisions in T-cells.

  • Oncotarget, 2018

    Congratulations to Shariful Islam and the team at the University of Arizona on their recent publication in Oncotarget. The paper uses 50μm and 125μm microgrid arrays for time-lapse imaging of single hematopoietic cells.

  • Cell Cycle, 2018

    Congratulations to Kim Pham, Phil Hodgkin and the team at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute on their recent publication in Cell Cycle. The paper uses microgrid arrays for time-lapse imaging and tracking of B cells.

  • PNAS, 2018

    Congratulations to Alex Hoffmann and the team at the University of California and the University of Utah on their recent publication in PNAS. The paper uses microgrid arrays for studying proliferation and cell lineage trees of B lymphocytes.

  • 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.

50μm micromesh arrays discontinued

The 50μm micromesh arrays have now officially been discontinued. Possible alternatives are the new 75μm micromesh arrays and the 50μm microgrid arrays, both of which are currently available.
