Training Video: From Culture to Assay, Live-Cell Analysis

Academic and pharma cell-based assay research, rely on forms of measurement of living cells. There is a chance to learn/monitor the cells prior to analysis, from the moment cells are placed in culture. Live-Cell Analysis allows real-time analysis with full cell tracking workflows.

This practical and informative session will train and guide you through the entire workflow process of setting up an assay, from harvesting cells, manipulating plates to conducting kinetic assays and analyzing data using the integrated software.

This training supplies examples and practical tips for gathering the best data. A number of instrument choices like objectives, scanning, and signal types are also discussed.

After observing this training video, you should be more confident in:

  • Carrying out quantitative analysis to gather relevant information from imaging data
  • Sufficient sampling of wells for statistically significant analysis results
  • Imaging duration and temporal resolution (discover late-stage activities) – length and frequency
  • Understanding more about cell growth, health and morphology of cells in culture, in consideration to physiological conditions
  • Optimizing spatial resolution (avoiding phototoxicity)
  • Acquiring artifact free monitoring
  • Recognizing the how vital cell culture conditions are during acquisition – maintain uncompromised incubation conditions to limit perturbation of the cell microenvironment (constant temp, CO2, humidity, and no physical disturbance/movement)
  • Understanding that the value of the data is only as good as its relevance to physiological conditions
  • Undertaking analysis without disturbing cultures or removing cells from the incubator
  • Profiling cell type-specific and time-dependent biological activity, then validating your results with movies and images
  • Knowing how manipulation can influence the consistency of pre-treatments and cell plating

About Sartorius


Sartorius is a leading international pharmaceutical and laboratory equipment supplier. With our innovative products and services, we are helping our customers across the entire globe to implement their complex and quality-critical biomanufacturing and laboratory processes reliably and economically.
