Advances in Live Cell Imaging Applications: Quantifying real time cellular responses from seconds to weeks

Meeting Description:
Cellular behavior is complex and dynamic. While end-point assays provide a single snapshot of this behavior, it is only when live cells are continually monitored that a more complete understanding of this behavior is realized.  At issue however is the duration of these dynamics which can occur over seconds, as in the case of intracellular calcium signaling; or continuously, such as the proliferation of a population of cells.  In this webinar we will demonstrate advantages and important considerations for a number of live cell imaging assays that require a wide range of time resolution including: 
  • Calcium signaling (sub-second)
  • Nuclear translocation (minutes)
  • Cell migration (hours)
  • Cell proliferation and cytotoxicity (hours)
  • Tumor invasion (days)
Unique hardware requirements for each of these applications will be reviewed, such as on board injectors for rapid kinetics and precise environmental control for assays spanning days to weeks.  Additionally, this webinar will cover sophisticated image analysis tools that deliver reproducible quantitative as well as qualitative insight into cellular behavior.
