is an innovative laboratory bench instrument designed for continuous observation of floating cells suspended in a liquid medium.
It is a Lab-on-a-Chip platform and it skilfully combines optics, electronics and microfluidic technologies to create a robust imaging tool to culture and observe cells in a contamination risk-free environment. The microfluidic system gently controls cell stabilization for imaging purposes and permits to change media and to expose cells to growth factors, pharmacological agents or even viral infections.
By combining fluorescence time-lapse imaging, automated focal adjustment, culture media control technologies, these operations can be performed with minimal stress for the cells. This allows identifying and studying cellular responses to external stimuli, getting valuable insights on dynamic biological processes at cellular and multicellular level.
These features provide perfect experimental conditions and make CELLviewer the perfect tool to perform protocols using suspensions of single cells or single multicellular preparations for a wide range of applications: from basic research, pharmaceutical in-vitro testing and to in-vitro fertilization.
