The IncuCyte® Live-Cell Analysis System enables real-time, quantitative live-cell assays within a tissue culture incubator. The walk-away automation also allows you to gather more information in a faster or more efficient way. An IncuCyte Zoom and an Incucyte S3 are available to all University of Dundee researchers for real-time imaging in phase contrast and green and red fluorescence.

The facility offers:

  • Angiogenesis
  • Proliferation
  • Migration
  • Invasion
  • Co-culture assays

Measure treatment effects automatically and non-invasively. IncuCyte cell proliferation assays allow every well of a 96/384 well plate to be imaged and analyzed automatically to provide a microplate readout of cell proliferation over time. Proliferation time-courses reveal concentration-dependent treatment effects. Transform data into concentration-response curves to compare pharmacology.
