The handbook was first launched in 2017 as a comprehensive reference guide for live-cell analysis technologies, with a focus on the complete suite of Incucyte® live-cell assays and reagents.  The handbook has been well received by Incucyte® users, generating over 2,500 requests of its 3rd edition. 

The live-cell applications covered in the handbook include cell culture quality control assays and kinetic assays for cell health, proliferation, and viability; cell migration and invasion, protein dynamics, complex cell models; and neuronal models.  The 4th edition includes new sections on assays for evaluating Organoid Culture QC, ATP Metabolism, and Cell Cycle.   Additionally, there is a new chapter on kinetic assays for immune cell health and function.

“This new edition truly encompasses the broad range of assays that can be accomplished across multiple therapeutic areas, allowing scientists to push the boundaries of cell-based assays.  Of particular interest in this edition are...

The Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis System allows for real-time, uninterrupted monitoring of a range of cell types, from proliferating tumor cells to sensitive primary cells. Validated Incucyte® live-cell assays, reagents and protocols, allow scientists to explore questions across a range of applications and research fields, without the limitations of end point assays.  The handbook is written by Sartorius scientists and product managers, and updated yearly to include the newest offerings.
