Scientists who use live cell imaging to count adherent cells cultured in microplate wells must label the cells or cellular substructures with fluorescent dyes. However, these labeling processes are invasive and typically toxic to cells, causing abnormal cellular behavior and compromising scientific findings. Label-free imaging and analysis of cells using the brightfield imaging channel is a non-invasive, non-toxic alternative to fluorescent microscopy, but is challenging using conventional microscopes and automated imaging systems.

In this webinar brought to you by Tecan, Christopher Wolff and Magdalena Eckschlager discuss how this technology enables rapid, easy-to-use cell counting of adherent cells in microplate wells, creating new opportunities for researchers to conduct live cell experiments and non-invasive cell analysis.

Topics to be covered

  • Application of the Spark Cyto technology for live cell experiments and non-invasive cell analysis
  • Improving the cell painting assay's ability to predict the mode-of-action of unknown substances 
  • How label-free cell counting enables proteome data normalization without additional dyes
