Cell Proliferation and Viability Assays

Characterizing cell proliferation is a crucial aspect of biological research and therapeutic drug development. Most current methods for evaluating cell proliferation are limited by end point assays that rely on indirect measurements to approximate the size of a cell population.

Kinetic live cell proliferation assays using the Lionheart™ FX or the BioSpa™ 8 Automated Incubator and Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader deliver detailed characterization of cell population growth over time. These fully automated methods enable accurate quantitative and phenotypic long-term analysis of cell proliferation directly, using either label-free or fluorescent label-based cell counts, or label-free % confluence values.
