ECIS is a highly versatile and reliable method that allows automated measurement of cell matrix adhesion, cellular migration and tumor-endothelial interactions. This is now a routinely used method, replacing most conventional methods in our laboratories. We have three ECIS units that are currently used heavily in our studies and are looking to invest in another unit in order to cope the increasing demand for the system. It has proved to be an invaluable approach in our investigation into cancer cell migration and invasion.”

One question of great interest in radiation biology is the effect of low doses of ionizing radiation. Methods and approaches that yield information close to the threshold of detection are of great interest. ECIS affords very sensitive noninvasive electrical surveillance over time presented with an extremely powerful investigative tool. It allows us to obtain information on both the magnitude and kinetics of the biological response under consideration in real time. The data we obtained from ECIS culminated in a publication and subsequent acquisition of an instrument by our Center. From our initial contact followed by an on-site seminar and subsequent demonstration instrument, representatives of Applied Biophysics, as well as their technology, have been delightful to interact with. I would strongly encourage any investigator considering a cellular response assay to make use of the Applied Biophysics ECIS platform.”
