The CP96 Cell Proliferation system is based upon the ECIS (Electric Cell-Substrate Impedance Sensing) technology where cells are grown upon gold electrodes carrying very weak AC signals. This complete turn-key system provides a means to carry out reproducible, label-free, automated cell proliferation measurements without damaging the cells. Cell-proliferation is monitored as cells are grown in a normal CO2 tissue culture incubator, and data are reported as real-time changes in percent cell coverage.
These non-invasive measurements can be made for days and even weeks without the need to remove the station from the incubator, eliminating unwanted temperature and pH variations.
Compounds affecting cell growth can be introduced before or after the cells have attached to distinguish changes in growth from the ability of the cells to attach to the substrate. And with the capability of measuring 96 wells continuously, the CP96 allows for a high throughput of data to be collected and analyzed in real time, making cell proliferation data acquisition simple and efficient.
