Developmental biology is that branch of life science, the branch of life science that deals with the study of the processes.
Drosophila embryonic development
Studying the growth and development of organisms covers a variety scientific disciplines and has significant implications for human health, such as the prevention and treatment of human developmental abnormalities. This research area can involve the study of cell differentiation and embryonic development including stem cells as well as the examination of cell cycle, cell growth and cell proliferation. Common applications in developmental biology research include Zebrafish and C. elegans which are used for the study of cellular differentiation, gene function and developmental processes in an intact organism.
Imaging-based assays have been used by developmental biology researchers for many years because they provide the power to really understand complex developmental processes. Researchers recognize the need to quantify and visualize in real-time at a sub-cellular resolution and analyze several events simultaneously.
Drawing on many years of experience, PerkinElmer offers a range of cellular imaging and analysis solutions to developmental biology researchers across the globe. Our dedicated team of specialists have an in-depth knowledge of imaging-based developmental biology applications and will help you select the right solution for your research.
