Cell-Based Solutions for Cancer Research

Cell-based assays are a proven and powerful tool for gaining a more complete understanding of cancer biology, providing more meaningful results in more physiologically relevant systems than classical biochemical assays - instrumental in streamlining cancer research and drug discovery.

Whether you are a basic researcher trying to better understand biological processes in cancer cells or investigating how drugs affect those processes, we have the tools you need to advance your cancer research and discovery.

Our cell-based cancer research solutions allow you to:

  • Gain deeper insights from phenotypic screening of live cancer cells, 3D cell models, and stem cells with our high content screening and informatics solutions
  • Monitor the health of cells with luminescence assays
  • Study the mechanisms of metal-based chemotherapy resistance in single cells using our innovative SC-ICP-MS system
  • Compliment traditional histochemistry techniques using IR spectroscopy to evaluate features of the tumor microenvironment

For research purposes only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Applications & Techniques

High-Content Analysis

Cell imaging has revolutionized cancer biology by enabling cells to be seen more clearly and in more detail.

Take your cell imaging to the next level with high-content analysis:

  • Gain more information from cellular samples and complex 3D cell models
  • Create meaningful functional screening assays for the development of drugs which prevent tumor growth and metastasis
  • Answer more questions simultaneously with multi-parametric data sets that are more information-rich compared to non-imaging read-outs

Biomarker Detection

Biomarkers play an integral part of the cancer story, from detection through therapy. They are used to determine whether individuals are predisposed to certain types of cancer, in establishing specific diagnoses, and prognosis. In addition to their role in cancer detection, biomarkers are key therapeutic target in within cancer drug discovery.

Our biomarker detection kits are designed to excel in applications that require high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, and easy automation.

Cell Signaling Analysis

Cancer is a complex disease in which changes in one cell or group of cells leads causes a disruption of normal cell function and ultimately allows cancerous cells to over proliferate within the body. An important area of study within cancer research is cell signaling. As we learn more about how cell signaling works within healthy cells and what happens when signaling goes awry, we can design therapies targeted at these pathways which block the signals cancer cells send to evade the immune system.
