The Why and How of Live-Cell Imaging for Research and Drug Discovery

Introduction

Live-cell imaging, the study of living cells using microscopy, has become a requisite technology in many fields of biomedical research, such as cell biology, developmental biology and cancer research. Also, in drug discovery, researchers adopt live-cell imaging as they look for a more detailed understanding of cellular behavior.

In our article, learn about:

  • The 3 different categories of live-cell assays
  • 5 key benefits of live-cell imaging assays
  • Examples of key live-cell assays, e.g. calcium flux, immune-cell killing, single-cell tracking
