Cell-Imaging and Luminescence Based Cytotoxicity Analysis using the EnSight Multimode Plate Reader


  • Cytotoxicity remains one of the major causes of drug withdrawal and there is an urgent need for reliable and time-saving assay workflows. Cells exposed to toxic compounds show a variety of phenotypes including the loss of membrane integrity, cell shrinkage and nuclear fragmentation.

    In this LabRoots webinar, sponsored by PerkinElmer®, you will hear why these are ideal effects to be analyzed using cell imaging in addition to conventional cytotoxicity assays. Learn about the EnSight® multimode plate reader’s capabilities to detect cytotoxicity using multiple parameters on the same sample.

    In this webinar, you will:

    • Get insight into automated image analysis using the Kaleido Data Acquisition and Analysis Software.
    • Learn how to determine the compound effects on cellular viability and proliferation by comparing the use of brightfield imaging and ATP detection, in a real life application of both anti-cancer drug discovery and in-vitro toxicity testing.
    • See how live cell imaging can provide additional information and save you time and money.
