WATCH: live cell imaging with the InCellis

Watch a video of the mitosis process on the high-quality InCellis cell imager in real-time
Live cell imaging is a key method to study cells, protein expression and a variety of processes and molecular interactions.
Cell migration, cell polarization and apoptosis
Among its many applications, live cell imaging plays a major role in understanding the mechanisms underlying cell migration, cell polarization and apoptosis. For example, the observation of neuronal lamellipodia and filopodia over time has enabled researchers to model neurite outgrowth with unprecedented accuracy.
An innovative approach to fully qualify cell culture samples
Live observation of cells can be challenging as it relies on the optimization of several key parameters such as the choice of fluorescent probes, the level of cell confluency in the sample, the composition of the cell culture medium. InCellis offers an innovative approach to fully qualify cell culture samples and optimize key parameters before starting a full length, multi-day assay.
InCellis mitosis process video
The video above is an InCellis timelapse of 786-0 cells which stably express protein H2B-RFP (histone 2B–red fluorescent protein). Different steps of the mitosis process can be visualised. These images have been provided by Nicolas Dorvault, INSERM U981, Institut Gustave Roussy, Villejuif, France.
