IDP provides integrated and versatile in vitro testing services. These services are customizable to meet the individual needs of research projects. Cell analysis services which are provided include cytotoxicity, clonogenicity, molecular endpoints, High Content Screening (HCS) image acquisition and analysis platform for cell based assays (INCELL), medium through-put analysis against multiple cell lines and drug combination assessments.
A clonogenicity assay is a soft agar technique for studying the effectiveness of novel agents on the survival and proliferation of cells. It is frequently used in cancer research to determine the effect of drugs or radiation on proliferating tumor cells. It can also be used to sort mixed cell populations.
Including MTT, MTS, PrestoBlue Cytotoxicity testing using cell cultures offers a rapid readout of the potential of novel compound to have on anti-cancer activity. These tests use mitochondrial activity or DNA content as readout of activity and may be correlated to percent cell kill or growth inhibition.
High Content Analysis (IN Cell Analyzer)
Image acquisition and analysis platform for cell-based assays for research and drug discovery. This technology allows you to simultaneously analyze morphological parameters, as well as multiple markers within the same cell. Common uses for this instrument in the lab include: live/dead cell analysis in drug screening of novel drugs or drug combinations/synergy assays and includes images of cells for your publishing needs.
InCucyte Live Cell Analysis
The Incucyte acquires and analyzes images over time and used for analysis of migration, invasion and immune cell killing.
