BioTek’s Application Starter kits contain everything you’ll need to implement the latest assays for a particular application, quickly and with minimal training. Kits contain hardware, software, consumables and reagents all in a convenient kit.
The ability to accurately determine cell number is an important aspect of a broad range of applications, including setting up and optimizing cell-based assays, normalizing data across samples, and conducting cell proliferation assays.
The Agilent BioTek Lionheart FX automated microscope and Agilent BioTek Cytation cell imaging multi-mode readers utilize label-free and fluorescence imaging modes, along with powerful Agilent BioTek Gen5 image analysis tools, to deliver efficient and effective automated cell counting.
Automated imaging tools can provide valuable information for improving routine cell culturing techniques and increasing the effectiveness and reproducibility of downstream cell-based assays. Conventional methods for evaluating cell culturing techniques and assay design consist of manual inspection of a small subset of the cell population at random locations and time points.
Cell health and viability measurements provide essential insight into a broad range of biological processes and treatment responses. Diverse assay formats and reagents have been developed that measure specific aspects of cell viability corresponding to particular cellular response pathways and mechanisms of injury.
Cellular metabolism comprises a number of biochemical reactions that occur in concert within the cells of living organisms. These orchestrated reactions, better described as metabolic pathways allow organisms to function and respond to environmental changes. Agilent cell metabolism assays detect discrete changes in cell bioenergetics in real time, providing a window into the critical functions that provide ATP, the energy that cells need for activation, signaling, proliferation, and biosynthesis.
Cell migration and invasion are live cell kinetic assays useful in oncology research. The principle difference between migration and invasion is that migration refers to normal cell movement; whereas invasion describes cells actively invading surrounding tissue. It can do this under the influence of a chemoattractant gradient and secretion of proteases. There are numerous methods for performing these assays including scratch assays performed on a monolayer of cells adhered to plasticware (microplates or culture inserts) or using 3D cell culture models.
Bacterial endotoxins are lipopolysaccharides (LPS) generally found in the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria, such as E.coli, and are widely present in our environment. Because of the pyrogenic nature of endotoxins, with human effects from fever to hemorrhagic stroke, FDA regulations require that raw materials (e.g. water) used in parenteral drugs be tested for endotoxin levels.
