Advancing Together: Accelerating Discovery through Live Cell Analysis with Agilent, BioTek, and ACEA Biosciences

The rapid development of immuno-oncology therapies has transformed the cancer treatment landscape. Discovering safe, potent, and persistent immune cell products requires a complete understanding of cancer biology and immune cell properties such as activation, cell fate, cytotoxic killing, immunomodulation, and memory. With our real-time live cell analysis tools, gain deeper insights into immune cell function and its response to the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment.

In addition, our understanding of cancer biology and the development of new drugs is steadily improving through the use of more complex in vitro cancer models that enhance the physiological relevance of assay data. 3D cell culture technologies, particularly those that form spheroid and organoid models, are at the forefront of these measures. Long-term live cell imaging is particularly useful in quantifying drug effects on these complex models.

This event features presentations by leading scientists from several notable institutions. Agilent, and the newest members of the Agilent family, BioTek and ACEA, showcase their latest innovations in cell analysis, including product launches, software demos, and scientific posters.
