Simplify Phenotypic Characterisation of Live Cell Populations
Phasefocus LivecyteTM uses patented label-free Quantative Phase Imaging technology and state-of-the-art single-cell tracking algorithms to automatically characterise cell growth, morphology and motility of populations of cells in a 96-well plate assay format.
Livecyte's patented technology uses a quantitative phase imaging (QPI) technique known as Ptychography. Phasefocus was awarded a Microscope Today Innovation Award in 2013 for the technology, and won a second award in 2017 for Livecyte itself.
In 2018, researchers from Cornell University set the Guinness World Record for the highest resolution microscope using Ptychography on an Electron Microscope.
I have not seen such a rapid uptake of a totally new technology in the facility before. The assays available are versatile and the Phasefocus team support is second to none.
