The high-throughput Cytonote Cell counter, released in July 2017 by Iprasense, lets labs monitor up to 96 cell cultures in parallel and in real time. Like the company’s previous-generation cell counter, the new product delivers statistics on cell viability and requires no specific sample preparation. The product is the third in Iprasense’s lineup to leverage a lensless imaging technology developed at Leti that increases the visual field tenfold as compared to a traditional microscope.
Samples are placed on a 96-well plate, allowing labs to test the effects of up to 96 substances on the same cell culture, making the product ideal for antibiotic sensitivity tests, high-throughput cellular screening for drug discovery, or to monitor a therapy’s efficacy.
