5 Special Considerations for Live Cell Imaging

Live cell imaging is advantageous for research were you may be worried about artifacts of fixation or when you want to measure a phenomenon over time. Live cell imaging is more difficult to achieve than fixed samples because we need to keep the cells live AND happy along with obtaining the images we need. We can reduce artifacts by keeping the cells in a favorable environment and minimizing external stressors. Here are 5 points to keep in mind when setting up your live cell imaging experiment.

3 Ways To Measure Cell Death With Flow Cytometry

Cell death is a natural part of the lifecycle of a cell. In cases of development, it is critical for the shaping of fingers during human development. The processes of ordered cell death, or Apoptosis, are so important that in 2002, Sidney Brenner, Robert Horvitz, and John Sulston received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for their work on understanding this process. There are many different ways to measure cell death and flow cytometry is an ideal tool for this technique. Whether you are just assessing the viability of your cells or you are interested in the exact stage of cell death your sample is in, there are a variety of ways that you can measure cell death. Learn 3 ways you can use flow cytometry to measure cell death.
