Review date: 09 Oct 2014

Application Area: Confocal microscopy
CyGEL

"This is wonderful product to immobilize cells. It can be used also for immobilization of cells after cell sorting. Just sort cells on cool microscope slides and your cells will be immobilized during transport to confocal microscopy (as the slides will heat to room temperature). Just a very easy-to-use tool."

Description

 

A thermoreversible gel compatible with LIVE cells.

It can be used to immobilise non-adherent cells and beads by simple warming, and conversely allowing their recovery by simple cooling.

CyGEL™ is unusual in that it is a liquid when cold and a gel when warmed!

What are the key benefits?
CyGEL™ has many applications in imaging, flow cytometry and cell-based screening. It is compatible with LIVE cells, usefully allowing their immobilisation for analysis and subsequent release for ongoing experimentation.

Key benefits include:-

  • optically clear with low autofluorescence
  • controllable and rapid transition from liquid to gel
  • convenient immobilisation of non-adherent cells and beads
  • compatible with GFP and "in gel" fluorescent probes including DRAQ5™

Advantages:

  • allows rapid preparation of cells for gel mounting
  • permits long term analysis of non-adherent cells
  • acts as a support matrix
  • permits sterile, low temperature recovery of cells from gel
  • multiple assay formats and applications including apoptosis detection
