Application Note: Kinetic proliferation assay using label-free cell counting
29 August 2019

Characterizing cell proliferation is a crucial aspect of biological research and therapeutic drug development. Most current cell proliferation assays rely on indirect biochemical metrics that are limited by artifacts or imaging-based end point measures. In this application note, BioTek describes a continuous live-cell assay for determining cell proliferation profiles using the BioSpa™ 8 Automated Incubator and Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader with the High Contrast Brightfield kit. This fully automated method enables accurate quantitative and phenotypic long-term analysis of cell growth using label-free direct cell counting.
