For large population, prolonged time lapse single cell imaging, it is perfect.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Scratch wound assays, co-culture studies, toxicity assays and more on the core facility

"As a core facility instrument, it is being used nearly non-stop by many different groups. The instrument is saturated and giving great reproducible, novel and exciting results."

LiveCyte: A fantastic imaging platform supported by superb customer service.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Pharmacology, Cell Physiology, Angiogenesis

"It has been delight working alongside the PhaseFocus team, who are all very dedicated and knowledgeable. From the pre-purchase phase, when they were genuinely interested in understanding our requirements in assessing complex events like tube formation (angiogenesis) in real time. We have since worked closely together on the development of this and other assays, and they have gone above and beyond to address some complicated issues that are allowing us to get some exquisite and enlightening results."

The Livecyte is excellent for accessing cell behavior analysis and quantification
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Endothelial cell biology and angiogenesis applied to drug discovery

"We have been working with the Livecyte system for the past 10 months in order to access endothelial cell survival, proliferation and angiogenesis. The cells we use as a model are really sensible to fluorescent labeling, and we had different outcomes when the assays were performed with labeled cells. So the fact that we have high quality image and processing without the need of cell labeling and in a high content way it is a great advantage of the system for us. In the beginning we had problems related to the stability of the software which have been sorted out by the company and with each improvement of the software we are experiencing fewer and fewer issues. Each and every time we've contacted the company due to these issues or other matters related to the system, we had support readily and promptly."

Outstanding system, amazing outputs and first-class customer support.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell cytometry, wound healing

"We have been using the LiveCyte system for around 7 months now and I'm continually impressed by the quality of data we can generate. There is nothing out there that can do what the LiveCyte does. Label-free cell imaging, simultaneous segmentation and tracking of many hundreds of cells, powerful analysis and multi-parameter gating of cell behavior. The system is simple to use and you can easily generate high quality data with little training. For the super-user there are huge array of analysis possibilities that allow you to ask questions that no other system can answer."

The fastest uptake of new technology I've seen in the facility
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:live cell imaging

"The Phasefocus LiveCyte was brought into our multi-user microscopy facility in November 2017. I have not seen such a rapid uptake of a totally new technology in the facility before. The LiveCyte is extremely easy to use, the analysis wizard is very intuitive and results generated have been fantastic. the assays available are versatile and the Phasefocus team support is second to none. We are the first to bring this instrument to Australia. This could have been a risk, as the Phasefocus base is so far from us, but we have not suffered in the least, with support being prompt and effective. The Phasefocus team is also very responsive in designing new assays for us, which is invaluable in a research environment. I would strongly recommend this instrument to anyone wishing to do label-free live cell imaging."

Livecyte® is a unique quantitative label free cell analysis system which delivers continuous tracking and analysis of individual cells within large populations, enabling users to gain a more realistic and comprehensive understanding of cell behaviour.

Unlike traditional phase contrast imaging techniques, where images can be corrupted by optical artefacts, Livecyte utilises ptychography, a QPI (Quantitative Phase Imaging) technique, to generate high contrast, information rich images. This innovative new technology permits the quantitative measurement of phenotypic characteristics and dynamic activity for prolonged periods, permitting multiple cell divisions to be monitored.

Livecyte generates a continuous large field of view independent of imaging objective, eliminating the need for image “stitching”.  As a result, morphological parameters can be reliably determined providing precise and quantifiable metrics. Furthermore a minimal number of cells move beyond the FOV during imaging, allowing even highly motile cells to be accurately tracked over long periods of time.

The system’s low powered laser illumination reduces the risk of phototoxicity and/or photo-induced behaviour, ensuring cells remain healthy and viable, making it compatible with sensitive cell types, including primary and stem cells.

This ability to analyse cells in a more natural environment provides reassurance that differences in the behaviour of cell populations are genuine rather than a consequence of the imaging technique. validating its suitability for a wide range of applications.

Livecyte also supports widefield fluorescence, permitting labelled and non-labelled protocols to be combined. Supplementing label free images with periodic tracking of fluorescently labelled components keeps phototoxicity to a minimum, allowing additional information to be extracted and results correlated for confident data analysis.

A further strength of the system lies in its capacity to segment individual cells within complex heterogenous cell populations, enabling multiple parameters to be extracted from a single experiment.

The system comes complete with an extensive array of analysis tools, incorporating both common predefined parameters and customisable options, providing the versatility to tailor assays as required.  With its simple, intuitive workflows and interactive graphical tools, users can rapidly design their experiment, setup their acquisition parameters and analyse their data, all with minimal training.

Livecyte includes 12TB data storage for simple straightforward data handling, with data exported as graphs, tables images or video. In addition, design, set up and data analysis can all be completed remotely, providing a flexible and efficient resource for multi-user sites.

This comprehensive system has been specifically designed to create an optimal environment for long term live cell assays, heralding a new era in quantitative phase imaging and providing a gateway to the better understanding of cellular processes .

Common applications include but not limited to:

  • Cell migration
  • Mitotic time & cell division
  • Wound healing
  • Angiogenesis
  • Apoptosis
  • Cell proliferation
  • Cytotoxicity & dose response
