Cell health encompasses many aspects of cellular function, including growth, proliferation, viability, apoptosis, and cytotoxicity. In routine cell culture, cell proliferation and viability may be measured to ensure that cells are performing within normal parameters. For drug screening, cell viability and cytotoxicity assays are used to determine the number of live or dead cells in response to experimental treatment.
Molecular Devices provides technologies that enable researches to conduct advanced, detailed cellular analyses. Microplate readers analyze all cells in each well of a microplate for higher throughput, while high-content analysis (HCA) systems provide more detailed information at the cellular and subcellular levels.
