Application Spotlight

NEW Improved cell counting method using transmitted light
Hematoxylin is a commonly used dye for staining protocols in histology. It reacts like a basic dye with a purplish-blue color and stains acidic or basophilic structures, including the cell nucleus and organelles that contain RNA. See how you can increase the contrast in transmitted light images to improve cell counting for cell lines with relatively flat morphology or indistinguishable intercellular space.

NEW Validating CRISPR/Cas9 Genomic Editing Experiments
The CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system is a popular tool for studying gene function, and validating it is necessary to ensure that genes of interest are successfully knocked down or knocked out. See how the SpectraMax® i3x microplate reader and the ImageXpress® Micro Confocal imaging system can be utilized in gene editing experiments by using CRISPR/Cas9 to knock down autophagy-related protein 5 (ATG5) in HEK293 cells.
