Company launches new IncuCyte Zoom™ and associated CellPlayer™ assay reagents.

Essen BioScience Inc. has announced the launch of its new live cell imaging system, IncuCyte ZOOM™, as well as an expanded line of novel CellPlayer™ reagents specifically developed by Essen for use on the platform.

The IncuCyte ZOOM™ is the 2nd generation live-cell imaging platform offered by Essen.

A unique aspect of the IncuCyte technology is that the system acquires images automatically from within the user’s cell culture incubator, enabling users to gather biological image data around-the-clock without removing the cells from their physiological environment.

The IncuCyte is also equipped with integrated software providing full quantification of the real-time biological processes under observation.

New features on the ZOOM include multi-fluorescent colors, support of a broader range of magnifications, enhanced phase contrast processing tools and more speed.

The new CellPlayer™ reagents include targeted fluorescent probes and fully validated GFP/RFP nuclear labeled stable cell lines.

These reagents are non-perturbing to cell health and superior to traditional organic dye labels for long term imaging assays.

Together, the IncuCyte Zoom and suite of CellPlayer™ reagents and assays provide a fully integrated solution for quantitative long term kinetic biology; an approach we call Live Content Imaging.

“We are very excited about the release of ZOOM and associated CellPlayer™ reagents”, says Kirk Schroeder, President of Essen BioScience.

Schroeder continued, “Drug discovery research is continuing to move to more advanced, mixed culture assay models in order to better predict in vivo biology. These new offerings make it easy to monitor multiple cell types with non-perturbing labels and a full kinetic read-out; a new dimension for in vitro cell biology.”

Tissue Engineers Recruit Cells to Make Their Own Strong Matrix
Extracellular matrix is the material that gives tissues their strength and stretch. It’s been hard to make well in the lab, but a Brown University team reports new success. The key was creating a culture environment that guided cells to make ECM themselves.
Towards Patient-Specific Drug Screening
A new breakthrough by the 3D stem cell printing team at Heriot-Watt could pave the way to individually tailored drug testing regimes, both reducing the need for animal testing and ensuring that patients receive drugs which are most effective for their individual needs.
Artificial Kidney Research Gets A Boost
Development of a surgically implantable, artificial kidney — a promising alternative to kidney transplantation or dialysis for people with end-stage kidney disease — has received a $6 million boost.
