Current methodologies for the detection of inducible Pluripotent Stem (iPS) reprogramming are either disruptive e.g. flow cytometry (FC) or low in throughput e.g. fluorescent microscopy (FM). Using the Celigo S Imaging Cytometer and secondary iPS reprogramming we have developed a methodology that combines the advantages of both flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy. This approach is based on the fluorescent identification of iPS colonies that express the four reprogramming factors, Oct4, Sox2, Klf4 and c-Myc, by expression of mOrange placed after the four factors following ires and the progress of reprogramming using fluorescent detection of the pluripotency reporter Nanog-GFP+ cells within these colonies. This method can be used to not only follow the reprogramming kinetics but could also be used to examine the effect of extrinsic factors, thus, providing a strong tool to investigate molecular mechanisms of reprogramming.
Nexcelom’s Celigo S imaging cytometer has been applied to provide automated, rapid assessment of iPS reprogramming . Using f-theta optics, Celigo provides high quality, whole well images using bright field and/or fluorescent illumination. Automated segmentation and analysis provides quantitative output of iPS reprogramming based on mOrange and GFP fluorescent colony detection.

Immunotherapy on Chip: “Under the Microscope” Drug-induced Modulation of the Immune ResponsePoster
The immune system is a striking example of an integrated information system, engaged in coordinated host-protective activities. Organs-on-chip approach (OOC) models allow the direct simultaneous observation of hundreds of different cells, moving, interacting and responding to signals coming from the microenvironment nearby, that give access to a number of parameters describing the system that must be properly measured and elaborated.READ MORE
