Application example: Cultivated cells
Automated batch measurement
Measurement of transfection efficiency of cultivated cells
Transfection is a process of introducing nucleic acids into animal cells. It is used to make cells introduce specific genes to express a protein of interest.
Objective lens: CFI Plan Fluor DL 10x
Counting cells with phase contrast
Counting expression events (fluorescent points) using cells as mask areas
Once you have the BZ-X:
It is possible to obtain phase contrast and fluorescence overlay images.
Even from a phase contrast image, our original measurement algorithm allows the outlines of cells to be extracted accurately.
Hybrid Cell Count can be used to extract the fluorescent protein contained in the cells and count them by using cells as mask areas.
