Nanolive’s automated imaging and analysis platform

The CX-A

Nanolive’s imaging and analysis platform – the CX-A – is the only solution in the world to offer automated 3D label-free live cell imaging that is compatible with 96-well plates.

  • Non-invasive autofocus solution: keeps cells in focus for the time of the experiment
  • Integrated image analysis solution with multi-parametric read-out
  • Long-term imaging of living cells with no perturbations and no contamination in physiological conditions thanks to our dedicated incubation solution. More details here.
  • High quality motorized stage with a micron range precision repeatability of motion
  • Stitching feature: allows to analyze highly confluent cell populations containing hundreds of cells while keeping Nanolive’s signature sub-cellular resolution
  • Meaningful correlative imaging: features a fully integrated 3 channel epifluorescence imaging modality

Live T Cell Assay

Label-free AI-assisted segmentation of target cells and T cells in co-culture

The Live T Cell Assay offers a unique opportunity to understand T cell/target cells interactions over time, at both the single-cell and population level. Nanolive’s label-free live cell imaging captures detailed, multiplexed, and texturally rich images of the entire T cell response process: find, bind, stress and kill.

Only Nanolive’s rich images can achieve a clear segmentation of T cells and their targets without using any destructive labels.

The combination of holography and rotational scanning makes Nanolive imaging a revolutionary technology

Nanolive’s technology is unique because it works label-free and reports the 3D refractive index distribution of the cell. The extremely low light power that generates the holograms allows for a total absence of phototoxicity which leads to excellent time resolution.
