A push-button, automated solution for profiling cell health and death

LIVE Cell Death Assay

The LIVE Cell Death Assay (LCDA) provides first-in-class cytotoxicity analysis of dynamic label-free live cell data. Developed using state-of-the-art machine learning, the LCDA has been trained to discriminate not only living cells from dead cells, but also apoptosis from necrosis.

The LCDA has been created to be as user-friendly as possible: a single click of a button is required to launch the analysis. It delivers 13 viability and death-related metrics.

Continuous label-free live cell imaging is changing the paradigm for studying the mode of action of drugs. With the LIVE Cell Death Assay, the health of each single cell is determined at every single timepoint, ensuring temporal dynamics are quantified with the highest precision.

Differentiating cell health based on morphology

The assay recognizes whether cells are alive, apoptotic, or necrotic. When image acquisition is complete, a single click of a button is required to launch the analysis, which proceeds automatically without any user interaction.

Complete quantitative metrics

The LIVE Cell death assay generates 13 novel metrics cover all aspects of cell health and death. Furthermore, the standard package metrics are included for each population (living, dead, apoptotic, necrotic).
