Smart Lipid Droplet Assay LIVE

The first smart digital assay to provide a push button solution

for analyzing lipid droplets dynamics, label-free

High precision segmentation of lipid droplets in cells label-free

Smart Lipid Droplet Assay

The Smart Lipid Droplet Assay segments lipid droplets based on their unique refractive index values for optimal results without the addition of stains or dyes.

It delivers 39 metrics for a complete quantitative analysis of LD morphology, content, and distribution, at the single cell scale and the population level.

In my career, with over 20 years of microscopy experience, I have seen many segmentation tools, but I can tell you this this segmentation analysis provided by Nanolive is the best segmentation I have ever seen.

User-friendly push button assay to analyze lipid droplets dynamics 100% non-invasively

Make phototoxicity and photobleaching a thing of the past: with label-free imaging you can monitor your lipid droplet dynamics under your experimental conditions for as long as you need.

Nanolive has developed a ‘one-click assay’ with no staining or centrifugation required, just a high-quality cell culture plus or minus the treatments of interest. This will allow us to learn orders of magnitude more about cell biology with less effort, less cost and greatly reduced infrastructure requirements relative to our legacy approaches.

Smart Lipid Droplet Assay

The Smart Lipid Droplet Assay has the potential to revolutionize medical research, by providing researchers access to an entire scale of lipid droplet (LD) dynamics that are unattainable using current techniques.

Nanolive imaging is label-free; no phototoxicity is generated and thus, there is no need to compromise between spatial and temporal resolution. The outcome? High content, multiplexed images with unparalleled sub-cellular resolution. Although LDs are easily identifiable by their high refractive index values, quantifying them, is not trivial, particularly if a high number of LDs are present, or they are closely clustered. This is why we have developed the Smart Lipid Droplet Assay LIVE (SLD) the world’s first label-free image analysis solution for segmenting and quantifying LD dynamics.

Nanolive's automated imaging platform

The CX-A

Nanolive’s imaging 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
  • Long-term imaging of living cells with no perturbations and no contamination in physiological conditions
  • 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
