  • Feature Application: Characterizing cell metabolism

    This Feature Application highlights the huge potential of Nanolive cell imaging for metabolic studies. We begin by proving that mitochondria and LDs have specific RI signals that allow them to be identified and mapped, in 3D (case study 1). We show that it is possible to image fission-fusion dynamics in mitochondria (case study 2), induce and detect mitochondrial dysfunction (case study 3) and then restore mitochondrial function by the addition of a specific drug (case study 4). Finally, we show that it is possible to quantify LD dynamics in unperturbed (case study 5) and drug-perturbed conditions (case study 6).

  • Feature Application: Characterising cancer cells and their interactions with immune cells

    In this application note, we begin by examining the interactions between t-cells, dendritic cells, and macrophages (case study 1). We then image t-cells responses to cancer cells (case study 2) and the interactions that occur between t-cells and macrophages (case study 3). We show Nanolive imaging can be used to monitor the response of cancer cells to promising antibody drug conjugate (ADCs) products (case study 4) and novel bispecific antibodies (case studies 5 and 6). Finally, we finish with an example of a drug screen where we describe the phenotypic response of living cells to various kinase inhibitors that have shown promise as anti-cancer treatments (case study 7).
