High-Throughput Live-Cell Imaging Assays:
Designing Well-Plate Microfluidics for Applications in Microbiology and Cell Adhesion

 

Life science research and drug discovery typically favor in vitro assays for cost-efficient screening and in vivo assays for data with higher physiological context. Recent innovations in live-cell imaging have begun to close this gap by offering the convenience, control, and throughput of well-plate based assays that approach the clinical relevance of an animal model.

Fluxion Biosciences developed its well-plate microfluidics technology to emulate in vivo conditions in a well-plate assay format. The company’s BioFlux System incorporates this technology to offer live-cell imaging assays with controllable shear flow.
