Read why our plate readers provide the perfect platform for measuring cellular metabolism.
Cell-based studies provide information about basic cellular processes including cell division, cell energy balance, control mechanisms, cell death regulation, differentiation, or pathology. Cell-based assays go beyond basic cellular research and are replacing animal experiments in carrying out viability and toxicity assays to identify toxic substances in vitro. BMG LABTECH’s CLARIOstar Plus with Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) offers the control needed for cell viability assays, regulating temperature, CO2 and O2 levels to ensure cells are maintained in an appropriate environment. In addition, cell cultures have become important production organisms for medicines, including insulin and monoclonal antibodies produced as therapeutics.
