Ions can travel through the membrane using ion channels. Their activity is measured with fluorescent assays and a BMG LABTECH microplate reader.
Cells not only receive extracellular cues, they also translate them into intracellular reactions. Extracellular signaling molecules comprise growth factors, hormones, ions, neurotransmitters, or cytokines.
Cellular reaction time covers from a few seconds to several hours. Accordingly, responses must either be triggered and measured instantly, or they need to be observed in living cells over a longer period of time. BMG LABTECH microplate readers provide injectors and a high sampling rate if fast reactions need to be captured. Further, the Atmospheric Control Unit regulates CO2 and O2 levels inside the reading chamber to provide a feel-good atmosphere for long-term cell experiments.
Signaling events rarely come alone, they take place simultaneously or in concert. In order to clearly characterize signaling events, BMG LABTECH devices offer the possibility of reading several assays in just one well.
