Cellular Imaging and Analysis Roundtable

Past, Present, and Future of Enabling Technology in Academia and Industry

  • GEN  Which applications are currently utilizing live-cell imaging more than others? 

    Evans: Developmental areas and neurobiology are prevalent in both academia and industry, especially for 3-D live cells.

    Lam: Cell-cycle measurement and cell division are two applications that I believe are using live cells successfully at this time. Other basic research areas that have traditionally used live cells are certain developmental biology applications.

    von Leoprechting: The use of live-cell imaging in infectious diseases and cancer research is growing fast. Specifically, the use of live-cell imaging in viral infection and invasion models or cancer metastasis experiments is increasing in importance.
