Visualizing astroglial motility in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease using live-cell imaging [Interview with Dr. Lusine Danielyan]

A recent study by Drews et al. (2021) focuses on examining broad neuroprotective qualities of losartan. The CytoSMART Lux3 FL fluorescence live-cell imager was used to monitor the motility of Aβ-affected astrocytes. To learn more about the use of the CytoSMART devices in life sciences, we asked Dr. Lusine Danielyan a few questions about her experience with using the Lux3 FL for live-cell imaging.

Live-cell imaging in education [Interview Q&A]

Avans University is one of the biggest universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands. One of the programs they offer is Biology and Medical Laboratory Research. Last year, Avans received the CytoSMART Lux2 device to use for education purposes. To get an idea about their experiences with the Lux2 system, we got the opportunity to speak with the program's teachers and students about their use of live-cell imaging in the classroom. We want to give a special thanks to Avans for providing us their insights. Go to the interview here.
