Can your University use live cell imaging in classrooms? - Part 1 - Lux2 for educational purposes

Live-cell imaging is the study of living cells using time-lapse microscopy. It is a technology that could contribute to a better understanding of biological function through the study of dynamic cellular processes. However, besides the contribution to research, it could also pay a significant contribution to the way certain educational programs are currently organized.

Seeing is believing: Label-free time-lapse microscopy for quantifying cell proliferation

Cell proliferation assays are used in a wide variety of contexts. For example, proliferation can be used to gauge the health of new transgenic cell lines or to evaluate the success of tissue regeneration experiments. Quantitative cell proliferation assays are also essential for evaluating the dose-response of new pharmaceutical agents, such as in the context of anti-cancer drug development.

Optical Microscopy vs. Digital Microscopy: For cell cultures studies

A variation of the optical microscope is the digital microscope. These microscopes use a digital camera instead of eyepieces. Images are seen in real-time on a computer screen. The invention of the USB port in the 1990s has made available a wide variety of USB digital microscopes to suit every need.
