Plate readers first became available about 30 years ago and have become the workhorses of research laboratories performing biochemical and cell-based assays.
One of the newest features that has become available on multimode plate readers alongside the traditional modes such as luminescence, fluorescence and absorbance is imaging technology – the ability to generate one or more images per well of a 96- or 384-well microplate. Imaging expands the possibilities on a plate reader to ensuring assay quality and running phenotypic cell-based assays, including cell health/toxicity applications, transfection analysis, cell migration, viral infection and proliferation assays.
In this webinar, we will describe how cellular applications can benefit from fast, image-based cytometry.

You will learn:
- Why cellular applications benefit from image-based cytometry
- How image-based cytometry improves your cell-based assay data and leads to more reliable results
- How combining imaging with other readout modes enables non-invasive monitoring of cytotoxicity parallel to the functional assay.
- How using imaging significantly reduces effort, cost and time when you have to optimize cell assay conditions, such as for transfection assays
