Nanolive SA, a Swiss company, has announced the market launch of the CX-A, the first microscope to combine the power of non-invasive, 3D Nanolive imaging with the throughput of automation.
“Every new discovery starts with an unprecedented observation. We have created a unique tool to seamlessly follow cells from the macro level of cell populations, down to their individual organelle ecosystem” says Dr. Sebastien Equis, Nanolive’s co-founder and CTO.
The CX-A extends the exploration of living cells – from single cells to cell populations – without compromising on the highest precision and resolution proper to all Nanolive products. It enables scientists to investigate macro cellular dynamics like cell health, proliferation, movement and function as well as micro organelle dynamics and interactions e.g. mitochondrial network characterization.
Nanolive’s CX-A is designed to work with 96 well plates to multiply and parallelize experimental conditions, hence, bringing undoubtable significance to each experiment and delivering solid biological insights to researchers. Furthermore, the system is equipped with multiple imaging modalities to correlate and compare physical and chemical information at each time-point. In order to truly create an immersive and holistic experience of novel cell observation, it delivers 3D data sets for every single image at every single moment.
According to the company, Nanolive’s CX-A automates data acquisition, thus delivering new insights and understanding into biological processes. Nanolive’s completely redesigned intuitive user-interface enables first-time users to set-up experiments in just a few minutes and walk away, while the CX-A automatically collects the images. In addition to improving data significance, multiple imaging regimens can be programmed within the same plate allowing users to run different applications in parallel. A realtime preview allows the user to navigate through the data at any time while offering an overview of the experimental protocol. The 3D dataset output can then be exported with just a few clicks to multiple data formats for analysis.
