Live Cell Research Cellgraph
AB-3000B Cellgraph

Bioluminescnece imaging system for living cell and tissues
  Cellgraph is an imaging system to detect low-level light emission in a single living cell by using a highly sensitive EM-CCD camera.

AB-3000B Cellgraph

AB-3000B Cellgraph

Purpose and Application
  • Real time reporter gene assay
  •   Transcriptional factor activity, Clock gene (chronopharmacology). Gene expression (Transfection,RNAi,etc)
  • Analysis of cell responses
  •   Drug response(Anti-cancer drug,DDS,etc),Stress response (Hormone,Inflammation,Anti-Oxidant), Cytotoxichology
  • Analysis of signal pathway
  • Signal cascade (Calcium), Apoptosis,etc
  • Acquire images of culturing cells or tissue samples on a 35 mm dish in the living state.
  • Provide a CO2 incubator equivalent atmosphere by controlling the temperature, CO2 gas concentration and humidifying.
  • Highly sensitive and accurate detection of faint bioluminescence with an EM-CCD camera.
  • Isolates and captures multicolor faint bioluminescence.
  • Easy operation via a user-friendly interface.
  • Full control from a PC with dedicated software.
  • Completely lightproof,compact design.
