The zenCELL owl provides fast, accurate and reliable information about the current condition of the observed cell culture by utilizing continual non-invasive long-term analysis. Data about the current cell count and confluence are generated in a fully-automated, objective and reproducible way not requiring any actions on behalf of the user for quality analysis (Figure 7). Besides needing less effort, it also enables users to get more objective and significant information about the status of confluence. Evaluating the current condition of cell cultures is easily possible even online from outside the lab.
Possible uses of the zenCELL owl:
• Documentation and analysis of cell growth
• Determining cell confluence
• Analysing effects of components on cell cultures (cytotoxicity)
• Observation of stem cells
• Migration assays
