Phasefocus Livecyte imaging and cell analysis system

Wednesday, 01 August, 2018 | Supplied by: ATA Scientific Pty Ltd


The Livecyte imaging and cell analysis system from Phasefocus is a new modality that employs Ptychographic Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI). This technology leverages phase shift information to generate high-contrast cell images under low levels of light intensity, allowing individual cells to be identified and tracked for prolonged periods without the need for perturbing labels. This ability to image under a more natural environment with reduced risk of phototoxicity not only supports the use of sensitive cell types such as primary and stem cells, but also enables viable cells to be recovered for subsequent analysis.

The live cell imaging system is non-invasive, easy to use and label- and artefact-free. It has low phototoxicity, making it suitable for imaging sensitive precious primary cells.

Continuous field of view with no loss of resolution enables highly motile cells to be tracked during long time-lapse imaging. Automated tracking software meanwhile monitors changes in individual cells through multiple cell divisions, eliminating the need for manual processing.

Livecyte represents a rapid means of gaining deeper insights into biological processes, associated with a wide range of disease conditions with positive implications for drug discovery and development of personalised medicine.

Further product information will be presented at the free seminar ‘The Challenges of Live Cell Imaging’, to be held from 6–10 August in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. To register, visit
