BioLab at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) and BioTek Instruments Inc., will be co-hosting a workshop on “BioTek’s Cytation Multi-Mode Cell Imager: Practical Applications for Imaging and Quantification of Cell-Based Assays”on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. at OICR.

 

Cell-based assays are essential in vitro models for viewing, imaging, and quantification in drug discovery, tissue engineering, toxicology, cancer- and basic biology research.

BioLab at OICR in collaboration with BioTek Instruments is organizing a free workshop for introduction and training on Cytation imager and its use for a wide range of cell-based assays applications, such as wound healing, proliferation, cytotoxicity, viability, chemotaxis, cell differentiation and more.

 

The event includes 1-hr lecture (open to all) followed by three 60 min hands-on instrument sessions on a) wound healing (scratch), b) cytotoxicity and c) proliferation assays (max 14 people).

Demo instruments, including Cytation 3-, Cytation 5-, and Lionheart FX imagers, AutoScratch Maker Tool and Gen5 analysis software will be provided for training and experimentation during the workshop (September, 18-20).
