CELLnTEC provides a range of standard and fluorescent microscopy techniques
CELLnTEC is continually striving to combine the most scientifically advanced in vitro models with modern analytical methods to deliver the most detailed and innovative insights possible. The list of methods we routinely use is constantly being expanded, and includes the following approaches:
We continue to innovate as rapidly as possible in the field of cell culture methods. In addition to standard 2D approaches for undifferentiated progenitor cells and differentiated cells, we also offer stratified 3D cultures (e.g. epidermis, airway, bladder), 3D co-cultures (e.g. keratinocytes / fibroblasts, keratinocytes / melanocytes), or 3D sphere cultures (e.g. prostaspheres for culture of prostate progenitor cells). To this range of approaches, we are continue to develop areas such as novel coatings and media for embryonic stem cells, all with the same central goal of improving the in vitro micro-environment to more accurately mimic the in vivo situation.
In house we regularly perform a wide range of cell biology methods, including protein blotting, immunofluroescence, confocal microscopy and flow cytometry. These methods are supported by a range of standard and fluorescent microscopy techniques.
Let us propose testing procedures ideally suited to your needs, based on our extensive experience with in vitro testing methods.
Our scientists routinely perform many molecular services, including small sample RNA isolation, qRT-PCR, nucleotide blotting and micro arrays.
Our experienced staff bring many years of experience, and can advise on the best approaches to your specific needs. We can offer both paraffin and OCT-based approaches, optimized processing and embedding, a wide range of direct and immuno-staining alternatives, plus access to our extensive list of tested antibodies and further processing protocols.
Low and High Throughput
Depending on the demands of the project, we have the option of performing low-throughput approaches for more in depth analysis of cells and 3D models, or alternatively to use more high throughput 96-well formats with automatic plate readers to enable broader screens and higher replication.
