ROYSTON, England, Nov. 9, 2010 — TTP LabTech Ltd. has announced a high-throughput solution for speeding up chemotaxis research using the Acumen eX3 microplate cytometer and the iuvo chemotaxis assay plate from BellBrook Labs. Using this system, approximately fourfold time savings were achieved compared to a similar method using automated microscopy and off-line data processing.

The Acumen eX3 is a laser scanning microplate cytometer for the analysis of fluorescence in cell-based assays. In addition to offering enhanced multiplexing functionality, Acumen eX3 has a wide field of view that enables whole-well and microchannel scanning. The iuvo chemotaxis assay plate is a high-content, automation friendly microconduit array plate that facilitates horizontal chemotaxis in the presence of a defined gradient. The combination of Acumen eX3 with the iuvo microchannels results in a rapid and robust approach to neutrophil chemotaxis studies.

This development offers scientists another assay that can be quickly and easily used as part of a primary screening oncology campaign.

This has proved a successful combination of products for customers involved with chemotaxis as the Acumen eX3 and iuvo plates offer an efficient alternative to the more traditional microscopy setup requiring further off-line analysis. Whole-well scanning enables multiple cell movements to be captured and analyzed within any one well.

GLOSSARY
multiplexing
The combination of two or more signals for transmission along a single wire, path or carrier. In most optical communication systems this is referred to as wavelength division multiplexing, in which the combination of different signals for transmission are imbedded in multiple wavelengths over a single optical channel. The optical channel is a fiber optic cable or any other standard optical waveguide.
