Across a broad array of applications, virology assays typically monitor changes in the infected host cell over time. The traditional methods for quantifying these virus-induced cytopathic effects are often labor intensive and only yield endpoint data.
Using gold-electrode biosensors and combined imaging, the xCELLigence family of instruments continuously and non-invasively monitor virus-induced changes in host cell number, size, attachment strength, and barrier function. This composite readout is an exceptionally sensitive means of tracking the entire life cycle of a virus and interrogating virus-host interactions.
