Research and Markets: The Untapped Potential in Live Cell Imaging - Overview of the Technologies

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zvqk78/the_untapped) has announced the addition of the "The Untapped Potential in Live Cell Imaging - Technical Insights" report to their offering.

This research service is aimed at delivering an overview of the technologies for live cell imaging. Recent developments and trends in the industry have also been captured in this research service. This study provides snapshot of the technologies for live cell imaging, highlights of some of the key innovations in live cell imaging platforms and of some recent developments in in vitro / in vivo live cell imaging across different disease segments, key technical and business challenges for live cell imaging, key technical and business drivers that are fuelling success in this market, potential areas of application of live cell imaging, focusing on disease areas in which live cell imaging can find increased application and is primed for growth.

An in-depth understanding of complex cellular dynamics that includes processes such as cell migration, morphological changes of cells, organs or whole animals, and physiological events in living specimens in real time constitutes an essential stage in the exploration of bological processes. Live cell imaging allows investigation into the process dynamics of living cells in real time by providing spatial and temporal information about dynamic events in single cells in situ cellular networks and in vivo whole organisms.


Furthermore, in recent years, live cell imaging has been enriched by advances in electronics, optics, and molecular biology, making this technology more accessible for life scientists. In course of the past decade, with the advent of omics technologies on one hand, and nanotechnologies on the other, commercially available lab-on-a-chip microfluidics systems have evolved to offer novel solutions for the analysis of cells, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA), and proteins. The combination of these systems with microscopic imaging platforms to study biological material or to view cell morphology has been successful. Indeed, driven by the latest innovations in omics-based technologies and personalized medicine approaches, these platforms are beginning to be adopted into mainstream medicine, leading to new opportunities in life sciences research and clinical applications.
