Chip-Man, ArcDia to Develop Fluorescence-Detection Modules for Chip-Man s Cell-IQ Tool

NEW YORK, May 18 (GenomeWeb News) - Chip-Man Technologies and ArcDia today said they plan to develop new fluorescence-detection modules that will be integrated with Chip-Man's Cell-IQ live cell-culturing and -analysis system.


The new modules will enable researchers to simultaneously measure and analyze cell events using both phase contrast and living dyes within the same culture under incubation.


The addition of a fluorescence detection module will enable the Cell IQ to identify specific siRNA and cDNA transcripts, the companies said. "This will allow them to be closely monitored and the resulting morphological changes recorded within the population. Thus the measurement of the true rate of cellular stimulation to specific drugs will be possible."


Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
