Building Critical Mass in Cell Analysis
Agilent entered the cell analysis market in 2015 with the acquisition of Seahorse Bioscience, a leader in providing specialized instruments and live-cell, kinetic assays. Agilent Seahorse XF technology was a leap in the evolution of cellular metabolism analysis allowing researchers to investigate metabolism in live cells. In January 2018 Agilent broadened its portfolio of cell analysis solutions through the acquisition of Luxcel Biosciences. Luxcel's assays use soluble sensors to analyze metabolism, making them a perfect complement to Agilent's Seahorse XF technology, providing researchers with more options to analyze metabolism.
Founded in 2002, ACEA is a pioneer in the development and commercialization of high performance cell analysis platforms for life science research. ACEA's xCELLigence® Real-Time Cell Analysis instruments and NovoCyte® flow cytometers are used in pre-clinical drug discovery and development, toxicology, safety pharmacology, and basic academic research. More than 2,500 instruments have been placed globally and have been used in more than 1,800 peer-reviewed publications. For more information visit https://www.aceabio.com/.
