Photonic fingerprinting® for label-free and gentle cell analysis
CellTool GmbH has specialized in label-free and non-invasive cell analysis based on Raman spectroscopy. CellTool develops innovative microscope systems that enable fast and non-invasive analysis of single cells or entire tissue – without stains, antibodies, biochemical markers, fluorescent labels or magnetic beads.
CellTool’s BioRam® system is a highly sensitive, confocal Raman-Trapping-Microscope optimized for biomedical use. With BioRam®, Raman spectroscopy is as easy as light microscopy. The inverse microscope is the ideal platform for cell biological analyses and provides the necessary prerequisite for direct measurements of cell cultures, tissues or fluids.
Raman spectroscopy applications are very versatile. Whenever only small sample amounts are available or problems arise with antibody-based markers, Raman spectroscopy is the tool-of-choice as it enables non-invasive analysis under physiological conditions.
With this, analyzed cells remain vital and intact for further cultivation and downstream analyses. Living or fixed cells in culture or cells from tissue sections can be analyzed as well as cells in 3D cell cultures and scaffolds up to a depth of at least 300 µm.
In addition, also solid material and fluids, like vaccines or cell supernatants, can also be measured.
