Luxcel Biosciences Welcomes New Opportunites by Joining Agilent Technologies
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 9, 2018 Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it has acquired Luxcel Biosciences, a developer of real-time fluorescence plate-reader based in vitro cell assay kits. This acquisition expands Agilent's cell analysis portfolio with the addition of easy-to-use assay kits that are compatible with industry standard plate-readers. "When Agilent approached us, it was clear to me that we have a shared passion for innovation designed to enable and support customers." Richard Fernandes, CEO Luxcel Biosciences.
Stress Your Cells to See How They Are Really Feeling
Aerobic respiration is central to life. Oxygen consumption measurements are therefore a key parameter across biological research, providing a direct and specific measure of mitochondrial function and aerobic metabolism. While measurement of basal respiration alone is highly informative, it can be blind to underlying metabolic impairments or adaptations that do not reveal themselves under basal conditions. ‘Stressing’ the cells, however, can reveal these alterations allowing the identification of subtle mitochondrial impairment or increased metabolic capacity.
Luxcel Biosciences Ltd announce world first physiologically relevant, in vitro Ischemia-Reperfusion Model
Ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury, occurs in the body when blood supply returns to tissues after a period of oxygen and nutrient deprivation, and it is an important feature of several diseases. While significant advances have been made in understanding IR injury, progress has been impaired by i. the absence of a method to accurately and reproducibly replicate injury conditions in vitro, and ii. tools have not been available to quantitatively measure real-time cellular oxygenation in the ischemic cells.
