Overview

There are many applications that benefit greatly from a label-free approach. Fundamentally, such an approach allows researchers to ask questions without the bias of antibody or genetic labels.

Vaccines

Infectivity studies, viral vectors, adventitious viruses, and correlates of protection

Cancer

Tumor cell, tissue, and circulating tumor cell (CTC) identification and characterization

Infectious disease

Viral and bacterial infection of mammalian cells

Phenotypic  drug discovery

Pre-clinical drug candidate screening, toxicology, and cell biology

Biotechnology

Rapid detection and quantitation of viral vector production of proteins and antibodies during R&D and manufacturing. For viral safety, the rapid detection of adventitious viruses in bioreactors and production processes.

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC)

Measure changes in optical forces and cytoskeletal changes (deformability) for differentiated and dedifferentiated cells

Other label-free applications:

Gene expression

Identify and quantify changes in cellular properties upon modification of cellular genome (gene knock-outs/ins)

Cell clearance

Measurement of apoptosis and macrophage activity and disfunction

Epigenetics

Changes in cellular phenotype due to epigenetics require label-free methods of analysis to understand changes happening outside of the genome

Radiobiology

Quantify effects of radiation on cells without labels
