What is Radiance®?

LumaCyte’s Radiance® platform instrument provides real-time, label-free, quantitative cell characterization analytics for better cellular characterization. Transforming the status quo, this capability enables manufacturers and production scientists to rapidly assess the quality of cellular starting materials and precisely optimize key production processes when manufacturing complex lifesaving biotherapeutics.

This revolutionary instrument utilizes Laser Force Cytology™ (LFC™) to measure cellular response and changes to their intrinsic biochemical and biophysical properties by measuring optical and fluidic forces on cells in a microfluidic device. Subtle cellular changes are precisely captured with the Radiance® automated workflow, allowing developers to measure real-time product quality attributes and immediately optimize processes, significantly improving both production quality and product yields. This includes both in-process analytics to inform and optimize the production process as well as offline release and potency assays used to ensure product quality and consistency.
