The DEPArray system combines image-based cell selection with dielectrophoresis-based cell movement for identification and sorting of individual cells, or pools of cells, at 100% purity for detailed molecular analysis.
Once cells are seeded on a biomaterial, coordinated cell movement is a quintessential requirement for cellular proliferation, differentiation, and subsequent tissue regeneration [8].
In addition to color, you've got to look at cell movement and the intensity over time to determine the stage of the cell, and understand what might be actually reflecting the radar.
In the future, we will investigate if and how such changes in surface morphology affect cell movement throughout cell culture.
Because the notochord is surrounded by the muscle, endoderm, and neural ectoderm, these tissues are thought to affect the orientation of notochord cell movement during convergent extension.
