Track cell proliferation, viability, morphology, and immune cell-mediated killing with the Maestro Z.
Axion BioSystems Maestro Z platform offers impedance-based cell analysis for real time, continuous, label free monitoring of your cells. Continuous data reveals the kinetics of cell-cell interactions and cell-drug responses for better mechanistic understanding without the time- and cost-intensive process of repeating multiple endpoint assays.
Now with a smartphone app allowing you to check on your experiment from outside the lab.
Taking care of the assay so you can focus on the science.
Monitor your experiments from outside the lab - The new Maestro Z App allows you to check in on your cells and experiment to ensure everything is running smoothly while you are away from the lab.
Precisely control the cells environment - There is no need for an additional cell culture incubator, saving valuable lab space and money. Maestro Z’s smart environmental chamber finely controls temperature and CO₂ while rejecting electrical noise and mechanical vibrations.
Continuous cell monitoring - 96 simultaneous live recordings from your cells. The Maestro Z system performs noninvasive electrical measurements from the cultured cell population, circumventing the use of dyes/reporters that can perturb your cell model and confound results. Track activity over hours and weeks from the same population of cells label free and in real time.
See your cells - Maestro Z’s transparent CytoView-Z 96-well plates have a viewing window in each well, allowing for cell visualization and assay multiplexing.
Start your assay with the push of a button - “One button setup,” means temperature and CO₂ levels automatically adjust on plate docking. Plate usage is logged via an integrated plate barcode scanner for convenient experiment tracking.
Review your results faster - The Impedance module with AxIS Z software provides a simplified approach to the setup, execution, and analysis of experiments.
Increase throughput with multiple Maestros - Continuously monitor multiple plates automatically and simultaneously with multiple Maestro support. Save space in your lab by controlling multiple Maestro systems using a single computer.
Cell-based assays enable rapid evaluation of human biology in vitro, with substantial advantages in throughput and cost over tissue or animal models. However, many cell-based assays are endpoint assays, limited to a single snapshot in time. Axion BioSystems’ Maestro Z platform offers impedance-based cell analysis for real time, continuous, label free monitoring of your cells. Continuous data reveals the kinetics of cell-cell interactions and cell-drug responses for better mechanistic understanding without the time- and cost-intensive process of repeating multiple endpoint assays.
The Maestro Z system is available with two software modules: Impedance and GxP Impedance. Select the software modules to match your assay needs:
Impedance – Track cell proliferation, morphology, and viability label-free and in real-time. Ideal for immuno-oncology, cytotoxicity, virology, cell migration, cell proliferation, GPCR assays, and many more.
GxP Impedance – Achieve FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance in GMP/GLP labs with this version of the Impedance Software Module.
The Maestro Z system is compatible with the 96-well impedance assay plate.
CytoView-Z – The Maestro impedance plate with a transparent well bottom for cell visualization and assay multiplexing. Available in a 96-well plate format.
