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.

Key Features

 

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.

 

Overview

 

 

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.
