Cell Analysis Learning Center
Learn about cell analysis methods and technologies
The term cell analysis encompasses a broad range of applications, instrumentation and products that can be used to understand cellular function. The purpose of this learning center is to connect scientists (whether new or experienced) to our many resources for learning about cell analysis applications, techniques and basic principles by providing a few key points of entry into the vast content.
Cell analysis guided learning
Designed for beginners, our guided learning experiences and eLearning courses were developed to present experimental and research topics in modular fashion, allowing users to tackle one topic at a time at their own pace. Choose a topic below and get started!
The Molecular Probes School of Fluorescence was developed by our in-house bench scientists, featuring everything we wish we'd known when we first started working with fluorescent reagents, including the basics of fluorescence, imaging, and flow cytometry.
Our eLearning courses were developed to provide a succinct, contextual summary of common laboratory techniques and methods only used by researchers with an interest in protein and cell analysis workflows.
Cell analysis subtopics
Learn about imaging microscopy and high-content analysis including articles on new applications and techniques, webinars and videos covering controls, experiment design, and more. We cover topics including live- and fixed-cell imaging, high-content analysis for quantitative imaging, automated imaging platforms as well as transmitted light and colorimetric imaging applications.
Find useful articles, videos and tools for studying cell structure using fluorescence microscopy and high-content analysis.
Learn about assays and techniques for detecting and monitoring cell health and function by flow cytometry, imaging, high-content analysis and microplate assays. Topics include apoptosis, autophagy, cell counting, proliferation and viability as well as cell cycle, endocytosis, oxidative stress and more.
Cell counting can be a critical step in any experiment that involves comparing different cell populations or responses. In this section you will find application notes, videos and technical guides to help you achieve more accurate cell counts and ultimately more accurate results.
Learn about a wide range of applications and techniques related to using primary and secondary antibodies in your cell biology research. Topics include immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, using flow cytometry, and western blot analysis.
Learn about strategies and techniques for labeling proteins and antibodies for cell biology research. Topics include traditional reactive chemistries like amine and thiol labeling, protein-protein crosslinking, general protein crosslinkers and more. Newer chemistries for labeling proteins include click chemistry–based protein and carbohydrate labeling reactions.
Find the resources and tools that cover a wide range of techniques and applications for flow cytometry including functional assays and reagents for cell proliferation and viability, cell cycle, and apoptosis, flow cytometry antibodies and immunophenotyping, flow cytometer set-up and calibration, cell sorting, and more.
Learn about different research areas where cell analysis plays an important role. Find application notes and articles, scientific posters, webinars and other relevant content on cancer, exosomes, neuroscience, stem cell research, immunology, and more.
