Cell-based Assay services

Imagine you could keep an eye inside a living single cell and be able to know what is happening at every moment…

An understanding of cell biology should include seeing cellular phenotypes in their intact state (by using SPAchip® in combination with image analysis) and communicating these through quantitative analysis whenever possible, but the understanding of cell biology must begin at the beginning.

With A4cell’s SPAchip® assay services, your cell studies will be enhanced by our SPAchip expertise, our cell assay knowledge, and our latest single-cell analysis equipment. Now, intracellular activity can be analysed in vivo with unprecedented detail.
