A collaboration between Merrimack College (North Andover, MA) and Nexcelom Bioscience LLC used a Cellometer Vision in an undergraduate immunology classroom to explore differentiation, activation, cell surface marker expression and cytokine production in mouse bone marrow stem cells. The Cellometer Vision allowed the students to visualize and analyze their cells for various surface markers before designing experiments to explore the activity of natural anti-inflammatory compounds on TNF-alpha production.
More than 50% of Nexcelom employees hold advanced degrees – so it’s no surprise that we love collaborations with other scientists and institutions. Many of our academic customers have taken advantage of our Teaching Lab program – as a way to introduce their students to alternate methods for performing cell counts and cell-based assays. If you think the Teaching Lab might benefit your lab, reach out to us – we’d love to hear from you!
