One of the most direct ECIS measurements is monitoring the attachment and spreading behaviors of cells. These measurements allow one to study and quantify the interaction of cultured cells with extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and other macromolecules continuously and in real time.
Traditionally, cell attachment and spreading measurements have been labor intensive, requiring many manipulations of the cultures for microscopic evaluation of cell behavior. With ECIS, these measurements are automated, and data are acquired without opening the incubator door.
This webinar will briefly introduce ECIS and then present quantitative data regarding the attachment and spreading behavior of cells in vitro.
