W8 Cell Biology Balance

The W8 (pronounced ‘weight’) from CellDynamics is an analytical lab weighing balance for the quantitative measurement of size, weight and mass density for biological samples. It can be used for single cell suspensions to 3D spheroids ranging from 20 microns to 500 microns.

Accurate and precise knowledge of mass density, shape, size and weight of cells or cell aggregates provides valuable insights in understanding processes into outcomes of assays. Our early applications include cancer research, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The W8 physical cytometry system offers a paradigm shift by enabling standardisation of 3D heterogeneous models.

Description

The W8 is an analytical, lab weighing balance for the quantitative measurement of size, weight, and mass density on biological samples. From single cell suspensions to the 3d spheroids.

Gathering precise information on mass density, shape, size and weight of cells or cell aggregates, is crucial for several applications as for cancer research, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Although few technical solutions have been presented for single cell analysis, scientists still lack methods for physical cytometry and standardization of 3D Biology heterogenous models.

With an intuitive user Interface and automated data analysis in spreadsheet files, the W8 technology offers a groundbreaking weighing method to perform quality control of 3D cell culture and quantitatively evaluate in vitro assays from the physical point of view.
