ImmunoSpot® Readers enabling up to Seven Color Analysis

In 1995, CTL’s founding scientists introduced image analysis-based ELISPOT counting (Ref). (ref links to (US Patent 6,410,252 B1), making the beginning of ImmunoSpot® Readers. Since then, thousands of these instruments have been sold world-wide (see), (see Matt Bolek’s link http://www.mediafire.com/file/71y841pef1zbm62/rotatingw-analyzer.mp4/file ) serving the “who is who” of academic and biotechnology researchers (see) (link to Page 24)

Strengths of ImmunoSpot® Readers/Software include:

  • Regulatory compliance (links to Page 20)
  • Objective counting, based on scientifically validated principles (links to Page 21)
  • PBMC fitness assessment (live/dead/apoptotic cell counting) (Links to Page 27)
  • Measuring cell-mediated cytotoxicity (links to Page 28)
  • Measuring neutralizing antibodies, colony counting (links to Page 29)
  • Software guides through the entire analysis process, from planning the experiment to the statistical evaluation of the data (links to Page 22)
  • High throughput solutions (Page 16)

ImmunoSpot® Analyzers

Our Immunospot Analyzers are specifically designed for use in applications that benefit from morphometric analysis—applications such as ELISPOT assays; bacterial, yeast, stem cell, tumor colony counting, and various plaque and clonogenic assays.
