Application Highlights

Stem cells and primary cells

With Nanolive’s live cell microscopes it is possible to perform endless live cell imaging at very high spatio-temporal resolution even on the most sensitive cells without damaging them.

Cell metabolism

Thanks to the Nanolive imaging capabilities, highlights of lipid droplets and mitochondria fine dynamics that were previously out of reach are clearly visible now.


Nanolive’s 3D Cell Explorer opens the door for new observations and for long-term live cell imaging of the dynamic interactions between immune cells and cancer cells, at high resolution.

Nanolive technology reveals ferroptosis execution in an aggressive human prostate cancer model

Ferroptosis is a new type of regulated cell death that was formally identified in 2012 [1]. It is an iron-dependent, non-apoptotic mode of cell death that is strongly linked to lipid metabolism. Since its discovery, Ferroptosis has been identified as a key regulator of occurrence and development in numerous diseases [2]. Inducing ferroptosis has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of highly malignant carcinomas [3].Identifying the morphological changes that characterize...

Nanolive technology highlights the importance of wnt signaling in organoid self-organization

Cell-cell interactions between embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and trophoblast stem cells (TSCs) play a vital role in tissue formation in developing embryos [1]. The two cell types are known to communicate through the wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway [2], but identifying the mechanism by which signals are transmitted - either via morphogenetic gradients or direct contact - has been elusive to date [3]. Junyent and colleagues investigate this topic in a new article, published in the Proceedings of...

Bioenergetics Consequences of Mitochondrial Transplantation in Cardiomyocytes

Could Mitochondrial transplantation into Cardiomyocytes be an effective treatment for cardiac disease? This paper shows the first test of transplanting non-autologous mitochondria from healthy skeletal muscle cells into normal cardiomyocytes. This transplant led to short term improvement of bioenergetics in the short term however the improved effects disappear over time. This could lead to a powerful treatment for acute cardio stress such as heart attacks. It is unclear as of yet if the loss...
