Model Organisms

"We were very happy that the system is so easy to set-up and we are still amazed by the beautiful images it generates." Dr. Oliver Nayler, Actelion Pharmaceuticals


Live cell imaging of Caenorhabditis elegans



Label-free live cell imaging of C.elegans

Caenorhabditis elegans is one of the most widely used model organisms in biomedical research. Appreciate images and movies here.


Fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) during division



Monitor your yeast cells marker-free and real-time for as long as you need

Analyze morphology and behavior of yeast cells with high resolution and in 3D/4D

  • Characterize budding/fission process in 3D and 4D
  • Measure cytoplasm/vacuole volume during the growing/starvation/aging phenomena 
  • Inspect yeast reactions to stimuli you apply on your culture


Bacillus megaterium



Examine bacteria cultures growth & biofilms dynamics

Nanolive‚Äôs 3D Cell Explorer enables accurate and quantitative 4D spatio-temporal monitoring of bacteria cultures & microfilms

  • Monitor bacteria colonies growing into 3D systems stain-free (e.g. alginate beads).
  • Monitor the volume of a single bacterium or of a growing bacteria colony
  • Image and discriminate multi-layers of bacteria in biofilms totally stain-free
  • Study bacteria interactions with other cell types/ tissues


Dictyostelium discoideum hunting bacteria



Observe fast moving protozoa in 3D and real-time

Analyze morphology and behavior of protozoa with high spatio-temporal resolution and in 4D

  • High temporal resolution (3D/1.7s)
  • Quantitative measurements of contractile vacuoles
  • Monitoring of psudopod formation and crawling
