“Actelion researchers were among the first to explore the potential of the Nanolive 3D Cell Explorer in cell biological applications within the pharmaceutical industry. We were very happy that the system is so easy to set-up (plug-and-play) and we are still amazed by the beautiful images it generates.

 We mainly use the Cell Explorer to perform real time image acquisition and we follow compound activity in different cellular backgrounds. In a very short period of time, the 3D Cell Explorer has become very intensively used and we have found applications in several different disease areas – we would not want to be without this instrument.”
