Children’s cancer research at the highest level

The research groups based in the research house of the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer have been provided with the high content imaging device “ImageXpress Micro XSL” from Molecular Devices GmbH, a research method that is used in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, as well as in renowned research institutes, to develop new strategies and drugs to combat a wide range of diseases. The ImageXpress Micro XLS is equipped with a transmitted light option and the ability to observe live cells. Until now, some of our research projects have been recorded and analysed manually using imaging techniques. In contrast, the fully automated Epi-Fluorescence Microscope offers the possibility to automate the work steps to a high degree. We expect this to accelerate, but above all to improve the quality of the research methods. Better standardisation, simpler processes, faster evaluation of results and a higher sample throughput should help to advance the research projects we support in childhood cancer research even more successfully.

If you would like to support our research, then you have the opportunity here to support specific acquisitions/projects or also the operation of the Research House in general with your donation.
