Nexus Scientific Announces Partnership with Phasefocus

Today, Phasefocus and Nexus Scientific announced a partnership to accelerate the adoption of Livecyte, a high content live cell analyser, in the US market. Live cell imaging is essential to answering some of the most pressing questions in the life sciences, but conventional methods often involve labeling cells, a potentially harmful process that can alter research outcomes. Livecyte’s integration of patented label-free Quantitative Phase Imaging technology with state-of-the-art automatic cell tracking algorithms enables users to automatically characterize growth, morphology and motility of large populations of cells in a 96-well plate assay format.

Nexus brings extensive experience in the cell analysis sector to the partnership, with a portfolio of cutting-edge live cell imaging and analysis tools. With the addition of Livecyte, Nexus can offer researchers a unique depth of live cell analysis capabilities in application areas such as drug discovery, regenerative medicine and cell-based assays.

Phasefocus CEO, Martin Humphry commented: “We are very excited to be embarking on a new adventure with the fantastic team at Nexus Scientific. Their extensive sector knowledge and talented team are a great complement to Phasefocus. The partnership will help us grow our US customer base and bring the unique capabilities of Livecyte to a new audience.”

“We are proud to be adding the ground-breaking Livecyte to our growing live cell imaging and analysis portfolio” added Selen Oztunaoglu, Managing Director at Nexus Scientific. “With Livecyte’s unique and powerful capabilities, we get to address a wider range of customers’ pain points and they’ll will be able to enjoy new depths of insights and push the boundaries of knowledge even further.”
