Cell analysis is defined as the study of cells isolated from tissues in multi-cellular organisms and uni-cellular organisms. Cell analysis is a natural step in the reductionist approach to study genetical as well as phonotypical characteristics of the organism. The average response of the cells in cell culture or tissue is considered as response of the entire cell in the sample. Therefore, the effect of cell number on cell behavior is often ignored due to difficulties in monitoring such phenomena. For example dynamic study of single living cell helps in understanding the interconnecting molecular events which are continuously taking place in the cell. Cell analysis is a basically done for cell identification, cell proliferation, cell viability, cell signaling, single cell analysis, cell counting and quality control, cell structure study and cell interaction. Instruments which are used for cell analysis include:
- Cell counting instruments: Various instruments are used for counting the cells in the cell sample or cell culture including counting chamber, spectrophotometer, flow cytometer and microscopes
- Microscopes: Microscopes are used for studying phonotypical characters such as shape and size of the cell. Microscopes such as transmission electron microscope and scanning electron microscope are majorly used for precise examination of small cells
- Flow cytometer: Flow cytometer are the instruments used for cell cycle analysis. The technique helps in studying the different phases involved in cell cycle
- Spectrophotometer: Spectrophotometers are used for cell analysis due to their property of measuring turbidity very accurately as cell cultures are turbid
- qRT-PCR: Quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) is a quantitative PCR technique used to quantify the amount of cDNA in a cell sample
- Cell microarrays: Cellular microarrays are the tools used for multiplex interrogation of living cells on the solid support surface. This support is known as chip and this chip is spotted with various materials such as antibodies, lipids or proteins, these materials interact with cell leading to their binding on specific spots, the cell is then analyzed for phenotypical characters and response of the cell on binding.
The market for cell analysis is increasing at faster pace from recent years due to increasing hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, research and development institutions and educational institutes. Cell analysis instruments provide accuracy in results of cell imaging and analysis system which helps in reducing the time period and cost involved in drug delivery and other research and development activities.
