In conclusion, these findings indicate that the time-dependant resolution, provided by the TCRP approach, can be used in conjunction with phenotypic profiling approaches to obtain additional data associated with small molecule compounds. TCRP approach provides predictive mechanistic information for small molecule compounds.

The non-invasive and label-free xCELLigence analysis method, originally invented by ACEA Biosciences in San Diego, USA is based on measuring the impedance of cells. The technique utilizes an electronic readout of impedance to non-invasively quantify cellular status in real-time. Cells are seeded in E-Plate microtiter plates, which are integrated with microelectronic sensor arrays. The interaction of cells with the microelectrode surface generates a cell-electrode impedance response, which not only indicates cell viability but also correlates with the number of the cells seeded in the well. In conjunction with its user-friendly data collection and analysis capabilities, the xCELLigence System makes a unique platform for continuous, real-time cell-based assays and provides a huge opportunity for cellular and molecular biology.
