In collaboration with the prestigious Fraunhofer Translational Center for Regenerative Therapies Courage + Khazaka is developing the CellSpectrometer CMS 2100 to non-invasively examine in vitro tissue models using impedance spectroscopy. Even the smallest changes in the cellular tissue can be detected via transepithelial/transendothelial electrical resistance (TEER) in up to 24 cultured cell wells simultaneously.
As a result, the measured impedance TEER values provide an indispensable parameter for the integrity of the cellular barrier. A patented electrode coating allows an extremely high signal gain, and obtains very precise information about strengthening or damaging of the tissue after incubation with test substances. The non-invasive test procedure enables repeated measurements on the same sample so that regenerative or other long-term effects can be identified.
