Your cells. Your career.
Cytocentric gives you the advantage.
Meeting the needs of your cells is a lofty aspiration, a noble if somewhat existential altruistic notion, and fully worthy of a radical and passionate advocacy. But don't be fooled. Cytocentricity is self-serving. It really benefits you!
Oxygen: Unmet Cell Needs
The best example of mishandled fundamental cell needs is oxygen. Most cell culture labs still disregard oxygen. It's there, in the air. But it is not optimized in most culture protocols or accounted for in any way in most research labs. No conventional People-Centric equipment manufacturers of incubators, hoods, glove boxes, etc. offer much except minimal oxygen control options. Cytocentric is completely different. It is the only equipment designed from the ground up for oxygen. It is the only equipment that can fully meet any oxygen requirement of any cells in any protocol. Simulating physiologic oxygen will make all your data more relevant than nonphysiologic oxygen. Accurate hypoxia modeling will make your data more relevant than inaccurate hypoxia. Non-fluctuating oxygen makes true cell phenotype instead of distorted phenotypte by decreasing noise in signal-to-noise ratio. Just getting oxygen under control not only benefits your cells, but benefits your research career. Oxygen is a significant part of cytocentricity, but oxygen is just one Cytocentric Principle.
Cell and tissue culture is now almost an ubiquitous procedure in all biomedical research labs. As the sophistication of cell technology has increased, the value of certain cells has soared. The cost of research has increased while the funding has shrunk. But attending to the needs of cells is not widely practiced yet (the best example is Oxygen - see side bar), and the benefits may not be obvious. Admittedly, some Cytocentric concepts are based on new science and not widely understood yet and maybe a little radical still. But handicapping yourself and disregarding even basic fundamental cell needs because of equipment limitations is no longer necessary.
Regenerative medicine, stem cells, tissue engineering, gene therapy, adoptive immunotherapy, assisted reproduction, bone marrow transplantation and all the other new clinical applications of cells are destined to change the landscape of medicine. Look closely and you'll see that cytocentric-by-design is the only real option. The stakes are too high, and regulatory agencies will agree. The needs of your cells must be met in order to use them in patients. If you are developing new cell therapies, it's not an exaggeration to claim Cytocentricity could make or break your career. Learn about the extreme advantages of this new alternative approach to clinical grade cell development and production. It will save you millions of dollars, it will save you years of time, it will minimize big risks to manageable levels, and best of all, it will allow you to deliver a higher quality therapeutic cell product than ever possible in the conventional open approach.
Drug discovery and toxicology need a better crystal ball to tell which compounds are going to be effective and safe. Molecular assays are too abstract. Whole animal studies are too insensitive and expensive and controversial. Cell-based assays are expected to become the best crystal ball ever. Learn how Cytocentricity will improve the predictive accuracy and throughput of your cell-based assays. That includes all cell-based assays: large or small, industrialized or individualized, automated or manual, high throughput or high content or both.
