Applying bioactive agents to living cells causes the cells to divide, migrate or die. The resulting cells’ mass redistribution and alteration of viscoelastic properties can be detected in Real-time by QCM device. Monitoring cellular response to an agent in real-time using a mass measuring device reveals unique information relevant to the biomechanics of living cells. Using a Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) device incorporating living cells, the real-time response of adherent cells to a bioactive agent can be measured. The QCM device (qCell T) is housed in a temperature controlled flow cell and responds with a frequency shift to changes in the cellular mass during treatments.
