Institution: Universität Regensburg, Germany

Cell Line: HEK293, HeLa, and CFBE cells (Human embryonic kidney cells (HEK293), human cervical cancer ( HeLa), and cystic fibrosis bronchial epithelial (CFBE) cells)

Research Area: Cystic fibrosis

Tags: HoloMonitor, Cell morphology, CFTR

Conclusions: Mechanism in cystic fibrosis; role of induced cell death by reactive oxygen species (ROS) was investigated. Cell volume measurements using HoloMonitor was used to assess cell shrinkage during cell death.
