Cells grown on an ECIS electrode
The ECIS method represents a non-invasive approach to monitor living cells in vitro. It measures the change in impedance of a small electrode over time.
In this system, cells are grown on small gold film electrodes carrying very weak AC signals. As cells attach and spread on these electrodes, their insulating membranes block and constrain the current flow, resulting in measured variations in the electrode impedance. Any changes in the environment, leading to morphological changes of the cell, alter the current paths and can be readily detected by the instrumentation. These changes may be due to the addition of compounds, changes in the physical environment (for example perfusion, transfection events, viral infections, and the addition of other cells).
The ECIS Cultureware consists of disposable electrode arrays containing gold film electrodes. Click here to learn more about the various types of ECIS Cultureware.

Impedance Measurements Under Flow Conditions
For impedance measurements under flow conditions, combine the ECIS System with the Pump System to more closely simulate the in vivo environment.
ECIS Transwell Measurement System
This system is designed to measure the TEER (Trans Epithelial / Endothelial Electric Resistance) of cell layers grown on filter inserts.
The ECIS Transwell Measurement System is a permament transwell holder to measure the TEER of cell layers. The holder contains a lower Filter holder base and an upper counter electrode system. It is used in filter-based assays.
