Method Description

IMOLA-IVD is an automated platform for monitoring the vitality of living cells based on the Intelligent Mobile Lab In Vitro Diagnostics. It can detect changes in cellular metabolism after toxic exposure. It is an automatisation of the Cytosensor Microphysiometer (CM) toxicity test that was developed for the labeling of chemicals for eye corrosion/irritation and is an alternative to the Draize rabbit eye irritation test.

The IMOLA-IVD IMOLA-IVD consists of three elements: (i) the sensor system, (ii) the pumping and switching of fluids, (iii) a program which runs the protocol according to the CM toxicity test protocol and collects the data.
