Hepatocytes - Paracetamol toxicity on hepatocyte-like MetaHeps cells
The impedance signal recorded on the CardioExcyte 96 changes as a result of alterations in confluency, cell contact (morphological shape) and conductivity of adherent cells and thereby provides a measure of toxicity. MH cells from MetaHeps® were grown on NSP-96 plates and base impedance was monitored over time. Increasing concentrations of paracetamol induce a decrease in base impedance of MH cells which can be monitored continuously. Tween (2%) induced 100% cell death and was used as a positive control.
