GlucCell: Your Glucose Meter Partner

By Esco Healthcare 9 August, 2017

Glucose is the main source of energy for cells specially in in-vitro cultures. Glucose gives cells the required energy in order to grow and proliferate. Sadly reserchers and scientists around the globe do not know the proper levels of glucose required by their culture. Learn why measuring glucose is important and what is the best way to do it.


Cells require different levels of glucose throughout the duration of the cell culture process. Too much or too little glucose can prove disastrous to the cells being culture. Too little and cells won't have the energy required to grow and proliferate while too much would immerse the cells in a diabetic environment thus changing their properties.

These common problems can easily be avoided by regularly measuring glucose.
