A state-of-the-art Livecyte microscope has been fully funded by the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation. In a celebration of cutting-edge research and technological innovation The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO, Hon DUniv (Griffith), patron of the Foundation, unveiled the Phasefocus2 Livecyte microscope and plaque.

The microscope represents a significant advancement in scientific instrumentation and is set to revolutionise the Spinal Injury Project undertaken by the Clem Jones Centre for Neurobiology and Stem Cell Research at Griffith University. It enables the research team to perform critical cell analysis and screening procedures, a crucial step toward the cell transplantation and rehabilitation human clinical trial. 

The ability to visualise living cells as they are growing is critically important for safety testing. The Livecyte allows for the identification of any cells that exhibit abnormalities or are likely to cause complications such as tumour formation. By screening the cells that are prepared for the patient, and ensuring the cells are healthy, the research team can decrease the risk of adverse events for the patients.
