Description

Cellomics High Content Screening/Analysis enables automated acquisition, visualization and quantification of a large number of images:
• Automated fluorescence and brightfield microscopy
• Extraction of quantitative data from intensity and area measurements
• High through-put format
Examples of dynamic processes that may be measured are:
• Migration
• Changes in morphology, expression pattern and intensity.
Acquisition and analysis of images of:
• Live and fixed cells
• Subcellular targets
• Small organisms
The high throughput format enables a time-saving, unbiased acquisition and analysis of cells in a multiwall format, or on slides.
