Conventional cell- and bead-based assays can be time-consuming, manual procedures providing only semi-quantitative data. Using high-content analysis systems to obtain object-based, quantitative data is costly and requires expert user input and analysis as well as application-specific modifications.
The CellReporter system from Genetix is a multi-application solution that overcomes these challenges to provide accurate, object-based data suitable for a wide range of assays to determine, for example, cytotoxicity, cell viability, apoptosis, cell proliferation, and antibody quantification. Since assays require no further interaction once set up, the system can be easily integrated into automated robotic systems to increase productivity.
Utilizing state-of-the-art imaging technology and image-analysis software, the system generates high-quality, quantitative data by imaging, analyzing, and generating a report based on individual cells or beads.
The system can be used to run a wide range of assays without the need to change hardware or software. System control and image-analysis software, developed in collaboration with users, provides an intuitive, step-by-step workflow that requires only minimal training. In addition, imaging using multiple wavelength filters makes it possible to multiplex a number of assays, thereby greatly improving speed and output of results.
