PerkinElmer Inc.’s Columbus 2.3 Image Data Storage and Analysis System enables scientists to perform high-content analysis on one platform, from image to secondary analysis, regardless of which high-content screening (HCS) instrument they have.
The secondary analysis capabilities enable scientists to select small interfering RNA (siRNA) or compounds with desirable inhibition or activation effects, by proving the statistical significance of the observations made at the image analysis stage of a high content screening campaign. Multiple plates or batches are analyzed, filtering out anomalies and identifying trends.
The improved morphology analysis capability of the software is designed to give scientists an understanding of the effects different treatments have on cell samples.
The system supports a range of image file formats for microscopy and screening with import filters and through compliance with the Open Microscopy Environment (OME).
