Thermo Fisher launches High Content 2.0 software
Thermo Fisher Scientific (Cellular Imaging)
High Content 2.0
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced Thermo Scientific High Content 2.0: an evolution of automated, quantitative cell imaging for life scientists studying cell function.
High Content 2.0 builds on the success of high-content screening (HCS) and high-content analysis, advancing the Thermo Scientific Cellomics Arrayscan VTI HCS platform.
The new software will be demonstrated within Booth #11 at the Cambridge Healthtech Institute High Content Analysis Meeting, held in San Francisco on 11-15 January 2010.
New Idev guided workflow software is a new addition to the High Content 2.0 platform.
The software is designed for the rigors of multi-user environments and provides users with the means to efficiently and effectively develop cell-imaging assays.
Leveraging Thermo Fisher Scientific's image analysis tools, Idev combines a step-by-step assay setup with an 'easy assay optimiser' feature that addresses multiple groups of biological states simultaneously to reduce critical assay development timelines.
This interactive tool allows the user to simultaneously visualise algorithmic parameter changes at the image, data and statistical level in real time.
A light-emitting-diode (LED) light engine, designed to overcome the limitations of current bulb technology, offers speed and reliability for screening campaigns while reducing exposure times, data variability and consumable expenses, according to the company.
With a stable solid-state five-colour light excitation capability, a 10,000-hour-plus life and low power consumption, the LED light engine offers improvements in large-scale data generation with a reduced environmental footprint.
High Content 2.0 also incorporates the Axiovert Z1: the latest optical bench from Carl Zeiss.
The Arrayscan VTI has a performance benchmark of fewer than four minutes to image and analyse a typical two-channel 96-well plate.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the launch of the Cellomics Toxinsight Solution at the World Pharmaceutical Congress on 9-11 June in Philadelphia.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the availability of HCSDiscover, a data-mining tool for high-content applications, which will be demonstrated at the SBS Annual Conference.
Thermo Fisher Scientific announced the launch of the Cellomics Zebratox v3.0 Bioapplication at the SOT 48th Annual Meeting and Tox-Expo.
Thermo Fisher Scientific will unveil the Cellomics Comet v3.0 Bio-application at the SOT 48th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, Baltimore, Maryland, on 15-19 March.
