Imaging software offers high screening speed
Molecular Devices (UK)contact supplier
Molecular Devices has unveiled the MetaXpress 5.0 image acquisition and analysis software.
The new software enables user-created analysis to be run on MetaXpress PowerCore Software, which harnesses the speed of parallel processing and instantly cuts analysis time from hours to minutes.
An interactive tool incorporated into the software allows users to create custom analysis easily, without resorting to dedicated programming expertise.
- A total of 19 pre-designed analysis routines, with the facility to freely add in custom steps to create a tailored analysis
- Object click-to-find function allowing scientists to rapidly identify objects of interest within their images
- Investigators can easily import data from 3rd party hardware, and export measurements to a variety of formats with the new MDCStore™ Xchange Service plug-in
Zheng Yang, a computational biologist in the biotech industry, commented: “This unique software solution addresses the specificity required for common image analysis problems, yet offers the flexibility sought after in advanced development for high content screening methods.
“The MetaXpress Software has dramatically increased the speed and throughput of high content and morphometric screening of our neuron cultures. The ability to apply a custom analysis module to all images captured from a single well in batch form saves significant time in our screening workflow.”
The low-noise data acquisition system will be exhibited at French Neuroscience 2013 later this month.
Molecular Devices will showcase its SpectraMax i3 multi-mode microplate reader and AquaMax Washer.
