PITTSBURGH — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 30, 2014 — Cell biologists have a new imaging and analysis software available to them that offers speed, flexibility and efficiency for large-scale, high-throughput biology, including complex morphological analyses of cells, cell structure, and aggregations of cells in colonies. While robust, the platform is also simple enough to be applied to everyday assays such as viability and proliferation.

The new Thermo Scientific CeLLInsight CX5 High Content Screening (HCS) Platform, a high-content quantitative imaging and analysis platform-powered by new Thermo Scientific HCS Studio 2.0 Cell Analysis Software, continues to advance technologies and options for single cell analysis across Thermo Scientific’s broad high content analysis portfolio. Adding Near-IR (infrared) capability to the CeLLInsight CX5 HCS Platform, the system is now enabled with true five-color spectral illumination, allowing access to a greater range of fluorescent reagents. Seven new validated assays were added to the platform, as well as the capability to accept images for analysis in many different formats.
“This new product offering allows users even more flexibility when coupled with the world class microscopy and fluorescent detection tools offered through our Life Technologies brand,” said Scott Keefer, manager of product marketing, cell analysis, for Thermo Fisher Scientific. “With HCS Studio 2.0 Cell Analysis Software, researchers can seamlessly import images from the EVOS Microscope Platforms as well as access Molecular Probes fluorescent reagents for imaging in multiple colors.”
Products are “For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.”
