    There is a current focus in biology towards developing more complex and physiologically relevant in vitro assays and cell models, using phenotypic multi-parameter read-outs, and implementing complex methods of analysis. However, scaling and automating these assays can be challenging. Instruments and technologies that capture the complexity of biological responses with the goal of better understanding the mechanism of healthy or disease-state cells contribute in a meaningful way to avoid unwanted toxic responses or to identify new drug candidates.

    We will present new tools, like the ImageXpress® Nano Automated Imaging System and CellReporterXpress Image Acquisition and Analysis Software for advancing complex biological models and methods for adapting and scaling up process for compound testing. We will also highlight new analytical tools for collecting and processing multi-parametric read-outs that will enable scientists to take full advantage of the complexity of biological assays.

    Join our presentation to gain insights about improving the workflow for your complex biological assays.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Implement cost-effective automated imaging with remote acquisition and analysis capabilities
    • Improve workflow process utilizing new software for image analysis and visualization which comes preloaded with 25 different analysis protocols
    • Run functional and cytotoxicity assays using various cell models including iPSC-derived cardiac and neuronal cells
