Workflow-oriented and simple to navigate, HCS Studio™ Cell Analysis Software allows access to all instrument configuration and control functions with intuitive tools. Guided workflows with visual feedback allow for assay protocol setup, image acquisition, analysis, and scanning. Save time by acquiring and analyzing simultaneously. By ensuring only the statistically significant number of cells is captured, less time is spent scanning unnecessarily.

Features

  • Analyze multiple image formats—Allows image formats from a variety of sources and in several different file types to be imported singly or in batch, organized for analysis, and then analyzed and stored using Thermo Scientific™ Store™ Image and Database Management Software
  • Compare and optimize two biological extents—Allows you to apply and interact with two biology types simultaneously without the risk of bias
  • Scale for complex assays—Scales seamlessly providing a host of algorithmic, visualization, and online help tools reducing the complexity and time investment of developing assays

Image analysis that makes sense

HCS Studio™ Cell Analysis Software offers simple workflows to help you develop and optimize an assay without functionality loss. With simple and straightforward task-oriented approaches to image algorithm development, new users are immediately productive. When a more complex assay is designed, HCS Studio™ Cell Analysis Software scales seamlessly, providing a host of algorithmic, visualization, and online help tools that reduce the complexity and time investment of developing assays.

From optimized assay settings

Users of HCS Studio™ Cell Analysis Software start with more than 30 pre-established assays (Figure 1) that can be optimized to cell line and particular phenotype. Driven by intuitive icons, you can simply choose the assay and magnification of the optimized protocol, confirm settings, and begin the scan. We’ve done the work, so you don’t have to.

examples of the icons used in the software that the user can select to run various assays including cell cycle, zebrafish toxicity, apoptosis, and DNA damage
