High-Content Screening Platform
Thermo Fisher Scientific
A new high-content screening software platform enables cancer researchers to uncover more about basic and advanced cellular function to accelerate cell-based research. The Thermo Scientific HCS Studio 2.0 is a high-content quantitative imaging and analysis software platform for a range of cancer research applications, including angiogenesis and migration/invasion, as well as the development of three-dimensional models of cancer stem cells and spheroid tumors. The new Thermo Scientific HCS Studio 2.0, coupled with Thermo Scientific high-content analysis platforms, are increasingly being used in cancer biology as they are well suited for large-scale, high throughput biology, including complex morphological analyses of cells, cell structure, and aggregations of cells in colonies, yet simple enough to be applied to everyday assays such as viability and proliferation. The challenges posed by complex cancer applications and cell models demand new types of quantitative analysis techniques, and the new software provides innovative assay techniques and functionality.
