Software designed to improve the ease and speed of custom analysis using the Company’s ImageXpress® Micro and Ultra Systems.

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. The system includes a total of 19 pre-designed analysis routines, with the facility to freely add in custom steps to create a tailored analysis. MetaXpress 5.0 also features object click-to-find, 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.”

“With the release of MetaXpress 5.0, our software can now analyze images using custom analysis routines at speeds that will keep up with acquisition,” said Grischa Chandy, Product Manager of Cellular Imaging at Molecular Devices, LLC. “ImageXpress Systems combined with MetaXpress Software offer some of the fastest high content screening solutions available, significantly improving screening workflow and providing the flexibility needed for the research environment.”
