Genedata Forges Alliance with Intellicyt
News Jun 18, 2015
The firms will integrate Genedata's Screener software with IntelliCyt's iQue Screener system.
The alliance will bring Genedata's highly-scalable data analytics to IntelliCyt's high-throughput flow cytometry capabilities. The iQue Screener can analyze more than 10,000 cells or beads per second, the firm said in a statement, an order of magnitude increase over plate-based systems, with up to 15 parameters per cell.
"Advanced computational analysis solutions are required to handle the quantity and complexity of data obtained in high-throughput flow cytometry experiments in large-scale screening applications," Janette Phi, chief business officer at Albuquerque, New Mexico-based IntelliCyt, said in a statement. "The combined solution of Genedata Screener software and the IntelliCyt iQue Screener platform addresses this unmet industry need. Our solution provides a powerful option for our customers for robust and accurate data analysis across all plates from high-throughput flow cytometry data generated by iQue."
The combined technologies will enable researchers to screen large libraries of drug candidates against suspension cells and multiplex beads in phenotypic drug discovery, antibody screening, immunology, and biomarker research, the firms said.
All humans share a common characteristic: the many cells making up their bodies are always on the move. As we humans commute to work, cells migrate through the body to get their jobs done. Biologists have long struggled to quantify the movement and changing morphology of cells through time, but now, scientists have devised an elegant tool to do just that.READ MORE
