Genetix Introduces CellReporter - A Live Cell Based Assay System
Product News Apr 17, 2007
Genetix Ltd has announced the introduction of a cell based assay platform, CellReporter. The CellReporter is a platform for quantitative screening that produces qualified data for multiwell, live cell assays at high speed, using white light and multiplexed fluorescence.
Genetix has combined the speed of a plate reader, the quality of a microscope and the insight of high content assays. CellReporter assesses multiple parameters in parallel, delivering analysis and normalization of data. Easy to interpret features that validate assay read outs are built-in, ensuring that a compound hit list is available minutes following assay completion. This compares to several days for traditional workflows. Only biologically relevant data feeds into subsequent data processing packages.
CellReporter includes campaign driven software, imaging instrumentation and assay reagents for essential applications such as cell viability and morphology, cell proliferation, and apoptosis.
Data from Cell Reporter is stored in a standard format to allow export to other processing packages if required. In addition, by integrating with data from Genetix’s CloneSelect Imager, scientists have a useful direct link between information about cell growth and assay data from CellReporter.
