Genedata Showcases Integrated Analysis and Image Management Solution for Phenotypic Screening at 11th Annual HCA
Press release date: February 2, 2014
Regardless of instrument or application, Genedata ScreenerŽ for High Content Screening enables time-efficient workflow for analysis of high-content experiments
La Jolla, Calif. - Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for drug discovery and life science research, will demonstrate Genedata Screener for High Content Screening (HCS) at the 11th annual High Content Analysis conference. Genedata Screener for HCS efficiently analyzes raw data from phenotypic screening experiments performed on a wide range of HCS instruments. Its latest image management capabilities provide full integration of HCS images into the analysis/review workflow as well as enterprise-wide access to images and analysis results. Genedata Screener will be featured in the HCA Technology Showcase (Feb. 19) and demonstrated at the HCA Conference at the San Diego Marriott (Booth #13; Feb. 19 - 20).
Conquering Multi-Instrument HCS Complexity
Biology labs use HCS as the workhorse for all phenotypic-centric screening activities. Oftentimes, images from different instruments must go through the same data analysis workflow and be made available throughout the analysis. Therefore, image management including searching and archiving images can be difficult at best or nearly impossible at worst. Complementary to point solutions, the image management capabilities of Genedata Screener for HCS address the challenges of a multi-instrument environment. Regardless of the HCS instrumentation or HCS software package, Genedata Screener enables streamlined image management and fast secondary analysis in a simple and solid workflow. With Genedata Screener for HCS, scientists can:
Import HCS images and image analysis results, regardless of origin
Annotate images, results and experiments using experiment-centric meta data
Quickly browse and query HCS data within and across experiments
Manage HCS data with central authentication and project-specific authorization
Gather entire screening data analysis workflows on a single platform
Out-of-the box, Genedata Screener integrates with leading HCS instruments, simultaneously supporting multiple HCS systems. With instant access to HCS images, scientists have clear visibility into the data analysis pipeline, enabling easy review of phenotypic changes and discovery of biological events (e.g. during dose response curve fitting). Interactive cell histograms provide analysis of cell populations and calculations of cell-to-well aggregations.
"The latest enhancements to Genedata Screener make analysis of phenotypic screening experiments even more user-friendly and efficient while improving the ROI of our customers' technology investments," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "Image management is an area we will continue to advance and its integration in Genedata Screener for HCS shows our commitment to continuously develop Screener and strengthen its position as platform of choice for all plate-based screening."
