GE Healthcare, Harvard Lab to Develop New Software for IN Cell System

NEW YORK, Aug. 8 (GenomeWeb News) - GE Healthcare has given an IN Cell 1000 imaging system to  Harvard University's Center for Neurodegeneration and Repair, and said it and the university will  develop new software applications for the platform, the companies said today.


The IN Cell systems will primarily be used by HCNR researchers investigating neurodegenerative diseases and the central nervous system using a software package that includes fully validated analysis routines for rapid analysis of a range of biological processes, GE and HCNR said.


HCNR has also been given access to the IN Cell Toolbox to accommodate applications of the system where pre-developed analysis routes are not appropriate.


Additional terms of the partnership were not disclosed. More detail about the collaboration is available from Cell-Based Assay News, a GenomeWeb News sister publication, here.
