CyBio, Definiens

CyBio this week announced the launch of its CyBi-NanoJet Flexible Assay Processor.
According to the manufacturer, the CyBi-NanoJet FAP comes with additional functions such as an integrated calibration wizard for optical and gravimetrical calibrations and a channel managing module. In addition, a new combination tool for different types of reservoirs provides extra handling flexibility.

Definiens this week launched the Enterprise Image Intelligence Suite 7.
The company said that this latest version of its image analysis platform is an open framework that gives pharmaceutical and biotech companies access to all relevant information acquired in image analysis. The image information gathered in various phases of the drug-development process can now be integrated across and exchanged within the entire organization, according to the manufacturer.
A central repository automatically stores ruleware and any types of image analysis results and statistics. Search capabilities locate information, workspaces, projects, results, and ruleware, while user-defined queries can be saved to enable common retrieval tasks to be reused and automated.
Users can also add metadata to better describe objects and perform related searches. Analysis results can be connected to other contextual information using common informatics tools.
Definiens said that its product also includes faster image analysis results through improved viewing and visualization tools, easy creation of new image analysis applications, simplified management with a new web-based administrator, and full integration capability across the enterprise that can leverage existing investments.
