Using a graphical user interface, researchers can view a whole plate, zoom in on specific wells or colonies of interest, and view histograms, scatter plots, and time charts. Cellavista works with microplates, microscope slides, chamber slides, and culture dishes. Automated image stitching capabilities enable complete whole-well analysis as one image. Gating capabilities give the user the ability to select specific objects and colonies of interest. The system’s design facilitates integration with robotic plate loaders and automated incubators.

Innovatis this week introduced Cellavista, an image-based system that can be used to rapidly visualize a broad range of cellular assays, and simultaneously perform image analysis.
Cellavista combines brightfield and fluorescence optic capabilities. The system uses specially designed optics combined with fast auto-focus, the company said. Assay-specific analysis algorithms have been fully developed to identify cell clusters or colonies and are applicable to stem cell research.
