NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PerkinElmer has integrated its image data management system for high content screening with Accelrys' data analysis and reporting platform, PerkinElmer.
PerkinElmer's Columbus software will provide detailed images containing single cells and "large amounts of cell data," and Accelrys' Pipeline Platform will deliver "intelligent algorithms and image analysis data transfer capability," PerkinElmer said.
"The outcome of this integration will enable scientists to apply all the data and statistical analysis they are used to seeing from a well based level to a single cell level, allowing deeper understanding of cellular processes," Accelrys VP and Chief Scientific Officer Frank Brown said in a statement. "The use of machine learning and computer automation on the large amounts of data generated brings the early promise of high content screening to fruition."
The collaboration will give researchers "access to multiplexed cellular information including morphology, intensity, complexity, and intensity of specific compartments, as well as fluorescence, translocation, morphology changes, and texture analysis, among other read outs," said Richard Eglen, PerkinElmer's president of Bio-discovery.
