Cell Imaging, Analysis
Sep 2011Solentim Ltd.Request Info
Solentim Ltd. has announced the Cell Metric cell imaging and analysis
instrument. Engineered as a high-throughput work flow system to screen for colonies
from single-cell cloning experiments, it uses proprietary nonimage-based focusing
to locate all possible colonies by imaging the whole well, right up to the edge.
The platform provides complete and accurate cell measurements, without removing
the cells from the culture plate and without adding stains or dyes, ensuring that
cells are suitable for use in downstream experiments. The system can identify every
healthy viable cell clone from large multiwell screening projects and can track
the visual history of the colonies back to single cells. The proprietary imaging
technology overcomes the problems of shadowing and edge effects. Colonies tend to
form around the edge of wells.
