Genedata Screener for HCS Advances Phenotypic Screening
Date:1/9/2013

San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) January 08, 2013

Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for drug discovery and life science research, today announced it will demonstrate Genedata Screener’s phenotypic screening capabilities at the 10th Annual High Content Analysis (HCA) Conference. Genedata Screener® for High Content Screening (HCS) covers complete screening analysis from cell-level data to final campaign results. Integrating with leading HCS instruments, Genedata Screener simultaneously supports multiple HCS image acquisition and analysis systems while eliminating data analysis bottlenecks and providing instant image access throughout the data analysis pipeline. Genedata Screener for HCS will be demonstrated at the 2013 HCA Conference (Fairmont Hotel; Booth #32) and will be featured in the HCA Technology Showcase on January 9.

Fulfilling the Promise of Phenotypic Screening
While HCS has become routine in drug discovery, the integration of HCS data and images into the data analysis workflow presents challenges. For example, maintaining different instruments and HCS data management systems and deploying separate image analysis solutions consumes time and resources. Additionally, this model often relies on manual workflows with inadequate image access and limitations in throughput or complexity, all of which results in lower productivity and potentially sub-optimal data analysis results. When HCS images are stored in isolated, instrument-specific image data management systems, there is little or no integration with a central-results data warehouse; relevant results are stored without a reference to the original image data.

Genedata Screener for HCS overcomes these workflow challenges. Simultaneously integrating with multiple HCS systems (e.g. PerkinElmer Columbus™ Image Data Management, Thermo Scientific Cellomics® Store database, Molecular Devices MDC Store™ Data Management, openBIS for HCS), Genedata Screener for HCS:

  • captures and stores all HCS data analysis images and image analysis results;
  • enables interactive definition and analysis of cell populations and the automatic calculation of cell-to-well aggregations;
  • unifies HCS data analysis workflow including efficient quality control;
  • gives instant access to HCS images all along the data analysis workflow; and
  • provides a stand-alone image viewer for downstream applications access to images, even across different geographies.

“With more than a decade of customer experience, best practices, and industry collaboration, Genedata Screener is the most innovative and powerful HCS solution on the market,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata, “and the solution’s ability to support phenotypic screening demonstrates how it is continually evolving to meet customer demands while advancing the discovery of novel therapies.”
