Chemotaxis Image Analysis is a crucial aspect in many oncology related research areas. Manual acquisition and evaluation of 2D cell migration is time consuming and lacks in objectivity.
Wimasis has developed WimTaxis, a tool to quantitatively evaluate 2D chemotaxis and migration. This Image Analysis tool makes an automated analysis providing results fast without the need to get any extra hardware or software.
WimTaxis is suited for analyzing time-lapse videos from phase contrast and fluorescent microscopy techniques, which includes high-throughput conditions and videos with a low ‘signal to noise ratio’ or heterogeneous illumination
WimTaxis makes an accurate detection of both cell and bacteria movement in chemotaxis assays. It tracks cells and bacteria providing its trajectories along the video. Just choose the WimTaxis that best fits your assay needs, WimTaxis - Cell Tracking or WimTaxis - Bacteria Tracking, and get your analysis done fast and consistently.
Analysis data contain:
- Forward migration index (parallel and perpendicular)
- Cell/bacterium directionalities
- Cell/bacterium migration activity
