Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of colony forming cell (CFC) assays is ensured by our WimColony online automated solution.
WimColony works by detecting each individual cell and colony, followed by the extraction of their identifying characteristics in order to provide reliable data about the colony population and its development.
You take the images, we do the rest.
The colony forming cell assay is a frequently used technique to measure the ability of cells to grow, monitoring the formation of colonies from an initially known cell population. The formation of colonies requires intensive division of the original cells, so the quantification of the number of cells or colonies throughout the experiment constitutes the perfect indicator of the growth potential of cells. As a result, the CFC has become an assay of extensive use in cancer research to study the effects of drugs and the ionizing radiation therapy in carcinogenic cell proliferation.
The observation of the colony forming process and development by the human eye is a practical method to estimate the overall evolution of the assay, but an ineffective way to accurately compare the proliferation activity of large cell culture populations or multiple assays at a time. WimColony is specially made to provide you the objective data you need to make the most of your research.
There are many advantages of adding WimColony to your workflow:
For every image that you upload, WimColony will generate an output CSV sheet file that will give you insight into the outcome of your experiment. Some of the measurements included are:
Besides, a detailed control image is generated in order to help you to visualize the parameters that WimColony provides you with:
