Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of cytotoxicity assay images is ensured by our WimCytotoxicity online automated solution.
It is engineered to accurately determine cell viability in phase contrast or fluorescence images of cell cultures with a fluorescent apoptotic marker.
You take the images, we do the rest.
Cytotoxicity assays are a crucial aspect in research studies where the use of agents with a disruptive potential on cells can compromise the viability of the cell population resulting in unwanted cytotoxic effects, e.g. the drug development process. They are also a key tool to screen therapeutic compounds in the development of cancer treatments.
The cytotoxic effects of toxic agents can be easily observed using fluorescent dyes, such as Trypan Blue or Propidium Iodide. However, objective quantification of the affected cell population in the large amount images that this assay generates can become a tedious and difficult task when done manually.
WimCytotoxicity helps researchers perform this task with high precision and accuracy. The quantification is based on the detection of the whole cell population and the identification inside it of the cells affected by the cytotoxic agents through the apoptotic marker. This recognition is possible thanks to our fast high-end image processing algorithms, which allow accurate analysis of cell cultures in record time.
There are many advantages of adding WimCytotoxicity to your workflow:
For every image that you upload, WimCytotoxicity 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 WimCytotoxicity provides you with:
