Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of lipid droplets assay images is ensured by our WimLipid online automated solution.

It is specifically engineered to analyze the proliferation, growth and distribution of the lipid droplets in your assay, providing reliable data such as the number of these organelles, their covered area and their statistical distribution of their areas.

You take the images, we do the rest.

Analyzing the lipid droplets assay

Lipid droplets are fundamental in regulating the storage of neutral lipids, which can be accessed according to metabolic request. But they do not only act as energy depots, as this dynamic organelles form part of many biological processes like cellular energy homeostasis and lipid metabolism. Therefore, the lipid droplets assay is widely used in the research of metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and atherosclerosis.

WimLipid uses as inputs brigthfield, phase contrast or fluorescence microscopy images of lipid droplets assay images. Optionally, cells can be stained with nuclear dyes (such as the DAPI or Hoechst), which will be helpful to provide extra parameters of the analysis.

Discover the benefits of using WimLipid

There are many advantages of adding WimLipid to your workflow:

  • It is easy to use, fast and automated. Just upload your images and get your results in minutes.
  • Just pay for your number of images, not a cent more. WimLipid is a pay-per-use service.
  • Takes objective measurements with precision and accuracy.
  • Suits for the reproducibility paradigm: same rules to measure the same kind of experiments.
  • Check your results from your Wimasis account anytime, anywhere. All you need is an Internet connection.

Results that make a difference

For every image that you upload, WimLipid will generate an output CSV sheet file that will give you insight into the outcome of your experiment. Some of the measurements included are:

  • Number of lipid droplets
  • Covered area by lipid droplets
  • Mean area
  • Distribution of areas in intervals
  • Number of lipid droplets and area per cell (only for nuclei stained samples).

Besides, a detailed control image is generated in order to help you to visualize the parameters that WimLipid provides you with:
