Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of lipid droplets assay images is ensured by our WimLipid web-based 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.
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.
There are many advantages of adding WimLipid to your workflow:
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:
Besides, a detailed control image is generated in order to help you to visualize the parameters that WimLipid provides you with:
