Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of Tube Formation images is ensured by our WimTube online automated solution.
It is engineered with flexibility to adapt to images covering the whole range of microscopy imaging techniques with the aim to provide you with accurate, meaningful results.
You take the images, we do the rest.
The formation of new blood vessels is essential for the growth, development and regeneration of biological systems as well as in certain diseases like cancer, where tumors stimulate this process in order to support their growth. The study of how drug compounds can promote or inhibit it is therefore essential in the research work related to these processes.
The tube formation assay studies blood vessel development by measuring the angiogenesis stage of endothelial cell reorganization to form tube or capillary-like structures, usually using an extracellular matrix such as Matrigel® (BD) as support. The major advantage of this assay is that it offers the opportunity to monitor angiogenic behavior over time and therefore enables the estimation of time dependent effects on the neovascularization.
More than 2000 researchers already use WimTube in their research work. These are the main reasons why they choose it:
For every image that you upload, WimTube will generate an output CSV sheet file that will give you insight into the tube formation process 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 WimTube provides you with:
