Objective, reproducible, and precise quantification of wound healing assay images is ensured by our WimScratch online automated solution.

It is engineered to monitor the wound closing process by detecting cell and wound area, with the aim to provide you with time and spatial results of your assay in seconds.

You take the images, we do the rest.

About Wound Healing

As one of the most commonly used assays in the field of cell migration, the wound healing or scratch assay is conducted in order to study directional cell migration and cell-cell interaction in vitro. The basic procedure involves creating a "wound" in a cell monolayer, capturing images at regular intervals during cell migration until wound closure is reached, and the analysis of the image sequence in order to quantify the migration characteristics of these cells.

WimScratch, the Wound Healing Assay Image Analysis solution, is designed to generate accurate and reproducible analysis results for wound healing assays, both for phase contrast and fluorescence images. The online automated solution generates results within seconds without the need to buy any extra software or hardware. Simply upload your assay images to our analysis platform and instantly receive detailed quantification for them.

Results that make a difference

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

  • Cell covered area
  • Overview chart
  • Center piece approximation
  • Speed of closure
  • Acceleration characteristics

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