High throughput and high content screening of compounds that influence cell invasion can be easily performed as you can see in this exemple: source: http://being-bioreactive.com/2014/04/09/a-96-well-invasion-assay-compatible-with-high-content-screening/
The 11th High Content Analysis conference will take place at the Fira Barcelona, on May 14th & 15th 2014 and Julian will be present in this event. Thus don’t hesitate to meet him during this event! Have a nice congress! Source: http://selectbiosciences.com/conferences/index.aspx?conf=HCA2014
As oncology is the first used in HCS, Perkin Elmer has developped new High Content Analysis Platform dedicted for Cancer Applications as you can see below: source: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20140407005786/en/Content-Screening-Platform-Advances-High-Content-Analysis-Cancer#.U1OZnPl_tTw
“A new high-content screening software platform enables cancer researchers to uncover more about basic and advanced cellular function to accelerate cell-based research. The Thermo Scientific HCS Studio 2.0 is a high-content quantitative imaging and analysis software platform for a range of cancer research applications, including angiogenesis and migration/invasion, as well Read more…
Non-invasive cancer- diagnosis: a new application for HCS HCS was first used in pharmaceutical industry to develop a new way to find new drugs. But this technology is extended since few years in other domains, as diagnosis! source: http://www.int.laborundmore.de/news/694729/A-new-application-for-microscopy.html
“While classical screens with a single readout only allow you to quantify the measured effect, high-content screens promise more: Additional phenotypic changes can be observed and also quantified, allowing in principle a distinction of the chemical responses into three classes: similar to untreated cells; similar to control-treated cells; or dissimilar Read more…
Using automated high content screening and sophisticated computational modeling, the researchers’ screening and analysis of tens of millions of genetically manipulated cells helped them identify more than a dozen genes that influence cell shape.
