Poster – In vitro dermocosmetology : high content analysis approach using human primary keratinocytes and fibroblasts

Cell biology is part of the R&D activity in dermocosmetology, as providers of active extracts or pure compounds have to demonstrate their efficacy and safety. At HCS Pharma, we are developing new dermocosmetology assays on relevant cellular models, like human primary keratinocytes and human primary fibroblasts, using our automated platform and high content analysis system.

Poster – High Content Screening of automated wound healing and cytotoxicity assays in 2D and 3D culture

To find anti-cancer drugs, different cellular modifications can be looked at: cell death effect on proliferating cells either in 2D culture or on spheroids (3D culture), anti-mitotic, anti-migration/invasion, anti-angiogenesis effects… Different assays can be performed to follow these different effects. High content screening is a multi-parametric technology allowing searching for poly-effects drugs.
