PerkinElmer launches Columbus 2.3 data storage and analysis system

12th January 2012

PerkinElmer has introduced its new Columbus 2.3 image data storage and analysis system, for use by researchers in the life science sector.

The new Columbus 2.3 platform is being introduced at the High Content Analysis Conference in San Francisco, in order to showcase its improved capabilities and high-speed applications.

Using the new system, high content analysis can be carried out on a single powerful platform, from image analysis through to secondary analysis.

Among its merits are its improved morphology analysis capabilities, shortened high content analysis workflows and comprehensive secondary analysis capabilities, allowing it to be used in the selective assessment of small interfering RNA molecules.

Researchers in fields such as oncology, stem cells, predictive toxicity and neuroscience are expected to be able to benefit from using the device.

Achim von Leoprechting, vice-president and general manager for in-vitro solutions at PerkinElmer, said: "The Columbus system provides researchers with a single solution for high content analysis that is designed to enable analysis of data from all major HCS systems in a consistent way and compare the cellular parameters."

This comes after the company launched the Vectra 2 automated slide imaging system last month, for the identification and validation of new drug targets.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801263286-ADNFCR
