Genedata, a leading provider of in-silico solutions for pharmaceutical R&D and related life sciences, today announced the release of Genedata Screener® 7.0, the latest version of its open and scalable enterprise solution for high throughput screening (HTS) and high content screening (HCS) analysis. Screener 7.0 combines an enterprise-wide assay data management platform with high-performance processing workflows and flexible analysis tools and provides access to high content screening-specific functionality.
Screener 7.0 can be easily integrated with any plate-based high content screening (HCS) instrument or image analysis software, including image databases via the HCS Image API. Currently it is fully compatible with the Thermo Scientific Cellomics Store image management system and integration with additional platform technology providers will follow.
Other features improve Screener’s support of complex, multiplexed assay formats and technologies, such as HCS, label-free and multiplex target assays. Data from multiple read-outs can easily be compared and combined both visually and statistically, in scatter and distribution plots, statistical tables, and user-definable calculations across read-outs. New functionality also enables the consistent generation of hit lists from such assays, exploiting their multiple read-outs in a concise fashion, documenting the criteria applied and managing the results centrally for shared access.
“Genedata Screener has a history of providing the most statistically sound processing of extremely large and complex data sets and yet retains a very user-friendly interface for visualization, management and review,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “As we enter the realm of increasingly complex time series and high content assay data, Genedata is proud to remain at the forefront of technology innovation.”
