PerkinElmer and Accelrys form software collaboration

Software to enable researchers detection and analysis of single cells via HCS technologies

By CBR Staff Writer

US-based PerkinElmer has formed a cellular imaging and analysis software collaboration with Accelrys, a provider of scientific business intelligence software and services.

According to PerkinElmer, the collaboration is aimed at providing researchers with unprecedented capabilities for the detection and analysis of single cells via high content screening (HCS) technologies, for faster and better outcomes in identifying cellular markers associated with human health and disease. To that end, the companies have integrated PerkinElmer’s Columbus image data management system for HCS with Accelrys’s Pipeline Pilot data analysis and reporting platform.

In order to allow a comprehensive single cell based image analysis for researchers, PerkinElmer’s Columbus software will provide the detailed images containing single cells as well as large amounts of cell level data, and Accelrys’s Pipeline Pilot platform will furnish intelligent algorithms and image analysis data transfer capability.

Frank Brown, chief science officer at Accelrys, said: This collaboration is a compelling new approach to bring the benefits of HCS to a single cell level. The outcome of this integration will enable scientists to apply all the data and statistical analysis they are used to seeing from a well based level to a single cell level, allowing deeper understanding of cellular processes.

PerkinElmer is a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment. Accelrys, headquartered in San Diego, develops scientific business intelligence software and services for the life sciences, energy, chemicals, aerospace, and consumer products industries.
