Our Motivation – Efficiency and Reproducibility
Research and development in life sciences like pharmacology, microbiology, virology and immunology demand fluorescence-based analysis of cells under the microscope. Therefore, various fluorescence stains are applied to image the different cell structures (cytoplasm, cell nucleus etc.).
The analysis and interpretation of such data sets, most of them very large with hundreds of images still is a time- and labor-intensive manual process. Insufficient reproducibility by subjective assessment and an evaluation depending on the form of the day can influence the interpretation and restrain the significance of results.
High data quality and reproducibility as well as efficient and economic analysis will also decide about success in research. At this point the Fraunhofer Institute IIS supports you with productive and customized software solutions for computer-assisted fluorescence evaluation.
