High Content Analysis CellVoyager

Yokogawa’s high-content analysis systems (HCA), also known as high-content screening systems (HCS), address a range of research applications from basic science to drug discovery screening.
Paired with our advanced analysis software, our HCA systems provide high quality 3D imaging for enhanced live cell analysis.
High content analysis (HCA) identifies the phnotype or target reaction of small morecules, peptides, RNAi, drug cocktail or, anitbody.
Based on high-resolution microscopic images, high content analysis (HCA) enables you to detect cellular phenotypic changes at a molecular level, so the technology can be utilized as a powerful tool to study effects of physiologically active substances, such as compounds, siRNA, peptides and antibodies, on cultured cells, tissue samples and whole organisms, like zebrafish.

CellVoyager CV8000 is the most advanced high-content screening system. The improved built-in incubator lets you analyze extended live cell responses. With its expandability, 4 cameras, 5 lasers and an optional built-in pipettor, the system permits increasingly complex assay development and high-content screening.

The CQ1 provides the highest quality confocal images and extended live cell imaging in a space-saving benchtop design. 

With powerful machine learning functions, our analysis software suite provides researchers with advanced insights into their HCA experiments such as label-free analysis.

Confocal imagers with powerful analysis software

Our high content analysis (HCA) systems are the best solutions for a range of research applications from basic science to drug discovery screening.

High Content Analysis (HCA)

High-content analysis is a principle methodology for so-called phenotypic screening in drug discovery and development process. Assessing a vast number of compounds is time consuming, therefore, acquiring a large number of high resolution cellular images with fast scanning speed is critically important for drug screening. Yokogawa high-content analysis imagers have balanced these generally conflicting requirements at high level of perfomance. The core technology, the microlens-ehananced dual Nipokow disk in Yokogawa Confocall Scanner or Confocal Spinning disc Unit (CSU), makes it possible to capture high quality images with remarkably short aquisition time.
In addition to the image aqcisition unit, precisely controled fast moving automated stage chamber is also an essensial component of our imaging systems. Monolayer fixed cell samples have been commonly used in drug screening. However, cellular environments in such fixed 2D samples are quite different from those of actual live systems, and the divergence often causes signficant discrepancy between experimental results and what observed in real oganisms.

Thses days, using 3D samples such as spheroids and organoids, and live cell samples to mimic realistic cellular environment are becoming more and more popular due to cell culture technology development. Yokogawa CSU is renowned in microscopy field not only for the high image quality and fast capturing speed, but also for the live cell friendliness. Our high-content confocal imaging systems based on the CSU are the ideal solution for drug screening using elaborated 3D and live cell assay systems as well as 2D fixed samples. User friendly high content analysis software CellPathfinder, with its versitile functionalities, powerfully supports the analysis of various phnotype changes and target reaction. It also has state-of-the-art machine learning and deep learning function for complexed sample analysis. All the technologies are packed into the Yokogawa high-content analysis system!

Overview:

The CQ1 confocal image acquisition mechanism with the distinctive CSU® unit has a function to sequentially acquire fine cell images along the Z-axis and capture information from the entire thickness of
cells which include heterogenic populations of various cell cycle stages. In addition, saved digital images can be useful for precise observation and analysis of spatial distribution of intracellular molecules.
The CQ1 capability to seamlessly analyze images and obtain data for things such as cell population statistics to individual cell morphology will provide benefits for both basic research and drug discovery
targetingM-cell cycle phase.
