Challenges for Customers
- Elucidation of life phenomenon by observing stem cells instead of human body.
- Elucidation of the cause of disease and development of therapy by observing cell models simulating disease states
The Yokogawa Solution
CellVoyager and CQ1 that include CSU series enable various evaluation experiments using cultured cells automatically. CellVoyager and CQ 1 inherit the high-speed shooting function of the CSU series, and it is also suitable for evaluating high-speed phenomena. In addition, CellVoyager and CQ1 have an incubator (cell culture environment), which allows cell-friendly long-term live-cell observation culturing cells and time-series evaluation with cultured cells. Furthermore, by combining CellVoyager, CQ 1 with CellPathfinder which is image analysis software, it is possible to automatically extract feature amount from observed image. Especially by using machine learning function, image analysis can be performed with a simple and intuitive operation.
Position of Life Science Products
Contributing to value chain of biology & pharmaceutical from basic research to pre-clinical research.
The Yokogawa Solution
Confocal scanner unit CSU series enable 3D observation of the cells in detail and dynamics of organelles inside cells. Since the CSU series is capable of high-speed shooting, it is also suitable for observing high-speed life phenomena. In addition, the CSU series is a multi-point confocal method which is extremely gentle to cells, best suitable for long-term live cell observation.
For pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic developers
- Evaluation of drug efficacy and toxicity by using cultured cells instead of expensive animal experiments
- Evaluation experiments using cell clusters (spheroids, organoids), which have been extensively researched in recent years
- Evaluation of effects of functional foods on cells
- Efficacy evaluation of cosmetics by using 3D skin model
- Confirmation of stem cell differentiation state and quality evaluation for regenerative medicine

In this webinar, Professor Jonny Sexton discusses a pipeline, developed in the Sexton lab, for the quantitative high-throughput image-based screening of SARS-CoV-2 infection to identify potential antiviral mechanisms and allow selection of appropriate drug combinations to treat COVID-19. This webinar presents evidence that morphological profiling can robustly identify new potential therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2 infection as well as drugs that potentially worsen COVID-19 outcomes.
