Mark II is designed to be a general-purpose platform for cellular studies and
is not limited to the illustrated applications. The ImageStreamX Mark II
utilizes the same dyes and markers employed in microscopy and flow cytometry
and can perform virtually any standard flow cytometry assay with the added
value of visual confirmation.
Some featured applications
can be performed using the ImageStreamX Mark II and its powerful companion
IDEAS® image analysis software. Over 250 peer reviewed publications incorporate
IDEAS - Image
Data that is
collected by ImageStream is analyzed using IDEAS software. In IDEAS, population
statistics and imagery are completely integrated. Every dot on a scatter plot
links directly to a cell's images - click on the dot and you'll see the
corresponding cell. With its virtual sorting capability, IDEAS will show you
all the images of a cell population you define.
The IDEAS software
package is extraordinarily robust, providing hundreds of features for
every cell. IDEAS also allows you to create almost any new feature you may need
from the basic feature set.
Once you've created
an analysis scheme in IDEAS, you can save it as a template for batch processing
future experiments or to share with your colleagues.
