Imaging Cytometry Assay

Quantitative analysis of multicolor (multiplexed) labeled cells

image cytometry GRAPHS
Image cytometry biological assays
Biological assays enabled using the "Imaging Cytometry" analysis application of Athena image analysis software

Image Based Cytometry, Sub-Population Identification & Multi-Parametric Analysis

Segregate a heterogeneous mixture of cells into a variety of sub-populations as in FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorting)

Automated classification of color-based cellular sub-populations for each well of a micro-well plate

Defining morphological features for each sub-population, including intracellular structures, using the high-resolution captured images

Suitable for live cell imaging – possibility to follow and to return to the sample over time to study changes in each sub-population.

Multiple visualization tools to present sub populations

Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH)

Quantitative cytometry and population tools applied to detect cells expressing XY chromosome combination.

Y Chromosome (red)
X Chromosome (green)
XY cells – mail (orange mask)
Not XY cells – (blue mask)


RNA FISH (20x magnification) in macrophages stimulated with innate immune agonists.

Nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue) while IL-10 (green) and TNFα (red) were stained by ViewRNA FISH.
