High content screening from a single source – KIT spin-off ACQUIFER AG offers a platform for image based life science research

Dr. Urban Liebel und Thomas Schurr

To study complex biomedical questions extensive screening experiments are necessary. In the research of widespread diseases, such as cancer or Alzheimer’s, a very high number of samples are studied under fully automated microscopes. However, on a global scale hardly any laboratories have the complete equipment and resources of interdisciplinary employees which are necessary for this. Biological methods, robot supported laboratory automation, intelligent microscopes, very large amounts of data, automatic image evaluation, and secure data exchange with other laboratories are always individual challenges. ACQUIFER AG offers a cost efficient overall solution for this.
