Imaging Requirements for Faster Drug Development: Screening with
Higher Density Formats
Dr. Al Kolb, Packard Instrument Company (tentative)
Improved technology for imaging of cells and related targets is
having a dramatic impact on pharmaceutical research and development,
driven in part by the demand for greater speed, precision, and
automation. Novel strategies for labels, better software for image
enhancement and analysis, and progress integrating imaging with
other laboratory functions are being applied to a growing range of
applications. Advantages in such diverse segments as microscopy,
cytology, and cellular analysis, as well as more applied uses such as
assessment of gels and drug development screening, will be
discussed. All of these activities share a similar goal of rapidly
and correctly translating images into data that can be stored, used,
compared, and manipulated with as much ease and as little human
intervention as possible. These developments promise to have a
dramatic impact on laboratory productivity, and any research manager
involved in these segments should consider participating.
