Improved deep-learning capabilities for fast, efficient image analysis

The Olympus scanR high-content screening (HCS) station provides fully automated image acquisition and data analysis, and now benefits from the introduction of version 3.3.

Version 3.3 improves the deep-learning technology’s capabilities to reliably separate objects in biological samples using instance segmentation, the ability to detect and delineate distinct objects of interest in an image.

Using a self-learning microscopy approach, the scanR system’s AI automatically analyses data in an assay-based workflow. The deep-learning technology can detect cells, nuclei and subcellular objects, and extract features from a list of over 100 object parameters. Version 3.3 significantly improves the deep learning object segmentation capabilities to more accurately segment difficult-to-distinguish objects, such as cells or nuclei that are very close together, as in cell colonies or tissue.

In addition to tools to develop neural network models for specific applications, scanR version 3.3 comes with pretrained neural network models for nuclei and cells. These can be used in a broad range of standard applications, including the ability to distinguish between confluent cells and dense nuclei, eliminating the time to train the neural network.

Version 3.3 of the scanR software also includes a well-plate calibration assistant that makes it fast and simple to calibrate a new well plate for the system. In addition, a new level of licence enables collaborators to open, review and re-gate scanR analysis files for easier results sharing.
