Next Generation Image Analysis and Management

Signals Image Artist has powerful capabilities for processing, analyzing, storing, and sharing all your high-content screening and cell imaging data – so you can significantly cut your time to results.

  •  Fast image data processing and image analysis even for complex assays powered by high performance computing
  • Easy-to-use assay building blocks with integrated Artificial Intelligence (AI) that make advanced image analysis straightforward – now with improved segmentation and analysis capabilities for 3D cell applications
  • A central location to store all your image data with associated instrument metadata for an enduring picture of experiments
  • Compatible with all major high-content screening and cell imaging systems
  • Multi-user solution that can support your entire lab without compromising performance
  • Scalable data storage to expand with your labs needs over time
  • Seamless integration with PerkinElmer Opera Phenix® Plus and Operetta CLS™ high-content screening systems operated by Harmony® software, as well as Signals VitroVivo for profiling image data, hit selection, and more
  • NEW! The latest version is compatible with data from a broader range of systems including the Nexcelom from PerkinElmer Celigo® image cytometer
  • NEW! A wider range of cloud and on-premise options 

It is also part of our complete workflow solution for high-content screening that includes PhenoVue™ cellular imaging reagents, PhenoPlate™ imaging microplates, HCS instruments, image cytometers, software, and automation.

For All Your High-Content Screening and Cellular Imaging Data

High-content screening and cellular imaging experiments generate huge amounts of image data. With the latest applications such as phenotypic screening, cell painting, and 3D imaging which use more complex, physiologically-relevant disease models, the volume of data continues to grow.

To maximize all this valuable data, you need a powerful solution for image processing, management and storage, and for sharing data with colleagues.

Signals Image Artist allows you to bring together cell imaging data from a wide range of sources on a single software platform so that you can store, share, analyze, and re-analyze it seamlessly. 

Not only does it make managing image data easier for research scientists but also for your IT team. With cloud deployment options (such as AWS S3), your IT team have just one platform and installation to manage and store research image data which can easily be scaled. They can also have peace of mind with enhanced security for cloud deployments. 

    Image Analysis Designed for Biologists

    Whether you are performing phenotypic screening, cell painting, 3D imaging, live cell imaging, or more routine assays, Signals Image Artist is designed to make it easy for biologists to perform sophisticated image analysis without any coding experience.

    The software platform’s image analysis building blocks encapsulate many years of knowledge and expertise in cellular imaging and analysis - so that you can focus on the biology. By simply adding together building blocks such as “Find Nuclei” and “Calculate Cell Painting Properties”, users can quickly create image analysis protocols in just a few simple steps.

    Built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies...

    Allow users to train the software to develop image analysis algorithms. While other systems may require an image analysis expert to create an algorithm, Signals Image Artist uses proprietary machine-learning technology to make it easy for you to do it on your own. Using a learn-by-example approach, in just a few clicks segmented images can be classified quickly and easily.

    The latest version of the Signals Image Artist platform has been further optimized for 3D cell applications, with improved segmentation and analysis capabilities – so you can generate more accurate results than ever. 

    This is all powered by high performance computing, so you can get your answers faster.

    • Get started without extensive training
    • Measure complex and subtle phenotypic responses
    • Compare multiple samples, plates, or batches to quality check your results
    • Kinetic measurement capabilities to track cells, reveal changes in cell properties, and provide information on cell movement 
    • Use with Signals VitroVivo to perform screening data analysis and validation, QC analyses, calculate reliable normalization, multivariate hit stratification, dose response curves, and drug response profiling
