Looking for beta testers of our cell tracking software:

We look for partners that can contribute as beta-testers as users of our cell tracking software. We can make a cell visualization product from your live cell video. This includes the ability to browse your video in different ways such as locating special cells, find cells in the video by clicking on a pedigree tree, locate "relative cells" (see screenshot below where four circles mark individual cells with a common second generation ancestor), you get a large set of pedigree trees on a "web solution" which sorts the trees according actual criteria (for example "tree size"). You are supposed to provide us video records of mono-layer cells. You are also supposed patiently to comment on a user manual which we work on and in this way contribute to it. We have to agree on the details for this work. If this message is actual for you, please contact us.

Here is an illustration (screenshot) from the use of Kobio_Celltrack (click to make it larger):

News :

Example from multi-tracking of cells using Kobio Celltrack. The image recording was made by Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader from Biotek. 10 hours tracking of many BC3H1 cells (left) + one of these cells dividing after almost 9 hours (right):

Video clip showing vacuoles passing from mother cell to her daughters through cell division:

These cells are A549 lung cancer cells exposed to 1000 nM yessotoxin. We prepared this video when tracking the cells for the work https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fonc.2018.00260/full. We used 96-multiwell black microplates # 655090 from Greiner Bio-One IT to plate the A549 cells for recording with Cytation 5.
