KoBio is a startup participating in experimental work on computational methods in biology. Contact

We can make a cell visualization product from your live cell video of mono-layer cells. 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" and more.

Here is an illustration (screenshot) from the use of Kobio_Celltrack (click to enlarge):

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.
