Applications of High Content Analysis in Pharmaceutical and Consumer Products Safety Testing
High content analysis (HCA) has emerged as an important technology for in vitro toxicity testing. Using automated microscopy, image analysis, and primary or immortalized cells, HCA offers superior performance to animal testing at a fraction of the expense. This technology is applied to screening for drug/chemical induced liver injury, reproductive toxicity, genetic toxicity, neurotoxicity and immunotoxicity. This seminar will define the technology, detail the validation of several assays and present case.
