High accuracy confluency measurements in cell line development using Solentim’s ICON instrument: New Application Note

Confluency, the percent area of a microplate well visually covered by cells, is used in cell biology as a trigger for key events including initiation of cell-based assays, transfection and passaging. An artificial neural network is a scalable, adaptive structure that when compared to traditional image processing methods has the advantages of being able to adapt to unforeseen scenarios and learn from experience.

In this new application note, Solentim describes a novel neural network approach to confluency detection using the ICON™ instrument. ICON is our new benchtop instrument, that offers rapid, high accuracy confluency measurements using artificial intelligence algorithms, detecting the area covered by cells but ignoring well walls, well scratches and cell debris.
