We are very grateful that we have received funding from several organizations. These grants supported the development of the CytoSMART Omni and the corresponding analysis tools:
The Operational Program Zuid-Nederland (OPZuid) from the European Fund for Regional Development (EFRO; Europees Fonds voor Regionale Ontwikkeling) supported the development of Omni Analysis, the image analysis software complementing the CytoSMART Omni. During the project period, our image analysis specialists have worked on algorithms to analyse confluence, migration (scratch assays) and colony detection. These algorithms are the first ones that have entered a library of algorithms to analyze the stitched images obtained with the CytoSMART Omni. After the end of the project, new image analysis algorithms will be added to the algorithm library.
