Image analysis services and software development for biomedical research
QuantaCell is a service provider (CRO, contract research organization not a clinical research organization!) specialized in life sciences located in Pessac (near Bordeaux), France, Europe. Its is a research and development outsourcing company with expertise in image analysis and biology. Its goal is to offer tailored software solutions and services for biological imaging from the level of the organ down to the cellular and molecular level.
What can QuantaCell do for you?
Help you save time by speeding up your image analysis and automating your experiments
- Transform qualitative analyses into quantitative measurements by automating manual steps
- Generate automatic chains of all steps in image processing or data analysis (filtering, segmentation, machine learning, deep learning, statistical testing)
- Utilize extremely rapid and reliable tools (C++, CUDA, multi-threading)
Improve the quality of your results to gain precision and to augment the robustness of measurements
- Utilize tools that are suitable for your data and biological models
- Visualize your results with tools that are dedicated to guarantee error-free returns
- Test the impact of artifacts and limit instrument-based biases
- Validate the robustness and reproducibility of your experiments
Manage your DataBases to cross-search your data and visualize sensitive information
- Cross-searches between the data of your lab and public databases (big data analysis)
- Compile thousands of experiments to detect the most significant results
- Find or recover the information that is hidden in the mass of data, by use of tools that are adapted to visualization and tools for statistical learning.
- Combine and visualize heterogenic data (bio-informatics, proteomics, genomics, clinical data, medical data) and obtained by different technologies (imaging, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, microarray)
Improve the use of your imaging systems to obtain the most quantitative results
- Calibrate microscopes (imaging devices, bioimaging) and augment the contrast for optimal quantification
- Detect and correct instrumental errors (blur, spatial distortion, drift)
- Integrate image analysis software in the process of image acquisition
Develop tailored software solutions
- Program simple and ergonomic user interfaces
- Value data and important results
- Utilize modern frameworks (.NET, QT, Java) for fluent graphic interfaces
- Integrate the most innovative and recent image analysis algorithms statistics in the software
- Follow and validate according to ISO-13485 (medical devices), COFRAC, CE mark conformity, GLP (good laboratory practice)
