What is BeQuanti?
BeQuanti is a software package designed to automatically detect and quantify cell interaction underflow. It is the instrumental solution for research laboratories working on cell trafficking for basic research and drug discovery.
BeQuanti dramatically speeds up your research process performing fine detailed and reliable analysis of several cell adhesion parameters.
A 30 days trial version is available free of charge, both for Windows and Mac OS. Before using the software for the first time, we recommend you to watch the BeQuanti Quick Video Tutorial.
BeQuanti is optimized for parallel chamber under-flow settings and for phase contrast microscopy, independently of the flow direction. It is ideally suitable for multiple microfluidic under-flow experimental settings, such as the BioFlux™ Live Cell Imaging Systems. Capillary tube-derived data can also be analyzed.
BeQuanti is modular and customizable. Contact us for any specific requirements.
"Our LCTST lab collaborated to the development of BeQuanti to realize a novel bioinformatics tool useful to the leukocyte trafficking community. BeQuanti is implemented according to modern parameters of cell recognition and characterization.
The result is an integrated, easy to use, yet highly flexible bioinformatics environment allowing automatic comprehensive quantification of cell behavior under-flow"
Prof. C. Laudanna, MD, PhD, University of Verona, Laboratory of Cell Trafficking and Signal Transduction and the Center for Biomedical Computing
BeQuanti is designed to assist laboratories of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, universities and government research institutions in the study of cell trafficking and in particular phenomena related to the leukocyte recruitment.
Principle of Operation
BeQuanti is based on state-of-art techniques for video analysis and machine learning. An advanced pattern recognition engine is trained to detect, track and classify cells as efficiently as the human eye, in a context of continuous shape and position variation.
