Microscopy imaging for cell counting through to complex image analysis

The CellReporterXpress Automated Image Acquisition and Analysis Software works with the ImageXpress® Pico systems. It has a simple, easy-to-learn interface for performing quantitative analysis on images acquired from automated microscopy. The software enables distributed analysis of images for increased throughput and is ideal for scaling your digital microscopy imaging with slides or microplates. An icon-driven, linear workflow with a range of predefined protocols provides a streamlined user experience. With features such as Digital Confocal 2D on-the-fly image deconvolution, and Live Preview advanced region of interest identification, you can save time while improving assay quality and significantly increasing resolution.

  • Analyze during acquisition

    Analyze during acquisition

    Reduce the time to run experiments with our integrated on-the-fly image analysis capability, allowing you to view numeric data during acquisition. In addition, our Digital Confocal option performs 2D image deconvolution in real-time allowing you to significantly increase resolution and assay quality.

  • Protocols

    Simplify image analysis

    Predefined analysis protocols for label-free and fluorescence imaging provides you with the ability to quickly run common biological assays while still allowing you to create and save your own protocols. With optimized templates ranging from simple cell counting to complex neurite tracing, and including custom 2 and 3 lane Mimetas protocols, users no longer need to worry about adjusting complicated parameters or exporting to third-party software for robust analysis.

  • Visualize results with differently

    Visualize results with differently

    The software allows users to visualize their data in a variety of formats including whole plate, slide, or individual cell views. You can view populations of cells across the entire well in scatter plot, table, or histogram. In addition, the Live Preview function simplifies identification of regions of interest, letting users pan around the sample and interactively adjust focus with a virtual joystick, saving time and effort.

  • Region selection for acquisition

    Multiple unique positions within a well or slide can be selected to acquire and analyze only key areas of interest.

  • Label-free analysis

    Automatically identifies objects in brightfield including small round cells, large cells, and beads.

  • Click-to-find feature

    This feature auto calculates object parameters based on user-selected cells of interest, simplifying analysis setup for cell counting and for cellular responses.

  • Side-by-side cell magnification

    Zoom or pan high-resolution images from whole well view down to cell level view. Simultaneously compare images from two wells.

  • Touch screen capability

    Exceptional usability and precise control is built-in whether using a personal computer or a tablet.

  • Browser-based software

    The ImageXpress Pico system can be controlled through a browser with data from any computer on the user’s network via Chrome™ or Safari®.

Save time and reduce errors with preconfigured analysis protocols


Over 25 preconfigured analysis protocols ranging from simple cell counting to sophisticated neurite tracing analysis. With features like the click-to-find tool, analysis parameters can be optimized by simply clicking on a few cells that match specific criteria.
