Press Release Announces New IQbots for Quantitative Image Analysis of Cortical Neurons and Astrocytes

Posted on: 04 Oct 16, an online automated platform for quantitative preclinical image analysis created by ImageIQ, today announced the addition of a trio of neuroscience algorithms to its publicly available collection of automated image analysis and documentation research tools: 1) Cortical Neuron Analysis IQbot, 2) Low Density Astrocyte Analysis IQbot, and 3) High Density Astrocyte Analysis IQbot. “IQbots” are tools for preclinical research imaging assays that deliver validated, comprehensive data that is objective and reproducible. Within every IQbot results package researchers receive complete data (e.g., quantitative databases, analysis overlays) and reference materials (e.g., methods protocols, video walkthroughs of output data, relevant citations, support for GLP compliance, validation records).

Each of these three IQbots is relevant to researchers interested in neurobiology (i.e., in vitro analysis of cells coming from the brain or spinal cord). The goal of the algorithms in their various forms is to identify in fluorescent images the extensions and other staining patterns in the neurons or astrocytes. For further detailed information, watch this 11-minute video on the Cortical Neuron and Astrocyte Analysis IQbots. software engineers are consistently building new IQbots. To prompt prioritization of a new or custom IQbot, researchers may submit requests to enter the IQbot Incubation Program.

About is an online quantitative image analysis research tool for discovery and preclinical research. Leveraging the benefits of secure cloud technology and ecommerce, provides validated and automated software-based image analysis. As a result, all nonclinical researchers may now take advantage of accurate, reproducible, objective imaging analytics that are both affordable and accessible.’s preclinical services are backed by the expertise of ImageIQ, Inc., a full service Imaging Contract Research Organization. ImageIQ is a Cleveland Clinic Innovations Company.
