The Large Scale Digital Cell Analysis System (LSDCAS)

An Extensible, Automated System for High Throughput Screening
and Non-Perturbing Optical Single Cell Analysis

LSDCAS data acquisition uses a computer-controlled microscope.

LSDCAS is a research tool located in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering, at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.

LSDCAS was developed by Dr. Michael Mackey and Dr. Fiorenza Ianzini from 1995 to 2013 as a core technology for scientific discovery in cellular biophysics. LSDCAS has been used in projects in cancer research and pharmacology, and the technology developed for LSDCAS has been used to develop models of cell motion, novel techniques for cell segmentation, and have also been contributed to open-source microscopy analysis toolkits.

The analytical capabilities of LSDCAS include automatic cell motility analysis, and the detection and analysis of cell events such as normal and abnormal cell division and cell death. LSDCAS also provides automatic assays for cell proliferation and wound healing.
