Flow Imaging Microscopy (FIM) Coupled with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) Demonstrates Reliable Method to Characterize and Identify Impurities in Cell Based Medicinal Products (CBMPs)

Cell-based medicinal products (CBMPs) are gaining importance as therapeutic treatments for many life-threatening diseases. This study was designed to develop a method to characterize CBMPs using flow imaging microscopy (FIM) for the detection, quantification, and characterization of subvisible particulate impurities.  Recently, FIM has been applied to study cell viability and confluency in cell culture as well as quality of CBMPs. Comprehensive particle characterization can be limited when using the morphological parameters derived from the embedded software due to the complexity of CBMPs, which may consist of multiple particulate populations of highly heterogeneous morphologies.

An Update on the Tara Ocean Project

The Tara Ocean Foundation, based in France, has mounted a collective effort to study the effect of climate change on the world's oceans. Beginning in 2004, they have launched 11 expeditions that have spanned the globe. According to the Tara Oceans Foundation, the project "has developed an open, innovative Ocean science that will enable us to predict, anticipate and better manage tomorrow’s climate risks. We use high-level scientific expertise to raise awareness and educate young people, mobilize policy makers at the highest level, and enable emerging and developing countries to access the latest knowledge about the Ocean."

At Home with the FlowCam in the COVID-19 Era

These past few months we have all had to adjust to a new normal. For some that means risking their lives to provide essential services to the public, or doing their best to follow social-distancing rules in the lab or office. For others that means sitting at home with our laptops on our couches and getting our work done in isolation, or with children at our feet. Working from home is a unique challenge for scientists whose work requires more than just a screen and an internet connection.
