Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has unveiled the Thermo Scientific Cellomics Micronucleus v3.0 BioApplication—a new solution that uses a cell-based approach for a comprehensive assessment of genotoxicity. The Micronucleus BioApplication relies on the Thermo Scientific Cellomics ArrayScan VTI system, which comprises high-content screening instrumentation, informatics and reagent products, allowing researchers to more rapidly test multiple compounds to discover potential toxic effects on genetic material. This application provides a more reproducible method for compound screening at substantially lower labor costs than traditional manual approaches to micronuclei quantification.
