Special Requirements?



  • Quantification of tube formation assays
  • Image analysis and data interpretation of angiogenesis experiments
  • Investigation of tube formation inhibition

Tube Formation Image Analysis is a crucial step in angiogenesis assays. ACAS Tube Formation is an analysis solution to quantitatively evaluate the generation of cellular networks.

First, use the ?-Slide Angiogenesis or the ?-Plate Angiogenesis 96 well to perform your tube formation experiments and acquire microscopy images. After acquiring the microscopy images, simply upload your data into your ACAS account and start the analysis job. Within minutes, you will receive a detailed report for download and further evaluation.

Reports with Analyzed Data Contain:

  • Loop count
  • Average loop area
  • Average tube length (per loop)
  • Total tube length
  • Branch count

ACAS ? Automated Cellular Analysis System: The Fully Automated Image Analyzer

The ACAS system dramatically increases lab throughput by eliminating hundreds of hours of manual image analysis. Upload your images or time-lapse movies directly from your microscope, then choose an assay module from our portfolio. Within a few minutes, you will receive the complete reports. ACAS is constantly expanding its range of image analysis. If you have any new analysis ideas, please contact us with your request and image data so that we can develop new assay modules.

ACAS Benefits:

  • Free account with 15 free analysis jobs every month – high quality image analysis for free
  • Analysis jobs work the same for single images and image stacks – more data for less money
  • Fully compatible with single image formats as well as videos and movies – more data for less money
  • Includes experimental management database – organization and overview over all your projects and experiments

Experimental Database

The infrastructure of the ACAS system allows the user to schedule and manage experiments and to store all experimental data, including the meta-data such as cell type, treatments, experimenter, etc. A modern user hierarchy with administrator and users allows for convenient access to the image data and the reports. This general infrastructure of ACAS is independent of the module that is used for analysis.

Powerful Image Analysis

Unlike other image analysis systems, no software must be purchased or licensed. Additionally, ACAS does not differentiate between single images and image stacks. Analyzing time lapse movies is now as inexpensive as analyzing a single image.

Massively Parallel Computational Engine

All ACAS hardware is equipped with the latest computing technology, which enables fast and consistent results within minutes. MetaVi Labs has developed their own image processing library, which is optimized for cellular analysis on a massively parallel hardware platform. The user data is secured on the ACAS server by Amazon Web Services.
