Unlocking Angiogenesis Insights

Quantify Blood Vessels in Chick Chorioallantoic Membrane Assay using IKOSA’s deep learning technology

Second International CAM Conference

5-6 February 2024

Having previously participated in and sponsored the 2022 conference organised by Prof. Regine Schneider-Stock, the Head of Experimental Tumorpathology, University Hospital Erlangen, we decided to continue this tradition in 2024.

We eagerly anticipate gaining insights into the field’s progress and collaborating with key scientists to share our latest developments, contributing to the advancement of research society.

Experts and key opinion leaders share their opinion

Prof. Dr. Silke Härteis

University of Regensburg, Germany

IKOSA provides a user-friendly premium software solution that meets high-quality standards at the same time. Thanks to it we have been able to bring our studies on the CAM Model a huge step ahead and we are eagerly looking forward to future joint projects.”

Prof. Domenico Ribatti

University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy

We present a reliable method to quantify angiogenic and anti-angiogenic processes in the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) that illuminate the mechanisms of vascular proliferation. Blood vessels on CAM-images can be efficiently analyzed with the IKOSA CAM Assay App to measure their total area, length, mean thickness, and the number of branching points.

Prof. Tiziana Annese

Università LUM Giuseppe Degennaro, Italy

We study angiogenesis induction and suppression through the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay. This assay involves quantifying CAM vasculature, including total area, length, mean thickness, and the number of branching points in blood vessels. These measurements can be conducted manually or through image processing techniques. Among these methods, we found the IKOSA CAM Assay application to be a valuable tool due to its efficiency and user-friendliness.
