Abstract

The traditional method of measuring chlamydial growth in vitro, counting Chlamydiaceae inclusions by eye, is time-consuming and error prone. This paper describes a novel automated image analysis system suitable for high-throughput screening of novel anti-Chlamydiaceae compounds. The software, Inclusion Counter v3.0, is freely available in the public domain (http://www.image-analysis.co.uk).
