The ability to perform high-content screening in a high-throughput fashion is routinely limited to cell lines and other explant model systems, however, there is a risk that these may not be fully representative of the in vivo environment due to culture adaptation or the lack of multi-lineage cell types. The ability to gather high-content data directly from primary samples however, both direct from blood and bone marrow or from metastasized cancers, without cell outgrowth or selection in a method amenable to laboratory automation can be a more direct system. Further, by combining imaging of these primary sample with an analysis pipelines robust to micro-aggregates, vastly different cell shapes and sizes, and that can ultimately harness the features from each cell can become a powerful means to study drug response in a variety of indications using model systems directly derived from the patient. This methodology has been used to prioritize therapy for late-state patients with hematological cancers in a basket trial (Snijder & Vladimer et al 2017,Lancet Hematology), has been integrated with genetic data to further uncover biological understanding and clinical synergy options (Schmidl & Vladimer et al 2019, Nat Chem Bio), and is now robustly being tested in technical validation studies for some indications to understand its potential use as an in vitro diagnostic.
