High Content Imaging Core

The ArrayScan is a high content imaging instrument that offers a wide set of functions for the high and medium throughput study of cell biology in a single modular platform. From the development of high-content assay, through basic cell biology research to systems biology and drug discovery and toxicology, this system has been engineered to deliver robust data with minimal effort and with the fastest "image-to-answer" currently available.

The high content imaging core is composed of two separate ArrayScan VTI systems, both equipped with an Orbitor RS, capable of processing of up to 100 plates (fully automated). Each system has their own specific modules (live cell chamber, confocal unit, apotome, etc), enabling a wide variety of applications. With a 7-channel LED light engine and the HCS Studio software, the ArrayScan VTI allows the creation of personalized analyses suited for any experimental design.
