High Content Screening Services

The Facility offers a flexible array of High Content Screening services ranging from instrument training and access through to the performance of entire siRNA library screens.

High Content Screening enables:

  • Unbiased collection of fluorescent images
  • Image analysis to measure spatial, morphological and intensity changes
  • Analysis of large sample sizes
  • High throughput formats (96/384 well)

Many fluorescent cell-based assays can be adapted to High Content to enable automated quantitation and multiplexing of cellular assays.

High Content Screening Services include:

siRNA screens
