Detail Information

Configuration Requirements:

  • Support for 96-and 384-well plates
  • Integrated high content screening (HCS) and multimode reader
  • Flexible liquid handling, supporting use of single-use pipette tips
  • Solutions for plate shaking and centrifugation
  • Throughput in line with reader capabilities (i.e. robotics and liquid handling must not be throughput limiting)
  • Advanced error handling
  • 24-hour operations
  • HEPA filtration hood for product protection
  • Option to use devices offline

Cellular assays and especially those utilizing high content readout and analysis techniques offer numerous advantages over biochemical screening methods. High-throughput imaging readers like our Opera® high content screening system, in conjunction with dedicated automation and liquid handling components enables researchers to deploy high content screening techniques at much earlier stages of the drug discovery process than previously possible.

For an academic customer we built a flexible cellular screening workstation to support both, high content and regular cellular assays via an integrated Opera high content screening system and EnVision® reader. This compact explorer G3 integrated workstation houses a variety of liquid handling components including a centrifuge and a shaker grouped around a 6-axis robotic arm. To increase throughput and to feed the Opera high content screening system with ready-to screen plates while simultaneously carrying out a different screening run the Opera high content screening system was connected to a four position turntable with adjacent 300+ capacity plate storage unit.

This integrated, turnkey system was able to prepare and read 40 assay plates in less than 8 hours, including the preparation of an aqueous dilution plate.
