The High-Throughput Screening Core Technology Platform is used by biologists and chemists to automate tests using biological and chemical materials. This technology is used in drug discovery, toxicity studies, and cell biology research, and allows researchers to quickly automate the production of millions of chemical and biological tests.
This platform provides versatile high-throughput liquid handling capabilities for automation of laboratory protocols. The Bravo’s 96LT head provides fast and accurate pipetting across a wide range of volumes (1-250µl); its 9-plate deck accommodates a range of functionalities, while additional accessories are available to cover most laboratory workflows. These include:
This is an integrated screening platform with advanced laboratory automation technology for cell-based and whole organism (e.g., microbial, worm, and zebrafish) assays. The HTS platform facilitates the automation of most steps involved in high-throughput screening of small molecule or genomic (e.g., RNAi, CRISPR) libraries. These steps include mixing reagents with cells or whole organisms, sample incubation in controlled environments, and high-content imaging at multiple levels of magnification in both bright-field and multi-channel fluorescence modes.
Using a flexible robotic arm (F5 Robot), the platform integrates diverse modules:
