Assay protocols and automated analysis

High-content screening (HCS) or high-content analysis (HCA), reports quantitatively on parameters such as individual cell or organelle morphology and spatial distribution of targets. Invitrogen fluorescent reagents are the preferred tools for labeling and detection of cellular targets. Thermo Scientific HCS Studio Cell Analysis Software is used with images from EVOS FL Auto 2 or Thermo Scientific HCA platforms to help you combine those parameters and build applications that answer complex biological questions.
