High Content Screening (HCS)-High Content Analysis (HCA) platforms are designed for exceptional resolution with subcellular, automated detection, and phenotyping with intact, fixed, or live cells.
Our high-content screening portfolio consists of Thermo Scientific CellInsight CX5, CX7 LED, and CX7 LZR HCS platforms and HCS Studio software are made to provide you cutting-edge images and high content imaging data in no time.
HCS/HCA was invented by and registered as a trademark of Cellomics, which is now part of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
- Using a combination of established technologies, the CellInsight HCS Platforms can help address both cellular-level intensity and morphological measurements.
- HCS platforms, powered by our proprietary HCS Studio quantitative analysis software saves time by performing simultaneous imaging with cell-level quantification and advanced statistics.
- This real-time analysis approach helps to assure immediate data availability post-scan and aids researchers in making informed decisions more quickly.
- Our HCS technology is one of the industry leaders, as supported by more than 2,000 peer-reviewed publications on over 30 validated assays.

Invitrogen HCA Onstage Incubator
Enable live-cell imaging and real-time quantitative analysis with our environmental control chamber. When combined with the Invitrogen High-Content Analysis (HCA) Onstage Incubation system, the CellInsight Platform is ideal for time-lapse imaging at high resolution and for 3D acquisition. The environmental chamber mimics both physiological and non-physiological conditions, making the system ideal for demanding hypoxia experiments in 3D cell models. These capabilities are complimented by HCS Studio Cell Analysis Software for increased statistical power.
Orbitor RS Microplate Mover
The CellInsight HCS Platforms can be equipped for automated high-throughput screening using the Orbitor RS plate handler. You can increase the processing capacity up to 80 plates with our automation solution. The HCS Studio software can directly operate the Orbitor instrument, eliminating the need for third-party software.
