High-content analysis reagents

Partner with us to take advantage of the expertise and reliability of our instruments, technology, as well as decades of experience in labeling and detection with Invitrogen Molecular Probes fluorescence reagents.

Explore how employing decades of experience in fluorescence imaging and Thermo Scientific high-content platforms develops complementary Invitrogen HCS reagents with special considerations for the high-throughput workflow and automated imaging:

  • Cell and nuclear masks for automated demarcation
  • Robust functional probes for cell health interrogation
  • Flexible assay workflow for automated processing
  • Broad fluorophore choice for easy multiplexing
  • Validated on multiple imaging platforms

Select from the reagents optimized for use with your HCS platform:

Fibroblasts were stained with Hoechst 33342 (blue), Histone H3 (white), and Phalloidin (red) then imaged using confocal imaging with CellInsight CX7 LZR and 70 micron confocal pinhole diameter.

Other cell structure and segmentation tools

Clear identification of cell and nuclear boundaries in automated imaging requires fiducial markers that will label cellular structures robustly and reproducibly. Cell masks are designed specifically for automated imaging. Invitrogen Molecular Probes cell structure labels are widely used in microscope imaging and HCS.
