High-Content Screening

BioPhotonics
Jan 2011
Leica Microsystems GmbHRequest Info
 
Leica Microsystems has extended its automated high-content screening (HCS) solution to cover applications on confocal and wide-field fluorescence microscopy systems for primary and secondary screening. The HCS A package enables fast and efficient multiposition experiments – from automated image recording routines to complex multidimensional high-content-screening experiments with simultaneous image export for immediate analysis by external analysis software. A specially developed computer-aided microscopy interface enables the screening experiment to be remotely controlled from other software packages, rendering the system an efficient and flexible tool for applications including rare event detection. The starter packages contain simple processes such as automatic composition of separate images (mosaicing) and multiwell plate screening in 2- or 3-D.

GLOSSARY
fluorescence microscopy
Observation of samples using excitation produced fluorescence. A sample is placed within the excitation laser and the plane of observation is scanned. Emitted photons from the sample are filtered by a long pass dichroic optic and are detected and recorded for digital image reproduction. 
high-content screening
Also known as HCS, an analytical method designed to collect statistically relevant amounts of quantitative data on many parallel cell populations or processes within cells through the combination of microtiterplates, high-resolution imaging, automated microscopy, fluorescent or bright-field sensors and image analysis software.
