Hamamatsu Corp. has unveiled an imaging-based plate reader, the
FDSSμCELL, designed for drug discovery instrumentation, and compound screening
and kinetic cell-based assay development applications, including ion channel and
G-protein-coupled receptor research in the pharmaceutical, clinical research organization
and biotech industries. The device is optimized for fluorescent kinetic assays using
calcium and membrane potential dyes such as Fluo 4 and fluoroamphetamine. Dispensing
is available in either a 96- or 384-well format with easily exchangeable heads.
Software enables users to quickly set assay parameters in a single protocol, which
can later be transferred to an FDSS7000 for further screening.
