High-content analyses for research microscopes
Article Type: New materials and equipment From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 55, Issue 2.
For the first time, any researcher can upgrade their Zeiss microscope to an HCA system at a fraction of the price of existing high-content screening systems. High-content screening has accelerated drug discovery in the pharmaceutical industry for years. Leveraging the power of research microcopy for high- content analyses promises to enable precise assay development and hit qualification for the screening community while reducing the cost of access for academics that need greater flexibility when imaging and analysing biological targets.
“We are excited about pairing high content analyses with high-resolution imaging, confocal microscopy, and advanced digital imaging modalities” states Martin Pietila, Associate Product Manager for high-content analysis at Carl Zeiss. “Bridging research microscopy and screening constitutes a continuum of technology in the biomedical imaging market. By leveraging our experience with the Thermo Scientific Cellomics product line we have matched the best in class imaging with the best in class high content analysis technology' states James Sharp, President and Chief Executive Officer of Carl Zeiss MicroImaging.
