AUTOMATED PLATFORM

We use an integrated, automated platform for running high-throughput genomic and chemical screens. 

Our platform includes:

  • 2 Incubators

  • Ambient storage racks

  • Echo 650 acoustic liquid handling system

  • MultiFlo MFX Liquid Dispenser

  • Biotek Plate washer

  • Robot arm

  • Calendar based scheduling

  • Operetta CLS (see below)

QUANTITATIVE MICROSCOPY

We develop in-house computer vision pipelines for analysis of live, and fixed cell, tissue and whole-organ imaging data. 

Our microscopy facility houses:

  • 2 Nikon Ti Eclipse inverted microscopes, equipped with LED light sources, and environment chamber for live cell imaging. 

  • Nikon A1 Confocal microscope (laser scanning), equipped with 5 lasers, and chamber for live cell imaging.

  • Incucyte S3 In-incubator live cell analysis system, equipped with 4X-20X objectives, red/green fluorescence imaging, and 6-vessel capacity.

  • Operetta CLS equipped with 8LEDs, capable of spinning disk confocal imaging at 5X-40X, live cell imaging, and on-board image analysis software.
