Explore automation-ready systems for cellular screening workflows
Our automated, high-content screening (HCS) workcell provides an end-to-end solution that helps standardize live 2D/3D cellular development process with cell culture, treatment, and incubation, through to imaging, analysis, and data processing, delivering consistent, unbiased, and biologically-relevant results at scale.
With intuitive scheduling software, researchers can control the 3D workflow remotely, tracking the cell journey from single cell to differentiated organoid along the way. Cell culture and incubation is streamlined with an automated incubator and collaborative robot that maintains culture consistency. Media exchange for culture maintenance is standardized and streamlined with automated liquid handling, minimizing manual intervention. 3D model development can be monitored over time with label-free imaging to assess assay readiness. Plus, with real-time feedback, scheduling of automated compound addition and treatment is standardized.
