Equipment description
Perkin Elmer Operetta HCS confocal

Designed to allow rapid acquisition of image data from standard 96- and 384-well plate formats combined with integrated analysis tools.  HCS can obtain cytometer-like datasets from adherent cell models from subcellular localisation of fluorescent markers or cell morphology.

Spinning disc confocal technology 
10x, 20x and 40x long working distance objectives
20x high NA objectives
Temperature control and CO2 for cultured cells
400W Xenon based illumination 
Fully automated image acquisition from 24,96 and 384 well plates.
Harmony: integrated acquisition and analysis software.
Phenologic- machine learning-based phenotype recognition software
OMERO-based Columbus Image Data Storage and Analysis System

Example Applications
- Drug dose response curve calculation
- Small molecule screens based on changes in cell phenotype
- Large scale siRNA screens
- Live cell culture studies
