Cellomics ArrayScan VTI

Schedule time to use the Cellomics ArrayScan VTI

ArrayScan VTI HCS Reader is an automated fluorescent microscopic imaging system designed for high content screening and phenotyping in fixed or live cells. High Content imaging allows the measurement of events in, on and around cells. Imaging can be performed as and endpoint assay or over time on live cells. The system is equipped with a live cell chamber for a complete temperature, humidity, and CO2 controlled environment.

Key Features:

  • Fully automated microscope optics by Carl Zeiss
  • Automated Stage can accommodate 96 or 384 well micro-plate or slides
  • High-resolution, shutterless cooled CCD camera
  • Automated objective changer
