Uncover biologically relevant information from cells and compounds in your drug discovery research with the sophisticated automated fluorescence microscopy, image acquisition, and analysis of high content screening (HCS).
A major challenge for cell-based imaging assays is selecting the ideal combination of plate type, magnification, and image quality that will yield reproducible and robust results. The Corning portfolio provides the highest quality microplates with the broadest range of options to meet this need.
Cell culture and plating techniques, the use of automation, and plate selection can all help reduce variability and improve results. The use of specialized microplates is especially critical for achieving optimal results. Key plate features include optimized flatness, thickness, film type, well bottom elevation, and surface type as they directly affect the optical quality, cell adherence, and well imaging access.
