High Content Screening Facility

The Facility has an In Cell Analyzer 2000 (INCA 2000, GE healthcare), the first in Israel, which is a high throughput high content image screening analyzer capable of automatically acquiring multiple fluorescence-labeled images from live or fixed cells cultured in multi titter-well plates. We offer the possibility to analyze a wide range of cellular types together with intracellular biological markers baring different fluorescent labels. The image data analysis is performed in batches, using specialized software that quantifies the multi-parametric information at the cellular and sub-cellular levels allowing graphical visualization, characterization and analysis.

Assays:
Cell count, cell cycle, cell migration, vesicular labeling, cytotoxicity, DNA repair, cell adhesion, cell proliferation, apoptosis, gene expression reporter systems, neurite outgrowth, etc.

Technichal features of INCA 2000 include:

  • Environmental control
  • Liquid handling
  • Transmitted and fluorescence light imaging
  • Temperature Control
  • Plates or slide imaging

In addition, the lab is equipped with:

  • Cell and tissue culturing facilities
       -Human primary cells, human embryonic and adult stem cell cultures and various differentiation protocols.
       -Custom assay preparation
  • Drug HT screening facility (not yet available)
       -Compound Libraries
       -Liquid handling robot integrated with INCA 2000
