High content screening

The Acquifer imaging machine  is a fully automated microscopy system for small model organisms and cell-based screening applications. It is an easy-to-use, high speed screening  platform especially  for  time-lapse recording and  is  focused  on  high  stability,  easy  maintenance, maximum experiment reproducibility and long-term data transparency.

Typical   applications include screening   of   zebrafish, drosophila, yeast, cells and 3D-cell cultures. The combination of a static microtiter plate and moving objectives, provides an optimised research platform for samples in agarose, gel and water.

With optimised  temperature and CO2 control,  pressure  free  incubation,  linear  motor and laser  auto-focus, optimised images can be acquired  throughout  the  image acquisition process.
