High Throughput Microscopy

The platform is equipped with a PerkinElmer® Operetta CLS, which allows for microscopy screening experiments as well as automated acquisition and analysis.
The microscope has an epifluorescence or confocal mode and can be used with live cells as it is equipped with a CO2-37°C incubation chamber.
It is open to external users.
