HCSF - High Content Screening Facility

  Copyright: © HCSF

The HCSF offers researchers of the Faculty of Medicine, of the RWTH Aachen University and external users the opportunity to use a confocal-based Hight Content Screening (HCS) System for their research.


We give researchers easy access to the Opera Phenix Plus HCS System for streamlined data acquisition and analysis of fluorescent labeled samples.

After data acquisition the facility aides the user in detailed and complex analysis of fluorescence data encompassing but not limited to:

  • Composition of tissues
  • Cell Colony distribution and composition
  • Cell count, differentiation morphology, textures
  • FRET Analysis
  • Digital Phase Imaging

The facility specializes in High-throughput screening and standardized analysis of low volume samples in 96, 384 and 1536 well microtiter plates as well as larger volume plates, 6 – 48 well plates, microscopy chamber slides and microscopy slides.
