Cell Screen SA
The Cell Screen SA (CeSSA) laboratory has all the robotics you need to run your high-throughput experiments. We also have ample bench space, two CO2 and temperature controlled incubators, a biohazard hood and laminar flow cabinet.
As at June 2016 we are PC1 certified only but we anticipate PC2 certification later in 2016.
CeSSA provides automated liquid handling, high-content imaging, measurement of fluorescence-based assays and measurement of luminescence-based assays.
The instrumentation in the Flinders laboratory can be used for single plate/sample assays through to high-throughput screening (up to 110 x 384 well plates, without manual handling, depending on assay) and is focused around several Perkin Elmer instruments.
Integration of all instruments with the plate::handler allows for complete automation of plate movement between instruments. Instruments can also be used separately.
Our instrumentation can be used for:
- Janus: Automated pipetting procedures, including: labware (tube etc.) to plate, sample dilutions, plate treatments, cell seeding.
- Operetta: High-content imaging using brightfield, confocal or non-confocal fluorescence, as well as image analysis.
- Ensight: Absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, time-resolved fluorescence and Alpha-assay plate reading.
- Automated workflows combining all or some instruments, for example for high-throughput screening applications or time-course imaging.
