Our automation platform in Lille has now a name ! We call it HAPIx for “HCS Automation Platform for Imaging”. And what is this little “x” besides ? It means that we can take 3D pictures of many things like cells, spheroids, skin, histology slides, etc.

To achieve this, we use two very powerful confocal acquisition tools from Molecular Devices (ImageXpress Micro Confocal) and a robust software layer to work in a high throughput manner. Thanks to a strong partnership with Molecular Devices, we are able to use the latest software developments and profit from their best skills ! It is a good way to imagine how to be better and simpler for our customers !

As it could be complicated to imagine what an automation platform is, we are happy to share with you a short immersive video “inside” HAPIx ! If you want to experiment it, please use a Google cardboard or something similar.
