New application for HCS

Non-invasive cancer- diagnosis: a new application for HCS HCS was first used in pharmaceutical industry to develop a new way to find new drugs. But this technology is extended since few years in other domains, as diagnosis! source:

Renaissance of Phenotypic Research

“While classical screens with a single readout only allow you to quantify the measured effect, high-content screens promise more: Additional phenotypic changes can be observed and also quantified, allowing in principle a distinction of the chemical responses into three classes: similar to untreated cells; similar to control-treated cells; or dissimilar Read more…

HCS to find new metastasis genes

Using automated high content screening and sophisticated computational modeling, the researchers’ screening and analysis of tens of millions of genetically manipulated cells helped them identify more than a dozen genes that influence cell shape.
