Center for Large-scale cell-based screening

An overview of the screening facility

The Center for Large-scale cell-based screening provides access to various high throughput methodologies for genome-wide screens. This unit is of importance for a wide array of applications in cell and molecular biology, microbial evolution, drug/antibiotics screening and biotechnology.
The infrastructure consists of robots and automated phenotyping devices that are used in genome-wide approaches in many fields of bioscience. Software and databases have been developed for data generation, analysis, storage and presentation. Moreover, existing massive microbial strain collections are a fundament of the screening services that the infrastructure delivers.

Services and prices

The facility consists of expert scientists, researchers, and technicians that have extensive experience in different high-content screening fields (e.g. agar-based screening, liquid-based profiling, imaging-based screening, etc.). In general, the costs for our services will be calculated based on the instrument maintenance and depreciation, material and consumable and personal costs. A collaboration model can be applied, and depends on the agreement between the user and the specific researcher at the facility.

Services provided:

  1. High-content, high throughput, imaging based screening (HCS)
  2. High resolution, high-throughput quantitative growth phenotyping (liquid and solid medium growth phenotyping)
  3. Synthetic gene arrays: genome-wide genetic interaction screens
  4. Chemical genetics: bioactive molecules
  5. Experimental evolution
