Thermo Scientific Cellomics ArrayScan XTI

High-content screening (HCS) platform for automated, multi-parametric fluorescence and brightfield imaging of fixed or live cells, with quantitative analysis at single cell resolution. Image analysis can be performed in real time using nineteen different analytical “Bioapplications” algorithms. Applications include programs to study the cell cycle, cell motility, marker localization, membrane dynamics, neuronal differentiation, and protein translocation.


  • 7-channel widefield fluorescence imaging or 6-channel confocal imaging, plus brighfield
  • 2.5X, 5X, 10X, 20X and 40X objectives
  • Environmental control: CO2 (5%), temperature, relative humidity
  • Sample capacity: one multiwell plate (6 well – 1536 well) at a time, or 4 slides
  • HCS Studio software for analysis
Manufacturer: ThermoFisher Scientific

These acknowledgements are very important because documenting our contributions helps to ensure that the resources of the Core Facilities are sustainable.

  • Equipment: If you used Core Facility equipment, please note this in the Materials and Methods. e.g., Thermogravimetric analysis was carried out using a TA Instruments TGA-Q50 (Rensselaer CBIS Analytical Biochemistry Core Facility).
  • Personnel: Please consider including CBIS personnel as co-authors on your publications when they have made a significant intellectual contribution to the research. Include CBIS Core Facility directors or staff as co-PI or co-investigators in grant applications when they provide a significant contribution to the grant proposal and scientific/intellectual leadership for the proposed work. Please follow these guidelines: ABRF Recommended Guidelines for Authorship on Manuscripts. Also, our Core Facility personnel always appreciate when they are mentioned in the Acknowledgements section of publications.
  • Required Funding Authorization Form: Rensselaer researchers must fill out the CBIS Cores Authorization Form (PDF) to use the CBIS Core Facilities.
