Funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research and the UK cancer charity, the Sheffield RNAi Screening Facility was established as the first Drosophila RNAi screening center in the UK. The facility provides a high-throughput RNAi screening service to researchers studying genes involved in many diseases and pathways. The group recently published results of a whole-genome RNAi screen, where high-content microscopy was used to characterize genes regulating the mitophagy pathway that is linked to Parkinson’s disease.
This screening workflow using the ImageXpress® Micro System shortens time to result significantly from 6-12 weeks down to 10-14 days. Furthermore, reliability and robustness of the system ensure consistent uptime and quality data from a walk-away operation.
The ImageXpress Micro XLS High-Content Analysis System has been replaced by the ImageXpress Micro 4 High-Content Analysis System, which represents the culmination of four generations of imaging expertise. The latest agile design allows you to boost your research with this faster-than-ever system, while providing the option to upgrade to confocal in the future to align with your research needs.
