ACQUIFER Imaging Machine

for Automated Microscopy and Screening

Workshop Content:

Automated microscopy and screening is increasingly employed in biomedical and pharmaceutical research for the large scale phenotypic analysis of biological specimens. This has led to many solutions for various assay needs and also often to complex setups, limiting use to expert staff. To address this issue, ACQUIFER has developed a novel and easy-to-use high content screening platform.

In this workshop, we will present the ACQUIFER Imaging Machine, an automated microscope following a unique opto-mechanical design rendering it ideal for imaging non-adherent, motion sensitive or large specimens.

The focus of this workshop will be: 

  • High Content Screening workflows and smart imaging from image acquisition to data
  • Advantages of the ACQUIFER Imaging Machine concept for reliable, reproducible and fast widefield screening in multi-well plates.
  • Tools and methods for reproducible mounting of e.g. zebrafish in multi-well plates
