ACCESS Geneva, High throughput Screening Facility
ACCESS Geneva is a facility specialized in image-based high-content screening (HCS) and high-throughput screening (HTS). We provide infrastructure and know-how to deliver projects from Swiss academia or industry and offer a fully automated station with state-of-the-art equipment, technology and methodology. Established in 2015, the facility is based at the Biochemistry department of the University of Geneva.
Image-based screening and automated microscopy allows the precise identification and quantification of very diverse phenotypes from most of current biological models. Screening projects involve several types of models perturbations such as RNA interference, small molecules or mutations to study very diverse biological processes. The technology allows then a very fast and robust identification and quantification of unpredicted phenotypes.
