Brief summary of the workshop themes:

How to simply and quantitatively characterize your neuronal cultures?! - Automated High Content Screening microscopy

Automated High Content Screening (HCS) microscopy has been developed approximately 15 years ago to renew, develop, and speed up laborious and time-consuming label-free and fluorescence microscopy. Actually, HCS is the alter ego of flow cytometry developed for adherent cells, tissues and small living organisms (C. elegans, zebrahal). One of the main goals was to quickly aquire high-quality images on large or even a small number of samples under different treatment conditions. Accordingly, multi-well plates, confocal chambers or even multiple slides can be tested either in a cell-incubator environment. In addition, one of the main criterion was that simple, easy and quick image analysis should be integrated into the experimental process. Nowadays, there are plenty of applications ranging from the simplest (cell count, transfection efficiency, cytotoxicity) to extremely complex (neurite outgrowth, cell migration, angiogenesis, vesicle formation).

At the workshop, we will introduce our benchtop and modern ImageXpress Pico instrument of Molecular Devices. We are going to image and analyse fixed samples of neuronal cells and apoptotic HeLa cells.
