Application Note: Automated Tissue Culture Cell Fixation and Staining in Microplates
17 April 2013

Fluorescence microscopy has traditionally been performed on microscope slides, but there is a growing trend towards the use of 96- and 384-well microplates as this allows greater number of samples to be easily processed and automated. This is certainly true in the field of High Content Screening. This application note describes the use of the EL406™ Combination Washer Dispenser to automate the fixation and staining processes typically used prior to fluorescence imaging.
