Developed for compound screening and assay development applications in the Pharmaceutical, CRO and Biotech Industries.

Hamamatsu has introduced a new imaging based plate reader, the FDSSµCELL, specifically developed for compound screening and assay development applications in the Pharmaceutical, CRO and Biotech Industries.

The FDSSµCELL is optimized for fluorescent kinetic assays using calcium and membrane potential dyes such as FLUO4 and FMP.

Dispensing is available in either 96 or 384 well format with easily exchangeable heads.

Agonist / antagonist assays to be performed in the same run, as two additions are possible. The optional washing system reduces carry over and allows tips to be reused several times.

Based on the renowned FDSS series, the µCELL uses proven and reliable technology, including our famous Hamamatsu camera range, to provide high sensitivity and fast readout times of a few minutes, compared to the longer readout times offered by other readers currently in the market.

Designed for fast and simple operation, assay and compounds plates can be easily loaded and the assay is ready to start.

The software helps users to quickly set assay parameters in a single protocol which can then be easily transferred to the FDSS7000 for further screening.

The new FDSSµCELL is very cost effective and is the reader of choice offering easy set-up and high speed readout for users kinetic assays in fluorescence.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.

Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
