The Hudson VaryScreen I is an automated assay system which can be used to run a wide variety of pre-defined biological assays. It includes pre-written protocols for six commonly-used, general categories of assay: fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization (e.g., HitHunter IP3), FRET (including variations such as LANCE and VIPER), luminescence (e.g., Luciferase Reporter), ELISA, and Alpha Screen. In addition, it can be used to develop new assays, model protocols, optimize conditions, and validate results.
The system consists of a set of instruments that automate various aspects of a high throughput screen, and software designed to control each instrument’s action and ensure they operate in an efficient, coordinated environment.
The VaryScreen I contains robotic components to carry out many screening tasks: liquid handling, plate handling, reading, and other assorted functions.
