Scientific Cores & Shared Resources High Throughput Biology Laboratory

NYU School of Medicine’s High Throughput Biology Laboratory is a shared resource dedicated to aiding researchers in the innovative development, optimization, screening, and imaging of mid- and high throughput assays.

We support researchers by providing high throughput and high content screening services and equipment. These include the latest in automated liquid handling, imaging technologies, and multimode plate readers. In addition, we deliver logistical, technical, and bioinformatics support in the performance and interpretation of your experiments. 

Our services include the following:

  • whole genome and custom small interfering RNA (siRNA) and microRNA (miRNA) human and mouse libraries 
  • automated liquid dispensing starting at 0.1 µl and microplate washing
  • robotic plate replication, reformatting, and media transfers
  • multimode plate readers (luminescence, fluorescence, absorbance, AlphaScreen®, infrared)
  • assay development, screening, data analysis, and visualization support
  • automated tissue and cellular imaging
  • digital image analysis (such as viability, colony count, colocalization, and neurite outgrowth)
  • plate preparation for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and screening of small molecules, biologics, and other assays
  • training for independent equipment usage or supported and full service assay development and screening

The High Throughput Biology Laboratory is committed to providing comprehensive and cost-effective services to the entire academic community and to facilitating collaboration among researchers at NYU School of Medicine and elsewhere.
