HCS Assays

PerkinElmer offers a range of solutions to enable you to develop your assays with ease. Find out more about the assays you are interested in and how our products can help.

Apoptosis assay


Apoptosis assays are a widely used application in High Content Analysis because of their central role in cancer research and immunology.


Cell cycle assay

Cell Cycle

Cell cycle assays are applied in early toxicity testing and in screening for anti-cancer agents.


Cell differentiation assay

Cell Differentiation

Cell differentiation is a multi-step procedure associated with the expression of a specific set of cellular markers in each step.


Cell migration assay

Cell Migration

Analysis of cell migration is an important phenotypical assay of processes such as tumor metastasis, immune response and wound healing.


Cell proliferation assay

Cell Proliferation

The accurate assessment of cell number and cell proliferation is useful in many high content assays.


Cell shape changes assay

Cell Shape Changes

Analysis of cell spreading is relevant to screening for inhibitors of cell adherence to a substrate.


Cytoskeletal rearrangement assay

Cytoskeletal Rearrangement

Cytoskeletal rerarrangements occur in physiological events such as cell movement. Cytoskeletal defects are frequently associated with diseases such as cancer / metastasis and also cytotoxicity.


Cytotoxicity assay


The ability to measure early indicators of toxicity is an essential part of drug discovery.


Infection assay


Traditionally an area for flow cytometry, many infection assays have been transferred from flow cytometry to imaging.


Lipid droplet analysis assay

Lipid Droplet Analysis

Image based analysis of lipid droplet formation is used in two application areas: predicting drug toxicity and metabolic diseases.


Neurite outgrowth assay

Neurite Outgrowth

Regeneration of neurons represents a promising strategy for drugs targeted against neurodegenerative injuries and disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.


Protein expression assay

Protein Expression

Protein expression can be very easily quantified in High Content Analysis using either fluorescent protein tags or fluorescently labeled antibodies.


Receptor activation assay

Receptor Activation

There are many image based approaches for studying receptor activation.


reporter gene assays

Reporter Gene

Reporter gene assays have easily measurable phenotypes that form the basis of sensitive, quantitative and reproducible assays of eukaryotic gene expression and regulation.


Signaling pathway assay

Signaling Pathway Analysis

Image based High Content Analysis can support all signaling pathway assays which rely on the translocation of a fluorescently labeled signaling molecule.


Transcription factors assay

Transcription Factors

Activation of transcription factors can be monitored by imaging as a translocation from the cytoplasm to the nucleus using antibodies for the transcription factors or fluorescent protein tags.
