Microscopy Core Facility


The Multi Camera Array Microscope (MCAM) Kestrel can provide image capture and analysis of high throughput chemical and genetic screens. The MCAM Kestrel can acquire synchronous high-speed video (>160 frames-per-second) over an entire multi-well plate, and also screen an entire multi-well plate within seconds in fluorescence or brightfield – a 5X increase in temporal resolution and 24X increase in throughput compared with competing systems.

Pricing & Scheduling

To encourage development of a stable user-base and to introduce users to the exciting capabilities of the MCAM, consultations, training, and machine usage are currently free of charge.
