The High Throughput Analysis Laboratory (HTA) provides researchers with equipment and expertise for the development and execution of high throughput biological analysis and screening. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art liquid handling, plate detection and automated microbial culture handling capabilities. In addition, the HTA also is a resource for biological and chemical libraries for RNAi and other screening projects, housing two advanced whole-genome shRNAmir libraries (mouse and human) from Open Biosystems, seven yeast libraries for various knock-out or over-expression experiments and 60,000 chemical compounds from ChemDiv, ChemBridge, ASDI and NCI. The facility also develops novel automated methods to increase assay and sample preparation throughput.
NU-HTA provides researchers access to cutting edge technology for large scale screening and drug discovery. Levels of service include the full range from walk-up instrument use to fully supported projects.
