High Content Analysis in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta
The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (FoMD) High Content Analysis (HCA) Core is a multi-user facility at the University of Alberta. Originally established in 2010 as the RNAi Core, it was rebranded in 2019. The HCA Core operates under the umbrella of the FoMD Flow Cytometry Facility.
The facility operates on a fee-for-use basis, which allows partial cost recovery for operating expenses. The major portion of the facility operating costs is supported through Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) awards to contributing investigators. User fees are used to cover the cost of consumables and partially cover service contracts and maintenance.
The HCA Core houses leading edge equipment to manage and automate large-scale experiments in areas such as drug discovery and single cell analysis. From sample processing and liquid handling to quantitative analysis of sequencing, imaging, and fluorescent data, the core offers high-throughput methods for researchers’ screening needs.
