The Opera Phenix® Plus High Content Screening System is the premier confocal solution for today's most demanding high content applications. Drawing on over a decade of experience with the industry-leading Opera® and Opera® Phenix system, the Opera Phenix Plus is designed for high-throughput high-content assays, phenotypic screening, assays using complex disease models, such as live cells, primary cells and microtissues, and fast-response assays, such as Ca2+ flux.  

Objectives include a 10X air objective, a 20X water objective, and a 63X water immersion objective. The instrument has four large format (4.7 mega pixel) CMOS cameras allowing for simultaneous image acquisition of four channels. The unit is also fitted with the four solid state excitation Lasers: 405 nm 50mW, 488 nm 60mW, 561 nm 50mW, and 640 nm 40mW. Emission filters include: 435-550 nm, 435-480 nm, 500-550 nm , 570-630 nm, and 650-760 nm.
