Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0070342A2] The present invention provides systems, methods, screens, and kits for optical system analysis of cells to rapidly determine the distribution, environment, or activity of luminescently labeled reporter molecules in cells for the purpose of screening large numbers of compounds for those that specifically affect particular biological functions. The invention involves providing cells containing luminescent reporter molecules in an array of locations and scanning numerous cells in each location with a luminescence optical system, converting the optical information into digital data, and utilizing the digital data to determine the distribution, environment or activity of the luminescently labeled reporter molecules in the cells.
