Welcome to Northwestern University's High Throughput Analysis Laboratory (HTA)

The HTA Laboratory is a shared, open-access resource established in 2004 on the Northwestern University campus. The HTA provides academic, industrial, and private researchers with equipment and expertise for the development and execution of high throughput biological analysis and screening. The facility is fully equipped with state-of-the-art liquid handling, plate detection and automated microbial culture handling capabilities.

The High Throughput Analysis Facility routinely performs:

  • Drug discovery screening
  • Whole genome screening
  • High content screening
  • Biochemical assays (enzymatic, binding)
  • Automated colony picking and arraying
  • Synthetic Genetic Array (SGA) analysis
  • Microbial library replication and rearraying
  • HTP molecular biology protocols
  • Large scale or complex liquid handling
  • Hit picking and library reformatting
  • Tube to plate reformatting
  • Micro qPCR reactions in 384 well format

The facility also assists researchers in developing novel automated methods to increase assay and sample preparation throughput. Please browse this site for a complete description of facility capabilities, and feel free to contact HTA to discuss your project. Facility hours by appointment only.

The HTA is supported by:

  • Rober H. Lurie Cancer Center
  • Northwestern University Office for Research

The HTA is also affiliated with:

  • Chemistry of Life Processes Institute
  • Center for Molecular Innovation and Drug Discovery
  • Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases
