Live Cell Imaging

 Live Cell Imaging and Time Lapse Microscopy

A fully automated, inverted microscope system with brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescence imaging capabilities and long working distance objectives, housed within an incubator chamber to allow long term observation and recording of cells in conventional microplates, flasks and petri dishes.

Note: both of our confocal systems are also equipped for live cell imaging and time lapse microscopy but sample preparation will require different considerations.
