The MuviCyte live-cell imaging system is designed to operate inside your cell-culture incubator, enabling you to maintain your cells under optimal conditions and perform a wide range of assays in a variety of culture vessels.
Life science research labs study cellular behaviors and pathways to gain a deeper understanding of functions, disease mechanisms and responses to treatments. Live-cell imaging is a vital tool for getting maximum information from precious cell samples.
The MuviCyte live-cell imaging kit consists of a MuviCyte live-cell imaging instrument plus 4x, 10x and 20x objective lenses, PC and monitor.
The MuviCyte system is designed to operate inside your incubator, so you can maintain your cells under optimal conditions, keeping them healthy for weeks at a time. Controlled by an external PC, you can observe your cells remotely, which helps to keep the culture chamber at optimum levels of temperature, CO2, and humidity. The automated operation allows you to focus on your science while the instrument runs unattended.
With three-color fluorescence imaging, z-stacking, and stitching capabilities, you can perform a wide range of assays in a variety of culture vessels, e.g. chamber slides, petri dishes, flasks, microplates. Automated imaging, over hours to days, means your assays can be run at much higher throughput than with a traditional microscope.
The system has built-in image analysis software for assays such as cell health and viability, transfection efficiency, reporter gene, apoptosis and proliferation, and optional software available for scratch wound and spheroid assays.
