Choose from over 20 interchangeable light cubes
Our systems are uniquely suited to match the dynamic needs of your cell imaging workflow, with instruments
- Modular—quickly customize the fluorescent colors with interchangeable light cubes
- Compact—conserve valuable lab space with a small footprint and sleek design
- Affordable—low cost of ownership and operation
All three platforms use revolutionary Invitrogen™ EVOS™ LED light cubes that are interchangeable, have plug-and-play capability, and can be easily transferred between instruments
Fast and accurate cell counting with fluorescence
Count cells, monitor fluorescent protein expression, and measure cell viability in 10 seconds. A reusable glass slide is available to reduce the long-term consumable costs.
Fluorescence channels: Up to two fluorescent channels in addition to brightfield.
Simple fluorescence imaging with increased flexibility
Designed for a broad range of applications including, but not limited to, multiple-channel fluorescence imaging, protein analysis, pathology, cell culture, and in situ imaging.
Time-lapse imaging at high resolution
This fully automated, digital inverted multichannel fluorescence and transmitted-light imaging system is designed for a broad range of applications. The Invitrogen™ EVOS™ FL Auto Imaging System with EVOS™ Onstage Incubator enables time-lapse imaging of live cells.
EVOS light cubes integrate LEDs and high-performance filters in a novel illumination system that is designed to deliver precise control and exceptional reliability with minimal maintenance.
These interchangeable LED cubes provide:
- Shorter light paths for more efficient fluorescent detection
- Longer bulb lifetime (>50,000 hours) for lower maintenance costs
- Adjustable light intensity to minimize photobleaching
- Continuous light intensity for more consistent results
