BioTek Instruments, Winooski, Vt, has launched the Lionheart FX automated live cell imager with augmented microscopy technology. The instrument is optimized for kinetic live cell imaging, with up to 100x air and oil immersion magnification in a variety of slides, dishes, microplates, and flasks. Imaging channels include brightfield, color brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescence, with both image-based and laser autofocus. A unique environmental control cover provides convenience beyond that of typical digital microscopes, allowing for incubation up to 40ºC and gas control, while the optional humidity chamber and dual reagent injectors enhance environmental support for live cell imaging workflows. Gen5 3.0 software provides automated image capture and analysis, plus annotation and movie maker functions, offering ease and simplicity across a broad range of live and fixed cell applications.
