IncuCyte Live Cell Analysis System

Description and Applications

The IncuCyte S3 from Essen Bioscience automatically acquires and analyzes images of cell cultures inside an incubator. The stage accommodates up to six multi-well plates, which are scanned automatically according to the investigator-defined schedule. The IncuCyte enables real-time monitoring of a variety of live cell assays including viability, differentiation, proliferation, migration, invasion, neurite outgrowth and a wide range of phenotypic cell-based assays. The IncuCyte is installed in a standard 3110 Thermo cell culture incubator and is equipped with 4x/10x/20x objectives and green and red fluorescent filters.

At ANTEC, IncuCyte users have access to a fully equipped cell culture facility and refrigerator/freezer storage space. Users are required to bring their own supplies and small equipment (pipettes).
