RTCA SP Station

 

The RTCA SP Station is located inside a tissue culture incubator and is capable of switching any one of the wells on the E-Plate 96 to the RTCA Analyzer for impedance measurement. Under the software of the RTCA Control Unit, the RTCA SP Analyzer can automatically select wells for measurement and continuously transfer measured impedance data to the computer. Cell Index values, derived from the measured impedances, are continuously displayed on the Software user interface.

 

The RTCA SP Instrument is composed of four main components:

• RTCA Analyzer
• RTCA SP Station
• RTCA Control Unit
• E-Plate 96

 

RTCA SP Instrument Highlights

• Rapid measurement time - less than 10 or 60 seconds for 96 wells
• Compact design of the RTCA SP Station that fits conveniently in tissue culture incubators
• High-performance electronic components and enhanced instrument reliability
• Easy setup and customization of assay protocols
• Integrated, on-line data analysis capability

Microscope: EVOS® XL Cell Imaging System

IncyCyte ZOOM® Live Cell Imaging

IncuCyte ZOOM® enables observation and quantification of cell behavior over time by automatically gathering and analyzing images around the clock. All within the controlled environment of a standard cell incubator.

IncuCyte ZOOM® consists of a microscope gantry that resides in the cell incubator and a networked external controller hard drive that gathers and processes image data. Different microscope objectives (4x, 10x, 20x) can be housed within each system and readily interchanged by the user. Each IncuCyte ZOOM® houses multiple T-flasks or microtiter plates (up to 6) and can acquire >2000 images per hour.

IncuCyte ZOOM® supports HD phase-contrast, green fluorescence and red fluorescence automated imaging modes. In Whole Well Imaging mode, entire wells all the way to the edge can be imaged even in large area formats such as 35 mm dishes.

IncuCyte ZOOM® is controlled from the office or home by intuitive, simple to use desktop software. Customizable and trained phase-contrast and multi-color image processing metrics are available allowing for real time analysis and data visualization on the fly. Creating image and movie files for export is a cinche. The IncuCyte ZOOM® also has a powerful embedded database architecture making it simple for users to search and retrieve experimental data.

Variable Oxygen Control Incubators

Inside the body, oxygen concentrations range from 1-14%, rather than the 20-21% found in the atmosphere. Cells cultured in low oxygen (hypoxia) grow faster, live longer, and show lower stress. Our variable oxygen control incubator will generate hypoxic conditions (around 2% oxygen, with no changes in humidity and CO2 level) to help your cells grow faster and healthier.
