What our customers are saying
Dept. Molecular & Cell Biology
“We have been using the Lumascope 600 fluorescent microscopes for about 5 years for teaching neurobiology and cell biology undergraduate lab courses and are very happy with them. They are compact and portable, so we can move 8-10 scopes from lab to lab very easily, and they have been reliable and simple to use. We can get great image results for most of our experiments using a gain between 30-50% and a light intensity of 10-15%, thus maximizing image quality and minimizing potential problems from bleaching. The scopes are easy to use and stand up to the abuse that students can sometimes inflict and the scopes have held over the years with no technical malfunction issues or any wear being evident. The Lumaview software is both comprehensive and easy to use in terms of image acquisition and file storage and access.
At half the price of conventional upright fluorescent microscopes, and less than half the space taken up, the choice for us was clear and we have been more than satisfied. “
“Extraction of quantitative data from time-lapse imaging can provide unprecedented insights into cell signaling in single cells. A limiting factor in moving this field forward is the cost of existing live imaging systems, until now. The Lumascope 720 has enabled our small budget laboratory to extract real-time data from our multi-color live cell reporters. Thanks to the 720, we have been able to switch over from expensive ELISA based broken cell assays that measure the average signal across heterogeneous populations of cells at a single time point to now acquiring essentially free data points at single cell resolution over time. Also, thanks to the motorized stage and multiwell format we don’t need to use our plate reader anymore.”

“The Lumascope allowed us to resolve low intensity fluorescent labeling that our much higher priced microscope (from a well known company) could not!”
