LS720 Inside Incubator

Live Cell Imaging In Your Incubator!
  • Quality comparable to traditional, high-cost microscopes
  • Compatible with microplates, dishes, chamber slides, flasks, microfluidic chips
  • 3-Color fluorescence, phase contrast, brightfield
  • Images, time-lapse & live video
  • 1.25-100x objectives
  • LS720 pictured above with phase contrast: Auto XY stage & autofocus

 

 LS720 Automated Fluorescence Microscope
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Features and Benefits
  • Automated XY stage with autofocus in Z (LS720) or manual stage (LS620) provide images (photos), time-lapse series, and videos recorded directly to your computer
  • Fully functioning microscope empowers users to visualize cells from microplates, flasks, slides or custom labware
  • Modern LED and advanced optical design provide near diffraction-limited (theoretical maximum) resolution
  • Robust software allows set-up and control across many locations, including microplates and custom arrays
  • Versatile and compact design enables use inside cell culture incubators and hoods
  • Detects blue, green and red fluorophores, including BFP, DAPI, FITC, Fluo-4, GFP & mCherry
  • Flip-up deck (LS720) or Accessible deck (LS620) allows easy objective access
  • Used manually, but also robot compatible (LS720; RS485, RS232, 5V digital interfaces)
  • Objective compatibility with standard lenses permits use of your own objectives

Both utilize a Semrock Brightline® Pinkel filter set optimized for 405 nm, 488 nm, and 594 nm LED light sources. The 5-filter set is comprised of 3 exciting filters, 1 triple-band emitting filter, and 1 beam-splitting filter. The 720 also contains the same CMOS sensor as the LS620 that is larger than the sensor used in LS500 and LS400.
