Fluorescence imaging

EVOS cell imaging systems are designed to eliminate the complexities of capturing multicolor fluorescent images without compromising on performance. These units combine all features of a digital inverted microscope workstation into a single, compact device that can be mastered in minutes. Even the most novice users will be able to spend more time analyzing data rather than worrying about microscope operation. Whether you’re capturing exquisite images for publication or counting cells for viability determination, these systems are designed to be easier, smarter, and faster.
