Imaging Platform & Plate Reader Combination
Why compromise on performance, ease of use, or flexibility?
For plate reading and imaging applications, Invitrogen EVOS Cell Imaging Systems, Thermo Scientific High-Content Platforms, and Thermo Scientific Varioskan LUX Multimode Microplate Readers work together to bring you results—quickly and easily. Using the right combination of analysis platforms helps enable experiments that would otherwise be limited by a competing need for instrumentation in your lab. Follow time-lapse imaging of your biofilm development using the EVOS FL Auto 2 Imaging System with the EVOS Onstage Incubator. Even a multiday imaging experiment will not interfere with your ability to measure calcium flux or gene expression using luminescence on the Varioskan LUX multimode reader.
Analysis of biofilm matrix
Fluorescence-based imaging and quantitation of biofilm matrix using wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). (A) Invitrogen WGA Alexa Fluor 488 fluorescent conjugate–based imaging and (B) quantification of poly-N-acetylglucosamine (PNAG) is shown in the biofilm matrix of S. aureus using an EVOS FL Cell Imaging System and Varioskan LUX Multimode Microplate Reader, respectively. See the complete microbial biofilms application note.
Cell imaging systems
Cellular imaging with Thermo Fisher Scientific draws on the combined strengths of Invitrogen EVOS cell imaging systems and Thermo Scientific high-content platforms and analysis tools. Select an all-in-one transmitted light system to fit in your cell culture hood, or an automated fluorescence system with an onstage incubator, plate scanning, image stitching, and integrated analysis.
