- I need a new microscope system. I see that you offer a number of EVOS systems. How do I choose?
- What is the difference between “long working distance” (LWD) objectives and “coverslip corrected” (CC) objectives in the EVOS imaging systems?
- Can the light cubes used in the EVOS FL imaging systems also be used in the Countess II FL Automated Cell Counter?
- The objectives available for the EVOS cell imaging systems come in different formats: Plan Achromat, Plan Fluorite, and Plan Apochromat. What factors should I consider when selecting an objective?
- For high-content analysis (HCA)/high-content screening (HCS), what are the main differences between the CellInsight CX5, CX7, and ArrayScan systems?
- I want to check to make sure I have the most up-to-date software for my EVOS imaging system. Where do I go for this?
- My objective keeps running into my sample when I’m trying to focus with my EVOS FL Auto Imaging System. What can I do about this?
- I’m using an EVOS imaging system and my objective is rubbing up against the edge of the vessel holder of my stage. How can I correct this?
- I’m trying to acquire an image on the EVOS imaging system, but nothing shows up on the monitor. What can be causing this?
