Additional Information
The EVOS XL Core Imaging System is a digital transmitted-light inverted imaging system for cell and tissue culture applications and routine cell maintenance. Its simple user interface drives a color camera and high-quality optical system that delivers high-definition images with exceptional ease. Equipped with 4X, 10X, 20X, and 40X long-working–distance (LWD) phase contrast (PH) objectives and a mechanical stage, the all-in-one EVOS XL Core system is an ideal microscope for basic imaging needs. With a small footprint, an articulated LCD monitor, and ergonomic design, it is a perfect addition to any cell culture room or facility.

The EVOS XL Core Imaging System offers these important advantages:
• Easy installation; no maintenance, assembly, alignment, or calibration
• 4X, 10X, 20X, and 40X LWD PH objectives that are ideal for tissue culture microscopy
• A mechanical stage for precise vessel positioning, including of multi-well plates
• Fits and operates inside cell culture hoods
• All-in-one design: digital camera, precision optics, LCD display, and USB storage

Imaging anywhere
The EVOS XL Core system is an integrated transmitted-light inverted imaging system that combines high-quality optics, a 12.1-inch high-resolution LCD display, and a digital color camera. Images are seamlessly acquired through the user interface using a mouse and the integrated software that includes a variety of features, such as color temperature control. All images can be saved onto the USB device in JPEG, BMP, or TIFF formats. Applications suited for the EVOS XL Core system include basic imaging of live and fixed cells, tissue culture needs (confluence, density, and growth), stem cell isolation, and analysis of stained tissue slices.

EVOS imaging systems are built from the ground up to maximize performance and optimize workflow. You will be astonished at how easy this system is to operate and amazed how good your images look.

While the microscope comes equipped with three objectives (4X, 10X, 20X, and 40X LWD PH), the four-position objective turret can be configured to meet additional needs using our full range of LWD phase contrast and coverslip-corrected objectives. LWD PH objectives are available from 1.25X to 40X. The compact footprint makes it easy to use the EVOS XL Core system wherever needed; the entire system can be easily moved into a cell culture hood or glove box. The mechanical stage affords precise handling and positioning and is particularly suitable for multi-well plate vessels.

Easy to use and reliable
The EVOS XL Core Imaging System is plug-and-play. In addition to an exceptionally easy set-up and installation, it requires no warm-up or cool-down periods. The LED light source offers exceptional stability and durability--so you can turn the unit on and off whenever you need to image a sample. The LED bulbs are rated for >50,000 hours (∼17 years), compared to 300 hours for a typical mercury bulb and 1,500 hours for a metal halide bulb. The long lifetime and low energy consumption translate into lower operating costs compared to instruments with conventional light sources. Finally, the advanced ergonomic design of the EVOS systems removes the strain of conventional microscopes in imaging, enables shared viewing, and makes moving the units easy.
