Additional Information
The Thermo Scientific™ CellInsight™ CX5 High Content Screening (HCS) Platform is a fast, simple-to operate, automated cellular imaging and analysis benchtop platform designed for quantitative microscopy. The CellInsight CX5 HCS Platform offers a cost effective, but powerful way to quickly automate quantitative cellular and subcellular imaging.

Features of the CellInsight CX5 HCS Platform

• Easy to Use—quickly build and optimize image-based assays with included Thermo Scientific™ HCS Studio™ Cell Analysis Software
• Flexible—designed to work with or without fluorescent labeling: The CellInsight CX5 HCS Platform can use transmitted light, as well as fluorescence, to allow users to focus on visible and/or fluorescent targets
• Affordable—automated high content imaging for all budgets
• High quality optics—Light sources, lenses, filters, and CCD detector from the top names in imaging. The five color light engine insures accuracy and stability of source lighting.
• Virtually maintenance–free operation due to state-of-the-art design and construction.
• Performance—scan and analyze a 96-well plate in under four minutes
• Compact—fits on a bench and is less than 2 ft. on all sides


• Make intracellular to multicellular morphology measurements while measuring intensity of specific reporter molecules.
• Collect only the images and data you select and make multiple measurements per object, over time, if desired
• Measure subpopulations and reject undesired objects automatically
• Comprehensive pre-validated and user configurable image analysis without user scripting or programming
• Exploratory assay development tools and specific biology optimized tools built into the HCS Studio™ Cell Analysis Software
• Define biological thresholds for outputs based on control populations
• Ability to create multi-parameter gates from individual output measurements

Hardware and Software:

• Stable, reliable light source reduces variability, increases data quality, and decreases operating costs
• Fluorescence options which include near-IR wavelength and compatibility with many common fluorochromes and fluorescent proteins
• • Proprietary Thermo Scientific™ AccuFocus™ System is fast, yet flexible, for imaging cells, organelles, and low contrast targets
• Unique intelligent acQuisition (iQ) real time analysis feedback to optimize image collection and data quality
• HCS Studio Cell Analysis Software is an integrated instrument control, visualization and analysis software package for novice to advanced users
• Features Thermo Scientific™ Store Express Image and Database Software using a 10GB SQL™ database
• Software output features image/data portability so results can be imported into third-party software for documentation
• Compatible with SBS standard microplates (6-1536 well) and slides

Compatible with Thermo Scientific™ Orbitor RS Plate Mover and other Thermo Scientific™ Laboratory Automation Solutions
