EVOS™ Onstage Two-port Perfusion Accessory (Invitrogen™)

The EVOS perfusion accessory enables perfusion of a sample in the EVOS Onstage Incubator through two tube ports. The EVOS Onstage Incubator is an environmental chamber designed specifically for the EVOS FL Auto Imaging System. When in use the perfusion accessory replaces the EVOS Onstage Incubator hose.

The EVOS Onstage Two-port Perfusion Accessory offers you these advantages:
• Ability to connect perfusion lines to the EVOS Onstage Incubator
• Facilitation of media exchanges
• Enhanced viability of sensitive cell types
• Extended live cell imaging duration

Designed for live cell imaging
The two ports on the perfusion accessory accommodate standard 1/8-in tubing, which is directed into the vessel on the stage. Perfusion of the sample with fresh medium or other liquids is generally done using a syringe or peristaltic pump (not included).

The EVOS Onstage Incubator is operated through the interface of the EVOS FL Auto Imaging system, and all environmental and acquisition parameters are controlled through this interface. So the incubator and imaging system operate as one fully integrated unit, making imaging live cells over time more convenient. Further, the heated lid of the EVOS Onstage Incubator helps prevent condensation and a glass coating of indium tin oxide maximizes light transmission.

EVOS™ Light Cube, Qdot™ 705

All EVOS fluorescence imaging systems contain our unique, proprietary LED light cubes. This world-leading light engine outputs remarkable intensity over a short light path that delivers superior fluorophore excitation. Each cube contains an LED, condensing optics, and hard-coated filters. EVOS light cubes are user-changeable and automatically recognized by the system. The Qdot 705 light cube is ideal for use with Qdot 705 and other fluorophores with excitation and emission maxima near 445 and 705 nm.

EVOS light cubes offers you these important advantages:

• A shorter light path that affords superior detection of fluorescent signals
• Continuous illumination that enables consistent results
• A 50,000+ hour bulb lifetime that affords lower operating costs
• Adjustable light intensity that helps reduce photobleaching

Revolutionary Light Path
By placing the LED light cube as close as possible to the objective turret, the number of optical elements in the light path is minimized. High-intensity illumination over a short light path increases the efficiency of fluorophore excitation, providing better detection of weak fluorescent signals.

Continuous Light Intensity
Mercury arc lamps can decrease in intensity by 50% in the first 100 hours of operation—plus, images acquired in different sessions cannot be quantitatively compared using mercury illumination without complicated calibrations. Because EVOS systems have continuous light cube intensity, users can rely on consistent illumination and can compare quantitative results from images acquired on different days. Each light cube contains a precisely matched set of optical components to optimize the position, evenness, and intensity of the light beam. Digitally controlled LED light sources allow adjustment of illumination levels, dramatically improving control over photobleaching.

Less Expensive to Own and Maintain
The LED bulbs on the EVOS systems 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. This translates to savings in the overall upkeep of your instrument.

EVOS Hard-coated Filter Sets for Higher Transmission Efficiencies
Hard-coated filter sets are more expensive that soft-coated filters, but they have sharper edges and significantly higher transmission efficiencies that typically result in >25% more light transmission than traditional soft-coated filters. With the EVOS systems' hard-coated filter sets, your light cubes cost less over time. Plus, you will have brighter fluorescence, higher transmission efficiencies, the ability to detect faint fluorescence signals, and better signal-to-noise ratios.

Olympus 2X Objective, apochromat, LWD

This apochromat objective is ideal for the most demanding applications, especially capturing color images in white light. This is a long working distance (LWD) objective that is optimized for the imaging of slides, cell culture dishes and flasks, and microtiter plates. All Olympus objectives are compatible with EVOS Cell Imaging systems and offer outstanding optical performance from visible light to near infrared light. The extensive choice of EVOS and Olympus objectives satisfies needs across the spectrum of magnifications and optical specifications.

Additional characteristics of this Olympus objective:

• Magnification: 2X
• Numerical Aperture: 0.08
• Working Distance: 6.22 mm

Image Quality
Microscope objectives may be the most important components of an optical microscope because they are responsible for primary image formation. Image quality is crucial to experimental success and a requirement for publication. Olympus objectives are widely recognized for their quality and performance across the visible spectrum to near infrared light. The broad selection of EVOS and Olympus objectives means you have a range of options for your imaging requirements.

Objective Classes

Achromat objectives are perfect for general applications, with standard correction of color and focus.

Fluorite objectives deliver excellent resolution and are made with higher numerical apertures than achromat objectives, resulting in brighter fluorescence signal and higher contrast imaging. The higher optical quality greatly reduces optical aberrations, and corrections for color and focus are at higher levels than achromat objectives. Fluorite objectives are ideally suited for fluorescence and demanding transmitted light applications, where the higher contrast make them ideally suited for color imaging.

Apochromat objectives are manufactured to the highest levels of resolution, fluorescence brightness, and contrast; chromatic aberrations are almost eliminated. They are recommended for the most demanding applications, particularly at magnifications of 60x and above. Apochromatic objectives are the best choice for the capture of color images in white light.

Brightfield Contrast versus Phase Contrast Objectives
Brightfield is the most basic form of light microscopy and is accomplished by sample absorption of light. A higher density area in a sample will absorb more light, thus increasing contrast in those areas. Phase contrast objectives are most useful for hard to see, translucent specimens. This method of contrast is accomplished by converting phase shifts, caused by light passing through a translucent specimen, into brightness changes (i.e., contrast).

Long Working Distance versus Coverslip-Corrected Objectives
Long working distance (LWD) objectives are optimized for use through vessels with a nominal wall thickness of 0.9-1.5 mm. This includes vessels commonly used in cell culture and cell-based assays, such as slides, cell culture dishes and flasks, microtiter well plates, etc. Coverslip-corrected objectives are optimized for use through #1.5 coverslips (thickness approximately 0.17 mm). These objectives have a higher magnification/NA ratio and provide higher resolution compared to LWD objectives.
