EVOS M5000 Imaging System

The EVOS M5000 microscope is a workhorse for cell imaging labs across a broad range of applications and imaging requirements with minimal requirement for personal contact with the instrument.

The EVOS M5000 Imaging System offers you these important advantages:

  • No ocular, on-screen display, minimal handling and many more safety features
  • Easy installation; no maintenance, assembly, alignment, or calibration
  • User defined four-color fluorescence, transmitted light and color applications
  • Autofocus, Z-stack capability, time-lapse imaging, live-cell imaging with onstage incubator and single-click multi-channel capture
  • On-board software for fast acquisition and analysis, including confluency measurements and automated cell counting
  • Access to Thermo Fisher Cloud imaging app
  • Semi-automatic, less manual contact

Learn about software capability with M5000 Imaging System

Powerful, intuitive software

All EVOS microscopes come with onboard software that allows you to view, capture, and process images quickly and easily. Featuring a user interface and workflow designed by biologists for biologists, the software gives you full control over your fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield, and phase contract images.

On the M7000 and M5000, the onboard software offers pinpoint operational control and powerful image processing tools such as cell counting, confluence, Z-stack visualization, and time-lapse movies. These tools operate intuitively with minimal training, aided by onboard SmartStart guides. Autofocus and other automated tools save time and effort. The M7000 adds image tiling and stitching as well as fully automated capabilities for image acquisition and processing when scanning tissue slices or acquiring data from multiwell plate vessels. The ability to analyze images in batch mode allows you to seamlessly process large quantities of data.

Images captured using the EVOS M5000 Imaging System

Figure 1. Proliferation (EdU labeled) with Movat’s Pentachrome staining in FFPE 8 μm rat intestine section. A transverse section through the crypts shows proliferating cell locally abundant near the base of the crypts and diminishing with distance. Proliferating cells (brown) signal is visible against Movat’s Pentachrome staining consisting of Verhoeff-Van Gieson’s staining of elastin (black) and nuclei (purplish gray), alcoholic saffron staining of collagen (yellow), alcian blue staining of mucins marking the goblet cells (blue), and crocein scarlet–acid fuchsin staining of muscle and red blood cells (red). Image was acquired with a 10X objective using the RGB-mode illumination on an EVOS M5000 microscope.

Figure 2. Differentiated mouse embryonic stem cells. The image shows mouse embryonic stem cells that have spontaneously differentiated into the three germ layers. The ectoderm was stained using anti-TUJ1 antibody, and the mesoderm was stained using anti-SMA antibody. Staining was done using secondary antibodies labeled with Alexa Fluor 488 and 555, respectively, and nuclei were stained using DAPI. Images were acquired at 10X using an EVOS M5000 microscope.

EVOS M5000 – 3D deconvolution and analysis. HeLa Cells were labeled with ViewRNA probes (FITC against B2M and Cy5 against RPL13). Following counter-staining with DAPI, Z-stacks were acquired on an EVOS M5000 microscope with a 100x oil immersion objective. Image stacks were deconvolved using the 3D deconvolution module in Celleste 5.0 Image Analysis software. The animation was also generated in Celleste 5.0 following creation of iso surfaces and clipping planes.
