Invitrogen EVOS M7000 Imaging System

Powerful, flexible, intuitive, fast, and fully automated system

The Invitrogen EVOS M7000 Imaging System brings high performance and fast, automated imaging right to your lab bench. This system has been designed with advanced capabilities to simplify demanding cell-based imaging applications such as live-cell analysis, image tiling, and z-stacking, so you can focus on acquiring images and data rather than instrument operation.

  • Speed—scan a 96-well plate in 3 fluorescence channels in less than 5 minutes
  • Flexibility—customize the system with more than 20 user-changeable LED light cubes, dual cameras (monochrome and color), a variety of objectives ranging from 1.25x to 100x, and multiple vessel holders
  • Time-lapse live-cell imaging—onstage incubator option for precise control of temperature, humidity, and gases for normoxic or hypoxic conditions allows a wide range of biological studies under physiological conditions
  • Two cameras, no compromises—all systems come with two cameras: a dedicated high-sensitivity monochrome camera optimized for fluorescence imaging and quantitation, and a dedicated high-resolution color camera optimized for colorimetric imaging
  • Area view—move rapidly and seamlessly between single-field mode and low- and high-magnification scan modes to easily define and capture the area of interest
  • Automation—time-saving features such as autofocus, rapid stage movement, and automated routines help reduce time to complete experiments, allowing high throughput, high data quality, and improved experimental reproducibility
  • Data analysis—extensive quantitative imaging and statistical analysis in combination with Invitrogen Celleste Image Analysis Software, an optional advanced software package offering powerful tools for image segmentation and classification that can be used for cell counting and measuring changes

Images captured using the EVOS M7000 Imaging System

Figure 2. EdU labeling combined with Movat's Pentachrome stain shows compatibility of DAB with multiple color pentachrome staining. Rat intestinal crypts shows proliferating cell locally abundant near the base of the crypts and diminishing with distance. Proliferating cells (brown) signal are 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).
