Tired of complicated microscopes?

Easy. Fast. Affordable.

Designed with input from researchers who use fluorescence microscopy, the Invitrogen EVOS FLoid Cell Imaging Station captures high-quality, three-color fluorescent cell images right at your benchtop.

It is so simple to use, even novice users can collect data in just a few clicks of the mouse.

  • Simplicity—the intuitive, multilingual user interface allows anyone to capture images
  • Speed—get results quickly, without warm-up, cool-down, or filter changes
  • Convenience—capture and print images on your bench, rather than in the darkroom 
  • Robustness—no moving parts and long-life LEDs for reliable day-to-day use
