Easily track and go back

Catalog number: AMF5000SV

The EVOS M5000 microscope is exceptional for cell imaging labs across a broad range of applications and imaging requirements. With its powerful software tools, the EVOS M5000 helps revolutionize your imaging workflow. 


The Stage View feature allows you to track your location as you manually move the stage and search for your cells. Areas of interest can be marked, saved, and returned to, at any time. Designed for biologists by biologists, the EVOS M5000 with Stage View is remarkably easy to use.

New stage-tracking intelligence

Watch this video to see how you can effortlessly locate, track, and record points of interest.


In addition to the common features of all EVOS Microscopes, the EVOS M5000 offers:

Sample location tracking intelligence

Drop pins to simplify returning to precise stage locations with proprietary EVOS Stage View software  

Easy self-installation

No maintenance, assembly, alignment, or calibration

Advanced color options

User-defined 4-color fluorescence, transmitted light, and color images

Thermo Fisher Connect™ connectivity

Images can be uploaded directly from the EVOS M5000 instrument to a Thermo Fisher Connect account. Any new software upgrade can also be downloaded directly in connected instruments. Additional post-acquisition image analysis can be performed via the EVOS Image Analysis application on Thermo Fisher Connect.

Optimal Performance

Autofocus, Z-stack capability, time-lapse imaging, and single-click multichannel capture

Biosafety cabinet compatible

Can be used within a biosafety cabinet or hood


EVOS Onstage Incubator

Compatibility for live-cell analysis with precise control of temperature, humidity, and gases


Automated cell counting and confluence measurements in the onboard software

Enhanced ease of use

Most operational functions can be controlled through software, helping eliminate the need to touch the instrument except to mount the slide and adjust the stage

Celleste Image Analysis Software option

Compatibility for advanced image processing and analysis, including 2D and 3D deconvolution and 3D visualization and analysis

Location intelligence

The proprietary EVOS Stage View feature allows you to track your location as you manually move the stage and search for your cells. Areas of interest can be pinned, saved and returned to, at any time. Sets of pins can be saved as a map so you can power off the instrument and return to the saved locations later. The software lets you load a saved map and easily re-locate areas of interest in your sample. 

Easily return to the same cells with a manual microscope using location intelligence of the Stage View feature of the EVOS M5000 Imaging System. U2OS cells incubated with Invitrogen CellLight Tubulin-GFP, BacMam 2.0 (Cat. No. C10613) and CellLight Nucleus-RFP, BacMam 2.0 (Cat. No. C10603) were treated with 1 mM paclitaxel. Multiple pins were placed using Stage View at time 0; cells located at pin 9 were easily located and imaged at 2.5, 5, and 10 hours.
