Automating microscope imaging improves your throughput and helps you analyze more samples. In different laboratory contexts, automation can address different steps in the analysis workflow. For some experiments, the goal is hands-off scanning for a microwell plate. Labs with higher throughput want to see robotic plate loading. Others want tools that will count neurite branches or intracellular vesicles in an automatic and reproducible way. Thermo Fisher Scientific has the tools for any level of automation.
