DE:The ImageXpress Pico digital microscope is a fully automated (live) cell imaging system that combines high-resolution imaging with powerful analysis. Multi-day, time-lapse, and live-cell assays can be run using the onboard environmental system with options for humidity, CO2, and O2 (hypoxia) control with real-time monitoring of environmental state, ensuring optimal assay conditions. Whether running fluorescence imaging or brightfield assays, the automated imager also features a comprehensive range of preconfigured protocols for (live) cell-based assays.
