Stem cell screening inside the incubator.
With conventional cell monitoring procedures, a culture vessel has to be taken out of the incubator for microscope observation, where cells are subject to stressful environmental changes and mechanical disturbance. Researchers then have to spend additional time repositioning the vessel to find previous observation points. Nikon's BioStation CT eliminates these problems by combining culture and imaging environments to enable accurate monitoring of individual cells and colonies while maintaining stable environmental conditions. The BioStation CT is an ideal monitoring solution for cell types that require minimal handling and stable culture conditions such as stem cells.
