Características principales

Compatible with multiple sterilization technologies

BioStudio-mini has an excellent waterproof and chemical resistance design. The microscope can be sterilized with hydrogen peroxide gas, formalin and/or UV. The compact design facilitates the installation of BioStudio-mini in various isolators, incubators and biological safety cabinets.

Cell friendly

The microscope stage is completely stationary during image acquisition process eliminating unwanted mechanical disturbances to the sample. Internal optics move to acquire images at different Z positions. A cell-friendly red LED is used for sample illumination, and only turns on during image acquisition.

Simple interface

Observe results from a personal computer with a cable connection to the main body and control box.

Suggested applications in stem cell biology

Observation of cell differentiation, cell division, colony formation, infiltration of cancer cells, scratch assays, and more.
