Long-Term Live Cell Imaging

Long-Term Live Cell Imaging

The Incucyte S3 is an automated microscope located within a standard cell culture incubator and is of particular interest for low resolution, long-term, live cell imaging. It allows the independent measurement and analysis of up to 6 plates or experiments at the same time. It is the method of choice for long-term observation of spheroid and organoid development.
