Long-Term Live Cell Imaging

Sartorius Incucyte S3

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. Available objectives include 4x, 10x and 20x. These objectives are compatible with most standard cell culture plate formats and plates of to 96- or 384-wells are also supported. For the list of currently supported substrates please see (link for download). Channels available for imaging and analysis are standard brightfield/phase contrast, as well as two channels for fluorescence. Details about fluorescence can be seen below:

Color Excitation Emission Possible Fluorochromes
Green fluorescence 440-480 nm 504-544 nm GFP, YFP, CellTracker Green, CFSE, FITC
Red fluorescence 565-605 nm 625-705 nm mRFP, mKate2, mCherry, CellTracker Red, Alexa Fluor 594

Note: The red fluorescence channel is suboptimal for the detection of fluorescence proteins such as td tomato and turbo RFP.
