Compact & Turn-Key Imaging Solutions: IncuScope

 

What is IncuScope?

IncuScope is a compact inverted fluorescence microscope that fits on a shelf inside an incubator or inside a hood. It has a built-in camera and LED light source. This system runs on a laptop/desktop using just one USB cable, allows capturing fluorescence and bright field images, and has several options of objective lenses and fluorescent filters. The IncuScope is the most simple and affordable live cell imaging device in the market.

 

Features                 

  • Fits inside a hood or an incubator (saves heating stage, operates in natural environment of incubator and sterile condition)
  • USB-based camera & LED illumination
  • Avoids photo-toxicity & photo-bleaching (digital shutter)
  • The best performance/price live cell imaging device in the market
  • Extremely simple and user-friendly software & hardware
  • Remote control (browser based, iPhone or Android Apps to see inside an incubator!)

Introduction

BIOIMAGER IncuScope (Incubator Microscope) 500: Small, Smart & Simple 

 

What is IncuScope?

The IncuScope is a low price, small, compact, USB-based, portable digital inverted brightfield and epi-fluorescence microscope. The microscope fits on a shelf inside an incubator or inside a hood. It has a built-in digital camera and light source. This runs on a laptop or desktop using just one USB cable and captures fluorescence and/or brightfield images. Avilable with a variety of objective lenses from 1.25x to 100x. The software allows doing time-lapse study and controlling the light to turn on/off to avoid photo-bleaching and photo-toxicity. Thus, this saves paying for heating stage or miniature incubator, mechanical shutter, digital camera and fluorescence attachment which are important components for live cell imaging application. Its price is the lowest in the live cell imaging field. A side-by-side comparison with similar products such as Lumascope, Juli, EVOS, this has better images. When it comes to the price, this is the most economic choice. Last but not least, you can check your cell culture inside an incubator via Internet or smart-phone if you connect the IncuScope computer to Internet / WiFi and use our remote-control software.

Why IncuScope?

"There is no greatness where there is not simplicity" Leo Tolstoy, quoted in The week.  

  • Simple: the most simple digital microscope in the world, requires no setup, almost no training, instant installation, familiar PC environment. 
  • Affordable: The lowest price video time-lapse microscope in the world. 
  • Your cells are always happy since they never leave incubator.
  • Using our remote-control software/app you can see inside your incubator via Internet or iPhone, Android, Blackberry
 
 
Highlighted Applications:  
  • Long-term live cell imaging in single and time lapse modes
  • Cell doubling and movement measurements
  • Stem cell differentiation movies
  • More sophisticated uses are also easily achieved with the IncuScope: cell counting or hemocytometry and growth monitoring. Using the IncuScope, it is possible to monitor cells remotely through the web from within a tissue culture incubator, overnight, away from the lab. 
 
Unlimited Scientific and Routine Applications 
  • Microfluidics field, lab-on-chip, MEMS
  • Viral infections, HIV/AIDS study and all level III safety labs
  • Embryology, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) studies
  • Bacteriology
  • Stem Cell Colony formation  study (long term live cell imaging)
  • Transfections, knock-out studies such as siRNA tagged 
  • Drug discovery research and clinical labs 
  • Field microscopy, such as marine biology
  • Proliferation assay
  • Kinetic cell migration assay
  • Kinetic angiogenesis
  • Cell invasion
  • Cytotoxicity
  • Cell culture quality control
  • Apoptosis

Colorful brigtfield images (avilable with iS500BF model only)

Features
Features 
  • Yields a magnification on familiar laptop displays of approximately 20× with a field of view of 1 mm square.
  • Standard filter sets
  • Brightfield capability included. Phase Contrast is optional.
  • Time-lapse study with turn on/off light (without using a shutter!)
  • USB 3.0 interface, enabling easy integration with larger systems and remote monitoring
  • Small enough to fit on a desk, lab bench, in an incubator or tissue culture hood (approximately 190 x 125 x 115 mm or 7.5 x 5 x 4.5 in).
  • #1 Performance/Price in the Market; it saves paying to heating stage, shutter and camera, e.g. compare it with Zeiss

Price: The best price in the imaging market: 

    • LumaScope LS500 ( > $8,000)
    • Juli (> $15,000)
    • EVOS (> $27,000)
