Brief introduction: IS220 is an inverted biological microscope with brightfield, phase contrast and optional fluorescence imaging capabilities. It has the smallest phase contrast module among the inverted biological microscopes. It uses a smart fluorescence sliding kit which allows up to 4 filters and LEDs. The overall size of the microscope for digital imaging is just 220mm length (why this is called IS220), 245mm depth and 305mm height (8.7″ L x 10″ D x 12″ H). Thus, this easily fits inside a regular incubator, biological hood while it can be used as a stand-alone microscope on a bench.
The application of the IS220 is limitless due to its small footprint, simple use and smart design. It can control LED to turn on/off. This means you save paying for mechanical shutter to avoid photobleaching and phototixicity during the waiting time for next time point. It is an excellent choice for video time-lapse microscopy and live cell imaging. It can be used for cell culture imaging, kinetics of growth study, cell mortality rate, cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, toxicity. Microfluidics labs and lab on chip research labs or companies love this product for several reasons. Developmental biology labs, cancer cell study labs, plant cells, IVF, vet and stem cell labs find this product extremely helpful.

Reasonable Price (save 40% in comparison to the competitors).
IS220 Smart Incubator Phase Contrast Microscope
1. Phase Contrast
2. Fluorescence Module (Optional)
This microscope uses a smart epi-fluorescence module slider. The module can be with 2 or 3 channels. The two channels are B and G filters for GFP/FITC, TRITC/mCherry, or B,G, U for Dapi/Hoechst as well.
The slider is a cubic shape, sits underneath of the nosepiece, has a 3W LED for each channel. A lever can move the filter slider and brings to a right position, with a click-stop sound /touch. Other filters and LEDs are available for customization.
Plan semi-apo, plan apo and plan fluor lenses at different magnifications form 1.25x to 150x are available for customization.
The default software of cameras allows capture of images, videos and time-lapse imaging.
We offer an advanced software for live cell imaging, called IncuView, which can control the LEDs. This requires a special PCB to be attached prior shipping.
Please check “software”tab for the details of IncuView.
