Water immersion objectives for the ImageXpress Micro Confocal system

We’re excited to announce the release of automated water immersion imaging technology for the ImageXpress® Micro Confocal High-Content Imaging System. Scientists can now capture greater physiologically-relevant phenotypic data for 3D and thick tissue samples. This technology will enable both acquisition and analysis of 3D cell model assays such as spheroids, organoids, and organ-on-a-chip biology, increasing signal up to four times, improving z-resolution, and decreasing optical aberrations for sharper, crisper images.

Application Spotlight

Monitor multiple stages of apoptosis with live cell kinetic imaging

The study of apoptosis is a critical aspect of drug discovery and development. Additionally, studying the relationship between apoptosis and other factors, such as oxidative stress, is crucial for understanding specific diseases that are associated with the dysregulation of apoptosis.

See how we ran two apoptosis assays to study the cytotoxic effects of anti-cancer compounds on HeLa cells. Long-term time-lapse imaging was performed on the ImageXpress® Pico system. On-board environmental control maintained live cell conditions by monitoring CO
2, O2, temperature, and humidity.

Assessment of antioxidant and antidiabetic properties of Agaricus blazei Murill extracts

Agaricus blazei Murill (ABM), a medicinal mushroom, has beneficial effects on various human metabolic diseases. The objective of this research was to evaluate the antioxidant and antidiabetic properties of ABM extracts (ethanol extract and ethyl acetate extract).

See how the SpectraMax® i3x reader was used for a
bsorbance readings.
