Olympus VivaView

A vital complement to endpoint data analyses, this powerful live imaging system makes it possible to collect fluorescent and differential interference contrast (DIC) time-lapse images of live cells in stable environmental conditions.

Cultured cells can be imaged without ever leaving the incubator.

A unique incubator with O2 and CO2 control is outfitted with optics that provide superior deconvolved fluorescence and brightfield capabilities, including Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) over extended time periods for up to eight 35-mm coverslip-bottomed Petri dishes. Image acquisition and analyses of cell differentiation and activity are performed using MetaMorph imaging software.
