Cambridge Analytical Instruments unveils user-friendly microscope incubator and controller

Cambridge Analytical Instruments : 26 June, 2008  (New Product)
New start-up Cambridge Analytical Instruments has launched the company’s Microscope Incubation System for Live Cell Imaging which has been designed to offer a convenient, easy to use, well regulated, small and sterile incubator.
Capable of continuous operation for many days, the system enables extended time lapse Microscopy of live cells. The instrument’s design permits any Microscopy technique to be applied, including confocal, epi-fluorescence, bright field, dark field and DIC imaging.

The incubator is designed to permit long term, high resolution optical imaging of cells - and other organisms such as embryos.

The instrument’s sterile, autoclavable Petri dish design makes contamination of the sample impossible, and simplifies sample handling and day to day operation.

The incubator system consists of a composite metal+polymer chamber the same size as a 96 hole well plate (ANSI/SBS 2004) and a control box. Custom incubator geometries can be made to order.

The incubator holds two 35mm diameter Petri dishes: one acts as a reference cell, the other contains the sample to be incubated. Standard 35 mm glass bottom Petri dishes are sealed with a proprietary lid design, comprising a gas permeable membrane. The lid and membrane are autoclavable and
can be reused many times.

Once located in the incubator cassette, conditions in the Petri dish are maintained at optimal temperature, pH, and humidity conditions.

The system’s control unit features an easy to use, intuitively operated interface, from which CO2 flow rates, temperature can all be easily controlled and displayed via a front panel display. If required, data can be logged on a PC by connecting a USB cable between the controller and the PC. Continuous observation of cell development can be made over hours, days and even weeks.
