Analysis
Secondary masks quantify mean fluorescent signal from labeled targets. Subpopulation analysis identifies cells responding to treatment.

Peripherals

 
Gas controller
The compact gas controller maintains control of CO2 and O2 levels for live cell assays.
Dual reagent injector
The dual reagent injector module allows fast cellular reactions to be imaged or detected.
 
 
Angled injector tips
Angled injector tips protect cell monolayers from shear stress during injection.
Autoscratch
AutoScratch Wound Making Tool automates cell migration and scratch wound assays with Cytation.
