Lionheart FXAutomated Microscope
Lionheart FX with Augmented Microscopy automates your imaging workflow to yield amazing images and powerful data. Automated image capture starts with image-based and laser autofocus, plus auto LED and exposure. Automated image pre-processing optimizes images for downstream analysis, from cell counting to characterization of subcellular details.
Four imaging modes, multiple imaging processes
With brightfield, color brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescence imaging in four channels – and nearly twenty available filter/LED cubes, Lionheart FX offers fantastic versatility that isn’t limited to image capture. Follow your imaging processes through z-stacking to z-projection, montage collection to stitching and digital phase contrast to analysis, all one hardware and software platform.
Label-free cell counting
It’s fast and simple to count live cells using the available high contrast brightfield option. Higher contrast allows a direct and label-free method for object identification using Gen5 software to count cells and characterize cell proliferation in kinetic studies.
Kinetic live cell assay support
Several options are available to support live cell assays with Lionheart FX, including an environmental cover to maintain temperature and gas levels within the system. Long-term live cell kinetics are supported, using the unique humidity chamber that fits on the stage itself, keeping the live cell in a completely nurturing environment. A dual reagent injector provides quick inject/image capability for observing fast reactions.
More than 20 imaging filter/LED cubes
BioTek has the most comprehensive selection of imaging filter and LED cubes available for use with our Lionheart and Cytation imagers. This large selection of colors enables image capture for a broad range of applications. Download our convenient Imaging Cube Selection Guide here.
Quick installation and easy setup
Fifteen minutes is all it takes to install and set up Lionheart FX for image capture and analysis. The filter/LED cubes and objectives are accessed from the front panel, and tool-free connections for injectors, gas control and the environmental cover add to the easy installation. Its small size takes up minimal benchtop space.
