Lionheart FXAutomated Microscope
The Agilent BioTek Lionheart FX automated microscope is a compact system for a broad range of imaging workflows. It offers up to 60x air, in addition to 60x and 100x oil immersion magnification. Combined with fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield, and phase contrast imaging channels, the imager provides maximum application reach. An optional environment control cover provides incubation to 40 °C, in addition to effective containment for CO2/O2 control to enable performance of cell-based assays. A humidity chamber can be added to optimize conditions for long-term live cell imaging applications. An available dual reagent injector also facilitates rapid kinetic assays.

Lionheart FX is designed for easy implementation of a broad range of fixed and live cell assay workflows. BioTek’s concept of Augmented Microscopy brings automated image capture, processing, analysis and publication-ready images and data to the benchtop – for many applications, including these important areas:
The Scratch Assay Starter Kit automates cell migration and wound healing assays:
The Scratch Assay App automatically calculates % confluence, wound width and maximum healing rate (max V).

Environmental controls for live cell imaging
Autofocus customized for your sample types and labware
A. Image-based autofocus is available on all Agilent BioTek imaging systems. It focuses on the plane of highest contrast in the sample, including “shifting” biology within the well.
Dual-reagent injector module
The dual-reagent injector module for Lionheart FX allows fast cellular reactions to be imaged after the addition of a reagent.

Customer SpotlightTaking a Close Look at the Basics of Life with the Help of Lionheart FX
For the curious at heart, science represents an endless reservoir of questions to ask. But sometimes in the quest for knowledge, researchers can overlook the most fundamental yet complex inquiries. This is where Dr. Joseph Larkin aims to make his mark.
At the convergence of Boston University’s Biology and Physics Departments and also as part of the University’s Biological Design Center in Boston, Massachusetts, Dr. Larkin’s new laboratory poses the questions, “How – and why – do living things proactively and reactively interact with each other and their environment to perpetuate?”
