Experience a Better Perspective with Lionheart Automated Microscopes
With Lionheart Automated Microscopes and Gen5™ Software, it’s easier than ever to capture high quality images and run powerful analysis. Lionheart is available with or without environmental controls: Lionheart™ FX is ideal for live cell imaging workflows, while Lionheart LX meets the needs of automated endpoint microscopy. The power of Lionheart is in Augmented Microscopy™, which automatically processes and analyzes images to generate quantitative data for a broad range of applications.
Let’s take a new look at microscopy, with a fresh perspective…a better perspective. With the Lionheart Automated Microscope and Gen5 Software, it’s easier than ever to capture high quality images and run powerful analysis. It’s a simple, no fuss way to “do” microscopy.
Traditional microscopy is powerful, but can be challenging…
Just imagine sitting at the bench, visualizing your images without spending hours in a dark room… Or automatically counting cells without using a tedious manual clicker… Or working with a live cell assay setup without hardware and software complexity
Some manual inverted microscopes can be expanded for digital microscopy, by adding a camera, automated stage and other hardware.
Live cell assays add a greater level of complexity with additional components required to help maintain temperature, gas and humidity levels.
Now is a great time to discover an alternative to the traditional, complex and expensive microscope systems. Lionheart Automated Microscope, with its affordable, integrated hardware design and easy to use, powerful software offers a better perspective for endpoint and live cell microscopy.
This compact system integrates all the major microscopy components into an automated platform for digital widefield microscopy
This design ensures quick setup and implementation, with a short learning curve. There is easy access to the automated 6-objective turret and the 4-position LED/filter cubes. The environmental cover maintains temperature, gas and humidity levels for live cell workflows.
Up to four color channels capture endpoint and time lapse images in fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield or phase contrast. The magnification range is from 1.25x to 100x air and oil immersion.
Beyond capturing beautiful images, the power of Lionheart is in Augmented Microscopy, which automatically processes and analyzes images to generate quantitative data for a broad range of applications.
For example, Gen5 automatically counts cells as shown here, using a pre-processing step to increase contrast. The software tracks and plots cell counts over time. Samples with 3D structures are imaged using Z stacks. The Z-projected images are analyzed and the data graphed all in Gen5. Large samples, like H&E stained tissue slices are captured in tiled images, then automatically stitched to a single image for both micro and macro analysis.
With its integrated, compact design, Lionheart is surprisingly affordable - a fraction of the cost of a manual system equipped with multiple add-on modules for automation and live cell imaging.
Lionheart Automated Microscope is available with or without environmental controls: Lionheart FX is ideal for live cell imaging workflows, while Lionheart LX meets the needs of automated endpoint microscopy. The Lionheart line offers affordable microscopy for a broad range of applications.
Lionheart bring your science to life, capturing spectacular images, z-stacks, montages and time lapse sequence with ease. Lionheart Automated Microscopes offer a new perspective…a better perspective that will help your laboratory reach its research goals.
