Lionheart FX Automated Microscope

Traditionally, cellular processes have been visualized by fixation and staining of cells. However, live cell assays offer kinetic visualization and multi-parametric information concerning many biological processes. Lionheart FX Is an affordable, easy-to-use solution that also brings remarkable clarity to live cell microscopy. How? By capturing real time cellular dynamics as they happen and automating image analysis to quantify these processes. From monitoring dynamics within a cell, such as protein translocation, to macro cell behavior like cell migration or wound healing, Lionheart FX can do it all while maintaining environmental conditions to ensure cell health.

BioTek’s Lionheart FX Automated Live Cell Imager delivers high resolution images, time lapse videos and meaningful qualitative and quantitative data from live cell assays.

BioTek’s Gen5 3.0 Image Prime software controls Lionheart FX to automatically capture amazing images, analyze and annotate them, all in real time. A built-in movie maker provides a seamless method of transforming time-lapse images into video with unprecedented ease.

Advanced image analysis in Gen5 3.0 includes automatic detection and segmentation of the nucleus and cytoplasm for each cell, with key object-level measurements. This makes Lionheart FX and Gen5 3.0 an essential system for many important live cell applications like translocation assays, apoptosis, transfection efficiency and many others.

Kinetic live cell assays are optimized with Lionheart’s unique environment control cover, providing the temperature and CO2/O2 control critical to many live cell assays. A humidity chamber helps keep cells viable during long term imaging. Cells can be imaged at up to 20 frames per second to monitor fast events, or over several days, on single cell culture vessels or in microplates for a wide range of live-cell applications. A unique automated injection system is available to observe cellular reactions immediately after the addition of a reagent trigger.

Lionheart FX is fully integrated with features typically found in complicated live-cell microscopy systems made up of multiple hardware and software modules. Its compact design offers quick installation and setup, without requiring extensive training.

The new Lionheart FX is the all inclusive automated digital microscope for live cell biologists, capturing amazing cellular images and extracting valuable information. Lionheart FX and Gen5 3.0 software offer powerful image acquisition and analysis including multi-level cell segmentation. Gen5 3.0 provides real-time image annotation and movie making tools for added convenience. With temperature, CO2/O2 and humidity control, Lionheart FX is ideal for all live cell assays. The compact system is easy to install and operate, so you can start seeing, capturing and analyzing your live cell assays effortlessly.
