ZOE™ Fluorescent Cell Imager #1450031



Stand-alone fluorescent cell imager, includes instrument, power supply, USB flash drive; 120–240 V



Use the ZOE Fluorescent Cell Imager for routine cell culture and imaging applications.

With brightfield and multichannel fluorescence, an integrated digital camera, and a touch-screen interface, this inverted microscope makes cell imaging simple, fast, and intuitive.

Features of the ZOE Cell Imager include:

  • Simplified cell imaging — the intuitive touch-screen interface allows users to view cells, capture images, and create multichannel merges with minimal training
  • Flexible operation — one brightfield and three fluorescent channels enable use for routine cell culture applications as well as more sophisticated imaging applications
  • Fluorescence at your bench — light shield permits fluorescence imaging in ambient light
  • Robust construction — fully integrated system with long-life LEDs, ready for intensive daily use
  • LED light sources — thousands of hours of illumination that are instantly ready after power-on
  • Large imaging area — the motorized stage and wide field of view allow you to see more of your sample, faster
  • Small footprint — compact size accommodates crowded lab benches

Illumination light sources

  • Blue channel uses a UV LED
  • Green channel uses a blue LED
  • Red channel uses a green LED
  • Brightfield channel uses a ring of multiple green LEDs for reduced chromatic aberration

Fluorescence channels

  • Blue channel: excitation, 355/40 nm; emission: 433/36 nm
  • Green channel: excitation, 480/17 nm; emission: 517/23 nm
  • Red channel: excitation, 556/20 nm; emission, 615/61 nm

The ZOE Fluorescent Cell Imager is compatible with many commonly used fluorescent dyes and proteins.
