Sartorius Incucyte SX5

Sartorius has launched its Incucyte SX5 Live-Cell Analysis system. The firm said that the tool applies novel optics, a new line of paired reagents, and purpose-built software to help researchers draw greater insights from live cell experiments. The Incucyte system has five different fluorescence channels, of which Sartorius said up to three can be used at once. Because the optical module uses long wavelength near infrared fluorescence, researchers will be able to image sensitive cell types on the platform up to months without requiring to be removed from the incubator.
