TIME-LAPSE IMAGE ACQUISITION OF UNDIFFERENTIATED EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS

Olympus_500x250
Undifferentiated embryonic stem cells rapidly proliferate and are very delicate. As such, phototoxicity during time-lapse imaging may damage them and reduce proliferation speed. It is therefore very difficult to perform time-lapse imaging of embryonic stem cell proliferation under physiologically accurate conditions. 
 
The FLUOVIEW FV3000 microscope possesses sensitive detection devices and a highly efficient light path, thus facilitating low-phototoxic time-lapse imaging using extremely low laser power.
