The Thermo Scientific CellInsight Personal Cell Imager is designed to provide the benefits of cellular imaging in one simple-to-use, low-cost platform.
The instrument's straightforward and streamlined workflow enables simple
two-click image acquisition, autofocus, scanning, and analysis of a sample
The system features a unique solid state illumination source, high-efficiency
filters, and a custom optical design to deliver high-quality imaging and
virtually maintenance-free operation.
The instrument is designed for high throughput. Typical plate scan times are
less than four minutes for a 96-well plate, while a 1,536-well plate can be
scanned in just over one hour for a three-color assay. Robot compatibility
ensures walk-away operation.
The platform features Thermo Scientific iDEV workflow software to eliminate
assay development bottlenecks. This software brings quantitative image
analysis to cell biologists, using pre-built biologically relevant
measurement tools that do not require programming or special knowledge.
The CellInsight personal cell imaging (PCI) platform provides the cell biology
researcher with a simple-to-operate, low-cost, bench-top automated imaging
capability. By uniting powerful optical hardware, quantitative image
analysis, informatics and automation with a range of fluorescent probes,
engineered cell lines and assay kits, cell biology researchers can
investigate hundreds of cellular targets and advance their knowledge of cell
