Singapore: GE Healthcare Life Sciences has launched IN Cell Analyzer 2200 for super-fast and sensitive high-content cell imaging. GE's new analyzer is a high-speed, flexible, modular imaging system suitable for both investigative microscopy and automated high-content screening of organelles, cells, tissues and whole organisms. The analyzer can be configured to the specific needs of the researcher, with a wide-range of optional modules and accessories available.
The IN Cell Analyzer 2200 can image a two-coloured 96-well plate assay in less than 2.5 minutes and a one-colour 1536 plate in under 20 mins. This speed is possible due to a bright, seven-wavelength solid-state light source and scientific-grade CMOS camera coupled with an optimized stage and efficient, easy-to-use control software. Smart design features such as preview scan also save time in assay set up by enabling the user to locate wells, samples or regions of interest quickly and efficiently.
The flexibility of the IN Cell Analyzer 2200 enables the system to be used in multiple modes including whole well imaging, online cell counting, and manual microscope. This allows researchers to optimize assay set up efficiently and develop and conduct both simple and complex high-throughput high-content assays. The system is designed to maximise the quantitative accuracy of the captured images for any sample type, including image restoration for dim samples.
