Lumascope 720

Digital imaging system with automated stage and three colour fluorescence

The Etaluma family of inverted microscopes provide a revolutionary solution to high content imaging analysis. The New Lumascope 720 builds on previous 3-colour capabilities by incorporating an automated XY stage with motorised focus, thus enabling autofocus and z-stacking

Automated XY stage with motorised autofocus and Z-stacks
Walk-away automation with the ability to tile or undertake time-lapse on regions of interest

Versatile and compact design
Built to fit and operate in challenging locations, including inside incubators, biological safety cabinets, and environmental control workstations

Solid state optics
Minimises pixel shift and eliminates experimental artefacts

Semrock Brightline® Pinkel filter set with LED light sources
No need to maintain costly and cumbersome arc lamps or mercury bulbs

Optimised for 405 nm, 488 nm, and 594 nm excitation
Ability to image Blue (BFP, DAPI), Green (FITC, Fluo-4, GFP) & Red (mCherry, Texas Red)

Universal file formats
Compatible with multiple analysis programs (e.g. ImageJ/Fiji, Lumaquant, Image-Pro Premier)​

Cell growth and confluence, cell migration and wound healing, determining transfection efficiency, tracking and quantifying protein expression, following cell differentiation, high content analysis and Intravital studies
