Product Review

  • “It is absolutely fantastic! Its ease of operation, intuitive nature, compact size, rapid imaging and no need for stains make this a system I would certainly recommend and it would certainly support many different kinds of research. In fact, this system would be valuable for secondary students studying biology too.”

3D Cell Explorer

A disruptive technology which, for the first time ever, allows users to explore the inside of a living cell in 3D without the need for any labeling or other invasive methods.

The 3D Cell Explorer is a high speed, high resolution and non-invasive tool that can look deep inside biological systems. This allows users to record stunning 3D images of entire cells in just seconds and with a higher resolution than any conventional light microscope on the market.

Non-invasive characterization of live cells in physiological conditions: The 3D Cell Explorer measures the quantitative refractive index of cell organelles in seconds. Hence, it is possible to do non-invasive in vitro imaging of almost any kind of cells with up to 30 μm depth of reconstruction. This allows for biological features to be segmented based on their physical characteristics.

Label-free continuous observation of cell processes from seconds to weeks: Study cell life cycle processes of growth, division & death in 3D and 4D. Thanks to a dedicated top-stage incubator you can monitor cell compartments and their kinetics and dynamics in real-time at every second without interfering with their natural physiology.

Multiplexing: High resolution and high sensitivity characterization of multiple cell organelles based on their refractive index. Explore and measure up to 8 cell organelles simultaneously with unprecedented detail and resolution, marker-free and preparation-free based on their own physical density.

3D Data Sets: Multiplexing / unique organelle segmentation / Quantitative data analysis

Save Experimental Time: No sample preparation / short setup time / fast & easy acquisition
