Live cell imaging with the lumanette enables the simple automation of routine cell culture time lapse applications.

lumanette uses 24 independent cameras and 24 overhead LEDs to acquire brightfield images quickly. 24 and 6-well microplates as well as flasks and dishes can be used. The software performs analysis in parallel with acquisition; automatically updating cell growth and migration at each time point. Image series can be viewed and downloaded. Cell culture status can be comfortably checked from your PC – anywhere and anytime without entering the lab. The space-saving and easy-to-handle device is compact and can be easily placed in standard cell culture incubators for the most robust time lapse environment.

The lumanette is your incubator imager with an array of 24 cameras and 24 overhead LEDs for crisp transmitted images for automated remote monitoring of cell cultures. The compact and lightweight device offers space-saving and uncomplicated use. Data capture, display and analysis is performed 24/7 in real time. Images are available for viewing and download in PNG format. The lumanette is perfect for routine measurements such as confluence, proliferation, doubling rate, wound healing, and migration. Save hands-on time and learn more with time lapse video of your cell culture.

Leave your cells where they belong – in the incubator.

Your cell cultures can remain in the incubator during the entire time lapse experiment. User interventions are avoided, preventing fluctuations in temperature and CO₂ and lowers the risk of contamination. Use the lumanette within your hypoxia chamber or sterile isolation glovebox.

  • Track and analyze time lapse data

    Cell confluence and photos are recorded with a minimum interval of 10 min. Long term measurement and automated data acquisition increase the validity of your assay by increasing the number of tracked and analyzed data points. Zoom in to the cell level, capture high quality images and create time-lapse videos.

  • Let the software do the work

    Algorithms evaluate the confluence of each image and calculate cell number objectively and in real time, including comparing statistics between wells. This creates consistent, reproducible and reliable results.

  • Automate routine applications

    Let lumanette record and analyze your cell cultures: Just set up the experiment and walk away. Check your cell cultures and data analyses anytime from anywhere without going into the lab.Perform long term measurements over time periods of a few hours up to over a week.

    Stay flexible & save space

    The compact and lightweight lumanette can be quickly moved or removed from the incubator and leaves plenty of space for other vessels – or more lumanettes!
