The Incucyte® SX5 is our most advanced application offering.  

Study complex immune-tumor cell interactions, synaptic activity in neuronal co-cultures, metabolism in cancer cells, and much more — with a single platform. 
See more information in every sample with the new Incucyte® SX5 featuring patent-pending optics. Do more with up to 5 different fluorescent channels specifically designed for live-cell analysis.
Enjoy more colors. More reagents. More purpose-built software for more applications. Derive deeper, physiologically relevant information about your cells. 

Never miss powerful insights again.

Conventional approaches to cell analysis only capture a single time point, enabling only single-point and end-point measurements, and cells are perturbed or destroyed as part of the assay process.

The Incucyte® SX5 Live-Cell Analysis System automatically acquires and analyzes images around the clock, enabling you to derive deeper and more physiologically relevant information about your cells, plus real-time kinetic data — without ever removing your cells from the incubator. Change can happen in an instant. See what your cells are doing and when they do it. 

The Incucyte® SX5 instrument, proprietary assays and reagents provide you with the ability to gain new insights into biological processes via real-time, quantitative analysis of live cells. 

Furthermore, the Incucyte® SX5 accommodates multiple users and applications seamlessly and combines information-rich, image-based analysis with the convenience and throughput of microplate assays. Incucyte® technology is featured in over 3,000 peer-reviewed publications in journals.
