I think this is the best cell biology equipment I have used.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Immune cell and neuronal cell assay

"IncuCyte really helps me get quantitative and reproducible data. The live-cell analysis system did all the repetitive, tedious work like taking pictures every 2 hours for 2 weeks which is almost impossible for me to do by myself, which makes me really get into the details of what happened in the cells after the treatment. I can monitor cells on my computer any time I like and I can make decisions based on live-cell conditions. The software created results and figures directly, saved me tons of time to do the analysis. With IncuCyte, I am more confident in my results and I have a better and more clear way way to represent my data. Sometimes you do experiments in normal ways and the results are kind of ambiguous; then with IncuCyte you get much much more detail, you get a much more clear picture to resolve the uncertainty."

Simple to use with great imaging analysis outputs.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Bioimaging core facility

"If you think it's just a microscope then you might say it's nothing special. However, most microscope systems give you 96 well movies that you have to then analyse to get the live cell data graphs. The Incucyte is a high content live-cell screening machine that gives you 96 well kinetic graphs at the end of the experiment, that also has the movies for you to watch back if you want to. It's about approaching the imaging experiment from what you want to measure and using the best tools to get there. The range of reagents are very good and it means that your experiment is just going to work. It takes just a couple of minutes to set up and experiment and the results are (once you've set up the analysis pathway once) there while the experiment is running. We have loads of microscopes in the facility, but the IncuCyte continues to be one of the most popular."

The IncuCyte S3 is like the Ferrari of all Live-Cell analysis systems. Love it!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Compound efficacy on caspase activation and cell viability

"I love the IncuCyte S3. I can monitor my experiments in real time. I also do not need to take the plates out at different time points for imaging/reading and while the IncuCyte is running, I can do other experiments. If I have questions, whether it's regarding protocols or analysis, a field application scientist from Sartorius will get back to me relatively quickly. The only drawback is the IncuCyte Analysis software is only Windows and not Mac compatible. Hopefully, this will change so I can access and analyze data from home."

Great instrument, some of the more technical uses of the machine require more teaching.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze protein expression in GFP tagged cells

"I have used this machine for about 3 years and I must say that it really streamlined my work and increased the high-throughput nature of my research. The only thing that is hard with the machine is that it cannot handle 6 96 well plates and I hope that the machine can be upgraded in the future to be able to scan them without a break. Furthermore some technical support window for just routine data analysis would be nice."

Useful tool for time-course study for certain targets/cell types.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Immune cell killing/tumor cell migration

"Pros: easy of use, useful tool for the time-course study. Cons: data analysis/resolution could be further improved. In general, IncyCyte Zoom is a great tool for capturing biology in real-time. However, the assay window might not be robust enough to screen compounds. It really depends on the biology of the targets and the cell types. The real time imaging can pickup the dynamics but the biology might need to be verified by independent means if the assay window is too small."

Solid piece of kit. A reliable workhorse for live cell imaging.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Live cell imaging, proliferation time lapse, cell death modes, wound healing

"We bought this system for our core facility a couple of years ago. We have it mounted in an incubator in our cell culture room and it is usually full. The ease of use, ability to track images from any computer, ability to generate a lot of data in a relatively small amount of time, and ability to analyze in many different modes has quickly secured its position as a user friendly workhorse of an instrument."

It became basic equipment almost instantaneously.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Basic research on molecular biology of cancer

"I purchased a IncuCyte two years ago and ever since have been extremely excited about the amount of data generated (versus the older methodologies), the reproducibility and accuracy. A recent paper on effects of inhibitors on cell proliferation and migration was accepted because we could provide IncuCyte data. We have looked at nuclear location, cell toxicity, but also migration and apoptosis. The wound maker works like a charm, although the users have to follow the instructions for this precious device. We recently changed the incubator, which now prevents too much condensation on the machine. Many colleagues are now also using our machine with succes for many different applications, showing its robustness."

Machine very user-friendly, analysis tool not so much.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Study NETosis in blood neutrophils

"Good points: The machine is very easy to use and suitable to track one or two fluorophores in real time. The pictures are of good quality. Compatible with many different types of plates and slides. Drawbacks: The maximum magnification is only 20x, making it difficult to study e.g. nucleus morphology. The built-in analysis tool is not always suitable to distinguish between different cells, and the plugin for single cell analysis is very expensive."

"It is easy to use with multiple time points continuous evaluation. No termination of the study and you can see the process. The only thing I dislike is that some cells grow on top of each other, which cannot be detected accurately by IncuCyte."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Real time quantification of apoptotic or necroptotic cell death

"Over the year we have used at least 3 generations of IncuCyte instruments: FLR, zoom and now the S3 model. It has showed increased speed, versatility and so far improved reliability. Our laboratory productivity performance is increased and we have already published data generated with our IncuCytes in several journals. In summary, we strongly recommend this instrument and all of Sartorius' supporting team behind it."

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze cell growth after drug treatments or gene editing

"The IncuCyte saves a ton of time! We get more reliable results in way less time than doing a manual approach. The machine was so busy our lab bought a second IncuCyte to accommodate the demand. The 96 well format allows for many replicates of different conditions all at the same time. It's also great to have images to look back on if you see an interesting phenotype. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking at cell growth."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analysis of cellular responses to drug treatment: proliferation, motility, invasion, 3D growth

"The IncuCyte ZOOM platform is essential in our Cancer Center research program. We utilize it in a "core facility" manner, so lots of labs share it. Our ZOOM is in almost constant use, running any number of applications. Almost everyone starts with proliferation studies, they are so much more informative in real-time than a static MTS assay. We multiplex others assays onto our proliferation assays, such as, apoptosis, live-dead, or any other red/green/phase application. We also employ the ImageLock plates for 2D motility or invasion in would healing-type assays. We use the ClearView plates to look at 3D motility and invasion. We grow 3D spheroids in wells to test chemotherapeutic drugs or combination therapies, in an attempt to model in vivo studies. There are several other modules that we don't currently use, but we could unlock them with a phone call to Sartorius. Flexibility is the key! This company goes beyond my wildest expectations for service and support. Many issues can be solved with a phone call and a WebEx and if not, a technician can be on-site within a day or so."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell growth assay

"I used to do a lot of cell growth assays using the tests like MTT and Alamar blue. I immediately discarded all those assays in my mind when we bought the IncuCyte S3. It can count the number of cells and the confluency in the plates, at any time point, automatically and accurately, whether the whole cell population or subpopulations are labeled with different colors. Additionally it may eventually replace many traditional assays like apoptosis, cell cycles. The instrument saves me a lot of time for my experiments and it has been amazing."

I couldn't run the experiments I have planned without it.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell killing

"The instrument has provided a very useful analysis when looking at cell killing. While CTG or other viability assays have been useful in the past, they have not been very accurate with our cell lines. The Incucyte has been a game changer as we design more experiments looking at cell killing. At this point, I couldn't run the experiments I have planned without it."

"IncyCyte system is based on real time image capture and analysis. It looks simple and very easy to use. Initially I used the machine for cell proliferation curve generation and morphology observation which is the basic function. Later on I tried to use it to detect fluorescence intensity response in my NFkB reporter cell line. It worked very well and was sensitive. The results are consistent and reliable. Recently I did an experiment for gene expression time response with different gene editing deliver system. It saved a lot of time compared with using other methods. I am sure the machine has much more potential than I expect. I am also very satisfied with the service."

It radically changed the way we analyse cell proliferation. Highly recommended.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Live-cell analysis platform to monitor cell proliferation, viability, apoptosis and a number of cell

"The IncuCyte S3 is a flexible live-cell analysis platform useful for quantitative analysis of a number of cell processes including cell proliferation, apoptosis, viability, migration, phagocytosis, etc, in 2D cultures, co-cultures, or even 3D spheroids. It is equipped with a powerful image analysis software which allows even beginners to get excellent results. The hardware is simple, robust and very easy to use. In our opinion, the IncuCyte has solved some classic drawbacks of time-lapse microscopy, since it has excellent optical stability, minimal sample disturbance, and consistent autofocus. The possibility of integrating different objectives (4x, 10x and 20x) and up to two fluorescence channels, in addition to the brightfield and phase contrast, allow it to perform most of the image-based cell assays with excellent resolution. The IncuCyte is designed for aggregate cellular analysis (it is not an image-based cytometer), but the introduction of the temporal component in the quantitative analysis is a parameter of inestimable importance. This powerful instrument can complement traditional cellular analytical approaches, both kinetic and end-point, and stands as the middle ground between low-resolution plate readers, time-lapse microscopes and high-content screening platforms. The use of IncuCyte in daily research activities has allowed us to understand complex mechanisms of action of drugs that would have been difficult to extrapolate with classical approaches. In addition to this, it allowed us to speed up the phenotypic drug or loss of function screening via RNAi or CRISPR, as well as to make the cloning of modified cell lines more efficient. The IncuCyte must not be missing in a cell biology laboratory."

  • Application Area:Analyze the ability of cell to proliferate well, with or without drugs causing DNA damage or breaks

"Our work on DNA damage leads us to test a lot of drugs on cell lines and patients cells. We are working preferentially on fibroblast cells (primary and SV40 transform cells). So we use the IncuCyte S3® Live-Cell Analysis System mostly with the proliferation application. For this kind of experiment, IncuCyte S3® Live-Cell Analysis System is very helpful and saves time. It takes 15 minutes to get graphs with the final result and plenty of pictures/movies that we can use for presentations, instead of around 2 or 3 hours of experiments and analysis before having the results. IncuCyte S3® Live-Cell Analysis System allows us to have more detail in our experiments, also and surprisingly we increase the data that we can use and we have got more information. It allows us also to do a drug screening much more important. With one plate we can tests 100 drugs easily, against 4/5 drugs before, and we can use at least 6 plates in the same time with IncuCyte. To our experiment IncuCyte S3® Live-Cell Analysis System is a powerful system which we can't do without anymore. Of course there is some trouble that we can't deal with for the moment, but we are sure that we can figure it out soon. The increasing information that we got with the IncuCyte, leads us to ask ourself how to manage the data, and more precisely how to analyse and do statistics on it. Engineer of Essen bioScience are very helpful about our question, but unfortunately whitout any regards it's difficult to help us. Nevertheless the results that we obtain already with the IncuCyte S3® Live-Cell Analysis System is stronger than before. The IncuCyte is very easy to use, the new software is much better than the old one and can be use easily even without anyone to help you. We are very satisfied of this equipment and have no regret to order it."

The best phase imaging system on the market
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Live cell imaging platform for labelled or unlabelled assays

"We purchased this instrument to augment our imaging capabilities and to enable us to perform live cell kinetic assays as well as to troubleshoot any issues with routine cell lines. The S3 has been brilliant in this regard, the software has been overhauled making everything much simpler and the camera is faster and has greater resolution than the ZOOM. If I have any criticism its that the fluorescence imaging is not as sensitive as other systems but this is more than made up for by the excellent phase images."

Outstanding performance
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Live-Cell Analysis System

"IncuCyte system allows real-time, automated monitoring of cell proliferation based on live cell time-lapse imaging. The system monitors proliferation by analyzing confluence and allows the separation of living and apoptotic cells by labeling reagents. Moreover, transfecting the nucleus with green or red fluorescent protein (GFP/RFP) tagged constructs allows the quantification of cell number and the monitoring of migration/invasion. Pros: *Automates data capture and cell assessment *Offers a simple but powerful workflow. *A major advantage is the nearly unlimited real-time analysis, but one must consider the high initial cost of the setup. *outstanding performance in sub-confluent cell cultures Cons: *High initial cost of the setup *Limited system flexibility, not upgradable *Only two fluorescent channels *Expensive consumables for more advance assays"

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:cell proliferation, cytotoxicity

"In general the Incucyte system is easy to use and gives great results like growth curves. We are also using it for spheroids and it works fine. Anyway, we are having some troubles with evaporation which leads to death of cells seeded in the edges of 96-well plates, which is very annoying. It offers some basic statistic tools and allows to make good looking figures for presentations, for any more detailed analysis it is best to copy the data to a spreadsheet program like excel."

Easy to use, convenient & rapid data analysis, easy access of images/data. Time-saver
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Proliferation, cell death (PI-uptake) of cancer cells

"I use the IncuCyte to measure the proliferation and the death (PI-uptake) of cancer cells after treatment over time. The IncuCyte system and software are very easy to use. After an intensive testing period and seminars on how to operate the equipment, I made the experience that handling the machine is easy and using the software is very intuitive. I recommend a "learning by doing" approach with first experiments, then all functions soon make sense. Organizing measurement schedules with colleagues works well due to the 24 hour display and the possibility to shift entire schedules until they fit. The analysis will need a few rounds of "trial and error" - inaccuracies in detecting cells or staining are a trade-off for the convenient rapid high-throughput experiment and analysis, but can impact the result. Since images can be exported and analysed by more labor-intensive methods (ImageJ), the output remains valuable, even if the semi-automatic analysis might not be able to gain the desired data. I am still evaluating how reliable the confluency analysis is and how to improve the counting of PI+ cells. It is difficult to compare PI+ cell counts with flow cytometry results, since the total amount of cells (per field of view) cannot be quantified (only % confluency) - maybe I need a green dye to mark my cells individually. The work load is very small and it is very convenient, how the software stores and analyses the data. The accessibility of each image and each graph/data is very good and cleverly solved. I cannot comment on "After Sales Care", since I didn't use it. I cannot comment on "Value for Money", since I didn't pay for it, but with a 150k € price tag the IncuCyte has to deliver in the next few years and be compared with a flow cytometer or an epi-fluorescence microscope. I am convinced that we will get value for the money, if the IncuCyte system is used regularly in the next few years."

"The machine is very easy to use. And as we expected, it runs certain quantitative protocols efficiently, saved us a lot of time. I am satisfied with the performance of the machine. However, I was disappointed in the beginning. Because we received the new machine with problems of 4x objective. We had to send back the machine and the company promised to send us another new one with tested functions before it's delivered. Then we received a new one that had problem with the fluorescence module. We had to wait for the engineer sent a new part to replace the fluorescence module of the machine. The whole process was unpleasant since it wasted us quite a lot of time. I really want to ask did you test your machine before sending it out? It's intolerant that such problem happened twice."

  • Application Area:3D cell culture

"Incucyte S3 is a very easy to use piece of an equipment with very user-friendly software. The new software is actually much better than the old one, much more intuitive. I like Incucyte for its extensive recording and high throughput capabilities. I was trying to adopt the spheroid assay to be used with higher concentration of Matrigel than recommended 2.5% which I found rather difficult with lower reproducibility than expected. For some reason, just opening the Incucyte would cause it to go out of focus on my spheroids so my images would have some pictures in focus and some not. Also in dense Matrigel spheroids not always settle at the very bottom of the plate and therefore the Incucyte has a hard time focusing on these ones. Hardly a machine fault but still annoying for my purposes. It's still nice to be able to use different objectives for different plates and be able to schedule different acquisition times for different vessels. Grate improvement over the previous versions!"

  • Application Area:Phenotypic Screening

"Good Points The ease of use of the machine, on the fly analysis and monitoring and the fabulous quality of the phase-contrast images make the Incucyte a valuable addition to our lab. Bad Points The limitations introduced by the GFP/RFP only restriction prevent us from using the machine for the majority of our assays without reengineering many of our cell lines. Incucyte / Essen branded reagents are very expensive."

Great idea - but has reliability issues and underpowered image analysis software.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Live cell fluorescent imaging

"The Incucyte Zoom is an outstanding idea - allowing us to get kinetic information about cellular viability, localization and interaction in a medium throughput format. When it worked, it worked fairly well. The image analysis software was adequate. The customer service was very helpful at bringing us up to speed with how to use the software, but it wasn't all that powerful, and there were a few things that we thought would be straightforward that just weren't possible. The images frequently drifted out of focus - so about half of our images were not useable - resulting in a tedious process of deleting every other photo from a movie. We also lost 2-3 hard drives over the past 18 months - resulting in a $4k service call to replace them. I would have much rather just had the option of uploading images and movies to a server or the cloud, than having a bank of apparently unreliable hard drives. I liked the idea, and really wanted to love the instrument, but in the end I'm not sure I'll buy another in my new lab."

The Zoom is a cellular assay development scientist's dream come true...
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Visualize & assay iPSC-derived human cells

"Some of my favorite features:
1. The ability to schedule the imaging of up to 6 plates at a time (any format size up to 384-well + large library of compatible plate types).
2. Another big plus is the "scan-on-demand" feature that enables additional plates to be imaged during unscheduled time.
3. Love that I can remote into the controller to adjust schedules, view plates, and perform analysis jobs anywhere I can go with my laptop (internet connection required) - it would be even nicer if there was a phone app...
4. The HD phase images are hard to beat and enable a number of very useful label-free analyses.
5. Inclusion of 2-color (green & red) fluorescence modes is a big improvement over the previous FLR version.
Opportunities for improvement: (1) While the software interface definitely has the essentials and is relatively intuitive to learn and use, it could be vastly improved and modernized to enhance the user experience. (2) The image analysis tools are rather limited compared to features provided by high content imagers, which certainly helps to keep things simple, but can also be unsatisfying in many instances since it limits the end-user’s ability to do more advanced assays and analysis. (3) Only a single objective (4x, 10x, or 20x options) can use with the instrument at a time, which quickly becomes problematic with multiple users wanting to scan at different magnitudes. Overall, the Zoom is a great concept that quickly becomes a can't-live-without-it lab instrument.

Varied applications, reproducible results and great customer support!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Chemotaxis and Migration assays, proliferation assays

"We have achieved great results with the proliferation, migration and chemotaxis assays. Most applications require an initial set up and then the IncuCyte Zoom takes care of the rest. The wound maker is a big advantage for consistent and clean wounds in our adherent cells. The availability of multiple dish formats (96-well, 24 well, 6 well) also works out well when performing apoptosis assays and proliferation assays. The one disadvantage is the difficulty in changing objectives from 10x (mostly preferred) to 4x (needed for whole well imaging). The onsite and offsite technical support provided by Sales Manager Michael Conley and Daniel Passmore is remarkable. The instrument and scanning software is easy to use. Remote access to the software allows multiple users to access data. However, the analysis part is not intuitive and requires multiple training sessions. There is a need to make this more user friendly. What the software lacks in ease of use is compensated by the many times Michael has stopped by to help us set up an experiment and analyse data. We are literally fighting to sign up for the instrument. Overall, very happy with the instrument and its varied applications to cancer-related studies. "

Very useful instrument for cell growth and cytotoxicity studies but has some limitation compared to other high content imaging systems
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Cytotoxicity and cell growth studies

"The system allows for the real time assessment of cell growth and cytotoxicity via on or more readouts (bright field, red and green fluorescence). The system is easy to set up and operate. The analysis of data produced by this system is a bit challenging and has a steep learning curve to fully utilize the full potential of analysis capabilities. This is a challenge for most mid to high content imaging systems due to the large amount of data generated. One significant limitation of the software is to identify multiple types of objects and produce multiple "masks" which would allow counting objects associated with other objects (e.g. # stained lysosomes associated with cell nuclei). This type of analysis is available on systems such as Cellomics VTI and GE in Cell. This system also lacks light source and filters to detect blue fluorescence dyes such as DAPI and Hoescht. "

(A.N.) is not a microscopist - their areas of expertise do not overlap with single cell assays, so they are not convinced of need -- and equally or more important, money is now tight. "

Great equipment with minor limitations
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Analyzing cellular phenotypes

"Initiation of experiments is an easy job with the equipment but the end analyses still require much effort on optimization. The quality of the images taken is decent but the capability to image sub-cellular components at higher magnification is lacking. One equipment takes over an entire incubator seems to be not so cost-effective. After all, it is a great tool for phenotypic study."

Great machine but try before you buy
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Cell migration/angiogenesis

"Some aspects of the Incucyte are great, for example can be used for wide range of imaging protocols, limited by your imagination and the lack of resolution at higher magnification. We purchased it primarily for its angiogenesis assay functionality, unfortunately this hasn't really worked out for us as the GFP-labelled HUVECS Essen supplies do not respond well to further transfection with siRNA or viruses and this severely limits their application in our work. It should also be noted that consumables, such as the GFP-HUVECS and the scratch assay plates are relatively expensive, in addition it is also very costly to add extra functionality using Essen software modules. On a more positive note we have used the incucyte extensively and successfully for a range of different assays including migration and proliferation and it has made our research more productive. In addition the after sales care has been fantastic and can't be faulted. "

Don't want to live without the instrument. It occupies a unique niche to do live-cell experiments in multiple plates for around $100k. Other instruments with similar live-cell capability (in general high content microscopes) are more than 5x as expensive. If the higher resolution is not needed, than it far preferable to have a cheaper, more specialized instrument.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Proliferation and death after drug treatment.

"The IncuCyte occupies a unique niche to follow cellular phenotypes over time. I believe that in particular the 4x whole-well scanning of 384 well plates gives the best range of throughput and accuracy. As long as the phenotypes are readily observable at this resolution, then it's a great instrument. My main points of complaint are: 1) Fix the 50% cool down time. It's unbelievable that this can't be done away with using a simple fix. 2) Better export of raw images and analyzed data (e.g. for multiple plates and multiple features at once). 3) Better image analysis (make masks in one channel and determine intensity in another). 4) More plate definitions for whole-well scanning. 5) Higher speed. 6) Third wavelength."

Finally, the experiment died after only 2 images taken due to a camera failure. It would be okay if this was the first such failure, but we had hard drive malfunctions before, motherboard blowout and other issues which would take the instrument off-line for weeks."

We've also used it for cell line characterization (doubling times, ideal seeding density determination, etc.) We actually end up finding new uses for it all the time. Having cell images and movies really allow you to convey your message more clearly. Support staff is excellent and receptive.

Beside that we are testing 3D cultures and co-culture systems. Finally I like to add that the performance of the instrument is very reliable, the handling is indeed straight forward and I like the software as more as we work with the machine.

  • Application Area:Cell growth monitoring

"The device performs well at cell viability assays and monitoring expansion. The data presentation (images and output graphs) were informative although some more flexibility in graphing would have been ideal. Imaging a whole well in a 96-well plate was desired but could not be very effectively achieved. Imaging of a well in a 384-well plate was effective. The software wasn't 100% intuitive to start but after some adjusting it was good to work with."

  • Application Area:Optimization of B-cell culture conditions

"The product was effective at monitoring the culture growth of our B-cells. The software was difficult to use but the masking features were great. Unfortunately, we would want to monitor dozens of plates worth of cultures, which would require too many incucytes and additional incubators. "

  • Application Area:neuro-sphere growth

"The consistency of the replicates was impressive and moving from few replicates to six 96 wells plates is a game changer. The system can still improve in flexibility and it tends to be "closed"; it does most of what it says, but does not really allow you to play around. "

  • Application Area:Cell Viability and Apoptosis assays

"The Incucyte Zoom is a fantastic instrument. It is invaluable to be able to easily monitor the effect of compounds or shRNAs on cell growth over time. Having the two fluorescent channels is also a great tool for co-cultures and is very useful for looking at the effect of CD8 T cell killing on both proliferation and apoptosis in the same well."

  • Application Area:Cell Toxicity Testing

"The IncuCyte ZOOM (Essen Bioscience) can be used for many applications, but in combination with CellTox-Green (Promega) one can follow cell toxicity over time. The initial setup takes some time, since the ZOOM needs a reference image library, but after this 'teaching', it's basically 'plug and play' and very friendly in use. If one would run into trouble, the support team is very friendly too! Both the ZOOM and CellTox-Green do cost a fair bit, but the vast amount of data generated is worth it. "

The IncuCyte® S3 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. Whether simply assaying cell health or more complex processes like migration, invasion, or immune cell killing, see what your cells are doing and when they do it. The IncuCyte S3 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.

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 system offers the advantage of performing live-cell analysis without ever having to displace cells or disrupt their surroundings. The system automatically and continually collects and analyzes images throughout the course of an experiment while cells remain unperturbed in a physiologically relevant environment. Furthermore, the IncuCyte S3 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 2,000 peer-reviewed publications in journals such as Nature, Chemical Society Reviews, Nature Medicine, and Nature Genetics, among many others. The S3 offers a completely reimagined user interface, enabling even first-time users to set-up an experiment and begin acquiring images within minutes. Image viewing, analysis and graphing is similarly streamlined – images from a 96-well experiment can be viewed simultaneously, then converted into movies, metrics, and corresponding publication- and presentation-ready graphs with just a few clicks. In addition to improving productivity for the individual user, the IncuCyte S3 empowers an entire research team. Multiple users can run multiple applications on the IncuCyte in parallel, reducing time spent waiting for an instrument to be available.

In addition, data is accessible remotely to any user via unlimited, free networked licenses. The IncuCyte and its unique features provide a powerful platform that enables researchers to devise new experiments not previously thought possible. In addition to the IncuCyte® platform, IncuCyte® proprietary reagents and analysis software are also available which enable researchers to perform real-time, quantitative live cell analysis and evaluate a wide variety of cellular processes over time.

Never miss powerful insights again, with the IncuCyte S3 live-cell analysis system, reagents, and consumables.
