Must have for heavy cell culture labs/ in vitro data.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Proliferation rates/size disparity/drug toxicity analysis

"Our department has been raving about the Incucyte, it is so simple to use and puts your mind at ease that when you put your cells in you can get easy reliable data. It really is self explanatory to use and almost all of our labs have used it now and had great responses."

Powerful instrument. Bottleneck in analysis. Not high-throuput.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Immune cell killing

"Very effective but bottlenecks analysis. Difficult to analyze across groups. Graphing software needs to be better. Need better informatics tools and more templates to utilize from the website and in the graphing tool. We also have a very tough time going back and forth between plates and also back and forth between the Incucyte and more conventional killing assays such as chromium and ldh. More small molecule examples would be great. Moe expertise using non-adherent cell types too."

Good product, could improve resolution.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Proliferation, cytotoxicity, migration, 3D culture

"The product is very easy to use and gives reproducible results. Image resolution is not great, so smaller structures (like vesicles) can not be studied. We adapt to the available functions, but more resolution would increase the number of applications."

Raised rating for "After sales service" to 5 stars from my former review (19Mar2020)
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cancer drug effects

"Add on for my review from 19 March 2020. I have to revise my rating for the category "After sales service". At the time of writing this former review, we did not get any response after having received a service offer for our defective controller. However, this has now changed completely. The defective controller was picked up, shipped to UK and returned within 8 working days. This was mainly triggered by our local Sartorius service people. They did a great job. The machine runs now properly again. The best: This service was not charged - again, due to the engagement of these service people. This, and the profound help by the application scientist, made me readjusting the rating for the "After sales care"."

Nice migration analysis module.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analysis of cell migration (scratch assay)

"I used IncuCyte to perform scratch migration assays and it really made my life easier compared to manually counting cells or calculating migrated area. The quality of the photos is absolutely great (at least for brightfield). It would be nice if the software could calculate the number of individual cells (counting) alongside the migrated area. The photos are mostly reproducible (from time to time I faced small issues, but overall quite consistent)."

Great, if it's running properly - hardware seems to fade over time in performance.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Cancer drug effects

"The strength of the IncuCyte is definitely the software package included. E.g. operating the machine and data processing are easy, even when done by people who only have a superficial knowledge of microscopy. The hardware could be improved, primarily in terms of quality, reliability and flexibility. Flexibility: e.g. compatibility with higher resolution objectives. Quality: e.g. this drawer is simply bad for a €150k device. Reliability: e.g. our machine broke down twice within two years since purchase. First time, after 1.5 years the scans where out of focus - service fixed it (they did a great job). Second time, after 2.2 years the hard disk of the steering unit cracked. Asked for service and got an offer, which we accepted more than one month ago - nothing has happened since that time, no answer from Sartorius how to proceed - except for one sales representative, who really seems to take care of the customers in his region. The machine is still not serviced, not even in the line to be serviced. The service offer has expired during this time and we urgently need the raw data stored on the steering unit for publication. Reproducibility: great and consistent with the ease of handling."

I highly recommend this product for any lab working with cell models.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Detect immunofluorescent markers in cells

"The product was quite easy to set up - you simply put it in the incubator and virtually everything can be controlled wirelessly from the comfort of your laptop. The user interface is also quite straightforward compared to other scientific instruments, and it offers great flexibility in plate/dish type. The ability to consistently image cells at regular intervals under both bright field conditions and to detect red/green fluorescent markers proved invaluable for my lab's research and allowed us to collect quality results in half the time that it would have taken otherwise (and with much greater precision). Additionally, the technicians at Sartorius were extremely accommodating of our needs and addressed all of our issues."

Perfect for providing new phenotyping profiling services!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze of the bioactivity of small chemical molecules (synthetic or marine natural products)

"I am the scientific manager of a screening facility (KISSf for kinase inhibitor screening facility). It is a structure open to all chemists in France and abroad to test the effects of their drugs on our selection of kinases involved in human pathologies. Some of these lead compounds are currently in preclinical study (acute kidney injuries, acute hepatitis, protection against cell death in neurodegenerative diseases) and clinical trial (cystic fibrosis). At our screening facility, we use the IncuCyte S3 reader to automatically monitor cells in real time. In addition, we have developed 3D culture models in order to reproduce the tumor microenvironment. 3D-spheroid assays are now available on our screening facility. The IncuCyte S3 was crucial for us to establish new middle-throughput assays and provide new “phenotypic profiling services” that we can include in one package of assays for our customers. I give excellent marks (from 4 to 5) because this equipment is exactly what we needed!"

Great improvement in laboratory life.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cellular assays: proliferation, migration, toxicity, spheroids analysis

"The instrument is quite easy to use once you learn how to manage the software. It delivers great reproducible results. It speeds up many time-consuming biological assays. In particular, we really appreciated it for proliferation (e.g. IC50 calculation of drugs) and migration assays, but also spheroids analysis and immune cell-mediated killing assays."

Good, reproducible results but after sales care could be better.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Cell proliferation

"It's easy to use and delivers reproducible results. However some images within one well are often out of focus and always have to be removed manually. After we had 2 serious problems (broken drawer + out of focus) it took really long to get it fixed and and to get/stay in touch with our contact person."

Great instrument! I am really happy with it!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Phagocytosis assay with dead cells (phrodo); Single clone identification after CRISPR/Cas9 manipulat

"It is possible to acquire high quality data, which is highly reproducible. The analysis is very easy and handy. However, the instrument software sometimes causes problems: the camera cannot be found, therefore no pictures are taken, and this happens during the night so no reaction is possible... The technical service is really good and efficient, always very friendly and comes very fast after being contacted. Thanks for that!"

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Internalization

"It’s easy to use and analysis is easy. I think the reagents are over priced. Results have not always been reproducible and some time points have issues in imaging. We can eliminate those during analysis, but it would be nice if it didn’t happen in the first place. Customer service is excellent."

Great instrument for semi-high throughput cell biology.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell prolifiration, cell death assays

"Very easy to use instrument, once the dyes and the conditions are calibrated the results are very reproducible and informative, introducing theme components in many drug sensitivity assays of cancer cells. Some of the dyes are a bit expensive and usually the green works better than the red. But overall very good."

Essential instrument for tumor biology research
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Growth and invasion analysis of tumor cells

"This product has been highly effective for measuring high-throughput growth curves of tumor cells. We have extensively utilized it for testing affects of compounds as well as gene expression on tumor growth and invasion. Additionally, it had been essential in testing spheroid formation and growth. The ease of use and amount of data generated from the product are very valuable considering the initial input cost for our department."

Great instrument and useful software for many applications.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Immuno-oncology

"The product is well-suited depending on the application. T cell counts are accurate and reproducible. Phrodo-based products can give false positive in dying cells. The system is great and has a huge potential if single-mode analysis is further developed. Human-IgG1 products are not yet available and will be very helpful for therapeutics testing. Price is good for the quality, regarding the hardware and software. However, consumables are expensive and in most cases needed for the experiment (label-free analysis will be a nice implementation)."

Powerful results, but difficult for new users
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Immune cell killing

"The Live-Cell Analysis Sytem has been very useful for monitoring immune cell killing, cell proliferation, and drug treatment on target cells. Being able to generate killing profiles has helped speed up research and have better understanding of our in vitro cultures and kinetics. The interface of the IncuCyte isn't intuitive at times. Icons can be confusing. Analysis templates can be difficult to establish for new users and take time to learn. Once the software and settings are mastered, the instrument is very powerful and results in meaningful data."

Great instrument, high-quality images for all plate types. Analysis needs practice.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Monitor adherent tagged cells (kill curves, characterization)

"The IncuCyte facilitates characterization of our tagged cell lines by being able to monitor cells in high-quality over several days. We still need to get familiar with the analysis software to be able to get fully benefit from the system. We are using 8-well Ibidi slides quite often, but it is not possible to add a layout for them. This only works for other formats."

"Results have been reproducible, and the images are high quality. Like any instrument, it takes some time to optimize a protocol for each specific assay and cell type, but once optimized, it works reliably. The convenience of scheduling different time-points for automated imaging frees up time for other experiments, and reduces experiment burden on weekends. The software is intuitive, but has a bug that occasionally causes it to become unresponsive when setting up a complex experiment. A quick restart of the software resolves the issue. Due to the volume and high quality of images, the memory will run out faster than expected with frequent use, but the process for exporting the data from the IncuCyte to make more room is easy and painless. Overall, a fantastic instrument with highly customizable workflow."

Love this machine.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cancer immunotherapy

"After having some trouble with Incucyte in my lab, Sartorius tried really hard to find a way to solve our problem. With their support, we now have fully functional machine, and it’s data quality is amazing. I believe the most important point in buying a machine is how much the provider cares, even after warranty period. Malfunctioning is inevitable. It can happen to any well-made system, but the difference is how the manufacturer responds. Right after notifying them of our issue, Sartorius tried to contact me as soon as possible. They listened to my description, tried to give the most reasonable solution, and then visited to our lab and diagnosed the problem. During the process, I was fully informed and they explained what was happening. Within just a week, our matter was solved and it is now fully functional again. I’d like to say thank you to Sartorius and I strongly recommend this machine, not just because of it’s data quality, but also because of the passionate after-sales service."

Can't imagine life without an IncuCyte in our lab
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze proliferation, apoptosis etc.

"We use the Incucyte for many applications, e.g. to monitor proliferation and apoptosis after treatment with drugs, to determine IC50 values, to check for fluorescent protein expression, etc. It saves a lot of time and produces nice, publication-ready results (movies, images, growth curves). The software allows for the most common analyses (confluence, cell count) and is easy to use. The only downside is that it requires quite a lot of maintenance and sometimes we had to wait for weeks for an appointment with a technician."

I won't run a cell death/proliferation experiment without this device anymore.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell death experiments

"For analyzing cell death or cell proliferation over time, there is no better device on the market, as far as I can tell. Screening cell death/proliferation conditions in six plates at the same time with a live cell microscope that is so extremely easy to use makes experiments feel like playing a game. Even analyzing the data afterwards (or from home on the sofa) is so easy that it can hardly be called "work". And although the "user experience" is more similar to playing a game, than performing laborious cell culture experiments, the readout in the end is extremely good and consistent. There is no comparison to quantifying cell death using normal live-cell microscopy with an automated stage or even worse: endpoint measurements. The only thing missing is a far red channel and maybe space for even more plates and an even higher speed (unrealistic but why not?). 6 plates at once with ~12 min scan time per full plate is not bad though."

No other instrument is able to fulfil all the applications
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Immuno-Oncology

"I use the Incucyte S3 to follow the killing of cells by natural killers. It is really easy to follow the killing of fluorescent cells. Now, I even do experiments in a 384-plate format. I also follow the growth of cells, comparing transfected to parental cells in order to evaluate the impact of target expressions in different culture conditions and through time. Thanks to the IncuCyte, we discovered that in some conditions, transfected cells are growing more slowly than parental cells, but after a confluence of more than 50%, they grow faster than the parental cells and they are even able to reach a 100% of confluence (a percentage not reached in parental conditions). It would have been difficult to see without the help of the IncuCyte. Learning how to use the IncuCyte is easy - any trainee learns to use the software within few hours. We would like to implement spheroid studies in our lab. I already know that the IncuCyte will be the adequate device to measure the impact of the treatments on the spheroids. We will easily follow the size of the spheroid through time in usual culture conditions of temperature and CO2. We will also be able to use fluorescent cells to better understand what is going on into spheroids. The IncuCyte is a complete instrument, which allows a very large panel of applications in a simple manner."

Great for bright-field neurite analysis - be careful of edge effects.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Neurite analysis

"We use this instrument mostly for neurite quantification in bright-field and have found the results to be comparable to other high-content imaging systems that require fluorescent staining. This allows us to use the same culture for short-term neurite analysis as well as long-term analysis, without having to fix the plate to achieve the short-term staining. This microscope has also been instrumental in identifying time windows of phenotypes in different treatment conditions. The one downside that we've seen for neuro-related analysis is that there is a severe edge effect when a 96-well plate is imaged for more than a day or two (we never have cells in the outer wells, the edge effect extends 2-3 wells in from all sides). We have determined this is due to our incubator being on the small-side because there are issues with evaporation from the heat generated by the machine, even with extra water bins placed in the incubator."

I use the IncuCyte regularly have been very pleased with the results I got so far.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Immune cell mediated killing

"Sample preparation and instrument set up are fairly straightforward, especially if you follow the manufacturer's instructions and already have target cells that express a red or a green fluorescent protein. Data analysis is more complex because it requires selecting representative images to train the software, and also involves creating custom filters to minimize background fluorescence. That said, as long as you apply the same type of analysis to your controls and your experimental samples, you should be able to reduce bias that comes with defining an analysis yourself."

"The Incucyte has been a great addition to our lab. It's allowing us to design experiments we hadn't considered before. I especially like how it comes with a networked computer that is very fast, allowing us to analyse results from our own slower computers really quickly. It's a very intuitive system to figure out and we've even trained a high school student to operate it. Some of the consumables are a bit expensive, but most are available from other vendors. Overall, we're very happy with the machine and it's so heavily used here we're working on getting another."

"We have the IncuCyte Zoom software and it works very well for monocultures and spheroids. Sometimes we struggle with the analysis of 3D spheroid cultures as it is difficult to mask using the current software (not the latest IncuCyte machine). However, we still find it very useful for the multiple assays we run in the lab.

The IncuCyte Zoom has become an invaluable tool in our lab.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Cell proliferation, migration and tumour-immune cell interactions

"Since the appliance of the IncuCyte in our lab we have been able to perform longitudinal studies on our tumour cell cultures and their interactions with various sorts of immune cells. All this in a "track-and-trace" fashion. We are able to track the behaviour of individual cells, as well as collect data on large pools. With multiple lasers installed and the possibilities of using many different plate formats, there are few limitations to possible combinations. Being able to determine the use of the camera in the way that is desirable for a particular experiment also leads to individual optimisation so that the IncuCyte can be used by many researchers throughout the entire research institute, tackling many different research topics and questions. Overall, the versatility of the instrument is great, and if needed can be expanded (eg. extra lasers). The downsides are rather minimal, but need to be mentioned. First of all, there is a limited space inside, so only 6 plates can be tracked at a time during an experiment; sometimes one would wish this to be more. The user-interface is alright, but could be a bit more user-friendly. A good training course is given once a machine will be installed on-site, which is very helpful, but I feel that it would be quite hard to learn yourself, without help from an experienced user. Last, as always, the equipment and maintenance of an IncuCyte is a pricey business. Also the reagents provided by the company are not cheap. Luckily there is very good tech support in case of need - it normally doesn't take long to get one of their experts where you need them."

Strongly recommended for fluorescence-based analysis of dynamic biological processes.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Virology, fluorescence reporter assays, immunology

"Very easy to use and reliable. Introductions for new lab members do not take more than 30 min. Experimental setups are easy and straight-forward. Running multiple (up to 6) different experiments at the same time by different researchers is realistically possible. We use it a lot for plaque formation - even with very slow viruses. Imaging runs can be 10 days or more to assess plaque growth velocity or abortive infection at very low MOI. Minor criticism: There are some non-solvable hot pixel issues at very high contrast with our IncuCyte. High background in green channel with some cell media (probably riboflavin-associated) - can be erased with e.g. ImageJ background subtraction. I would love to have a blue fluorescence channel in addition - that would make the perfect machine."

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."

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."

Every lab needs one.
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."

Great instrument and I cannot think of working without it for my assays
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."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze cell proliferation, signal pathway response and gene edit efficient with reporter cell line

"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."

"The incucyte is very easy to use. Any trainee can use it after some user's explanations. With this device, we are able to follow the growth of any cells and to have a morphologic view of the cells during time while leaving cells in their usual environment. The software of image analysis included in this device allows to measure a lot of parameters such as the confluence of the culture or the neurites outgrowth. Many other possibilities exist with this device and the new version of the Incucyte ( Incucyte S 3 ) is even more performant."

Our best Cell QC and monitoring system....which makes scientists happy !
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cell Quality Control and Monitoring

"The new IncuCyte® S3 is really user friendly and becomes a really needed device for our cell QC and monitoring. It allows many formats of cell vessels and the program is very intuitive! There are still a lot of applications we would like to test... like immune cell functions and differentiation assays, so, I think next year will be an exciting new year with lots of new discoveries on Incucyte S3. Thanks for this nice and helpful device!!! Congratulations for being part of Sartorius Company...our favorite cell automation developer! "

Perfect for automated measurement of growth curves.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Measure cell proliferation

"The Incucyte is very easy to use and the software is intuitive. I can quickly set up an experiment to track cell proliferation and walk away while it collects data. It is very customizable and flexible - able to accommodate many different types of plates, and different imaging frequencies, and green and red channels in addition to phase images."

We obtained powerful results, more sensitive one and it is very save timing.
Rating: 4.7

  • 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."

Makes research so much easier!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Tissue culture and scratch wound assays

"Once we were properly trained, this machine was amazing. It allowed me to provide video data for my lab that is so much more interesting than just a graph! It is so helpful to be able to run a bunch of assays on one plate as well. Really recommend!!!"

Excellent technology and worth the money.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Assess cell growth and function in controlled environment

"We have specifically put our S3 in a controlled environmental chamber. In doing so, we are able to study cell growth and function in tightly controlled conditions without disturbing the cells. This has not been possible prior to the Incucyte technology, and we are very happy with our purchase."

Great tool for good research
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Proliferation, cell death, immune response

"Straight forward process, easy to use, powerful to validate multiple conditions. Very helpful for research, although an improvement of the optics switches and contrast of phase mask could improve the process."

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."

Really Great.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Neurites outgrowth

"The Incucyte is an easy useful instrument. I couldn't do without it any more. The analysis module is really wonderful and very powerful ! The only way to improve it would be to add the blue light to easily take pictures of fixed cells."

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"

Must have
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Functional Assays

"After care hasn´t been used so far. The product itself is very easy to use. The software is very intuitive, in the beginning I was skeptical when the technicians from Essen told me this. When having using it myself I have to say, they were right 100%. The results are nice and everything is analyzed by the machine itself and the power of this machine is the fact that you can let the experiment run as long as you want."
