The Incucyte® SX1 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® SX1 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.
Incucyte® technology is featured in over 3,000 peer-reviewed publications in journals such as Nature, Chemical Society Reviews, Nature Medicine, and Nature Genetics, among many others. The SX1 enables 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. Data is accessible remotely to a user via unlimited, free networked licenses. 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.
