Inspect stem cells without removing them from the incubator. Identify colonies with high quality HD-phase imaging, all the way to the vessel edge
Monitor and calculate transduction and reprogramming efficiencies using fluorescent reporters and surface marker expression probes
From your desk, use digital marking tool to locate and follow colonies over time
Manual inspection of wells using a stereomicroscope is laborious and time consuming. The IncuCyte® Live-Cell Analysis System allows for examination of wells via aquired images, and promotes collaboration with multiple user access
Upper left: Digitally highlight multiple areas of interest. Upper right: The IncuCyte system physically marks the vessel using the Plate Marking Tool. Lower left: Mark an emerging colony. Lower right: Digitally select the colony for physical marking.
IncuCyte HD-phase time-lapse images tracking colony evolution. Move back and forth in time to watch the history and evolution of emerging colonies.
Confirming pluripotency using cell surface markers. iPSCs derived from human adult dermal fibroblasts and grown on mouse embryonic fibroblast feeder cells. Double label confirmation of pluripotency. SSEA4 primary antibody paired + Alexa Fluor® 488 secondary antibody combined with OCT4 primary antibody + Alexa Fluor® 594 secondary antibody. Upper left: Image is the whole well overview. Upper right: Magnified image of two highlighted colonies from this well expressing both markers of pluripotency.
