Incucyte® S3 Live-Cell Analysis System


See what your cells are doing and when they do it with the Incucyte® S3 Live-Cell Analysis System

Derive deeper and more physiologically relevant information about your cells – plus real-time kinetic data. The Incucyte automatically acquires and analyzes images around the clock, providing an information-rich analysis that is easy to achieve.

Change can happen in an instant.  Whether simply assaying cell health or more complex processes like migration, invasion, or immune cell killing, see what happened and when—without ever removing your cells from the incubator.

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