VivaView® FL Incubator Fluorescence Microscope

The VivaView FL provides a fully integrated and motorized inverted microscope to allow high quality, long-term time-lapse imaging in a constant and optimized environment. Multiple locations in up to 8 samples can be imaged simultaneously with fluorescence or Differential Interference Contrast. Simple, intuitive computer operation removes all the difficulty previously associated with configuring a live cell imaging system. The VivaView FL is the next generation in live-cell imaging providing researchers the ability to image cells for significant longer than has previously been possible with absolute control of the surrounding environment.

Screening drugs to block aggregation of Huntingtin protein

Apoptosis: An award-winning video

Instrument: VivaView FL (LCV-110)

Subject: This video is a series of live, time-lapse images of human mesenchymal stem cells grown on a collagen-I coated dish. The cells are treated with a high level of a PI3-Kinase inhibitor which induces apoptosis (or programmed cell death). This video won an award at the 2010 American Society for Cell Biology Cell Dance competition.
