Blue, green, & red fluorescence and walk-away automation
The powerful, new Lumascope 720 (LS720) adds walk-away automation to the many features and high performance of the flagship 3-color LS620. Exquisite XY motion control, motorized focus that allows autofocus and z-stacks, and easy-to-configure software combine to facilitate your microscopy experiments and high content screens. Place the LS720 in your incubator and you have a live cell imaging system at a fraction of the cost of conventional HCS systems. Whether imaging multiple fields in your flasks or 1536 wells of cells with three fluorophores in a 48 hour time-lapse, the 720 offers a whole new world of automated microscopy!
Like the LS620, it utilizes a Semrock Brightline® Pinkel filter set optimised for 405nm, 488nm, and 594nm LED light sources. The five-filter set is comprised of three exciting filters, one triple-band emitting filter, and one beam-splitting filter. The 720 also contains the same CMOS sensor as the LS620 that is larger than the sensor used in Lumascopes 500 and 400.
