Uniquely, the acumen hci imager performs whole well scanning as standard. This ensures the highest quality, robust data, eliminating interplate variability and overcoming uneven cell distribution. This feature also permits the imaging of larger organisms or colonies without time-consuming image-stitching, while fewer cells need to be plated per well, saving valuable supplies of limited culture. The acumen hci also lends itself to 3D cell culture analysis thanks to its large depth of focus.
By exporting OME-compliant, open-source TIFF files, acumen hci offers users maximum flexibility. Whole well images can be easily transferred to external, third party analysis software for secondary analysis as required, and - because you can use your existing in-house imaging expertise - acumen fits easily into your workflow.
acumen hci uses TTP Labtech’s patented 'on-the-fly' analysis which ensures throughput at 8 minutes per plate, including TIFF file generation, and irrespective of plate format and the number of colours detected. With two modes of operation, it is a versatile imager for screening applications, regardless of the assay complexity and user experience.
With solid state lasers for enhanced illumination, the acumen hci can use up to 3, user-defined lasers (range 405 nm to 640 nm), including the new 561 nm laser. This allows the acumen hci to detect a comprehensive range of fluorescent probes for a diverse range of cell-based imaging applications, including hard-to-automate assays.
With TTP Labtech's acumen hci, your data is imaged and ready in only 8 minutes - no matter whether you're using whole well analysis, 1, 2 or 3 colours, or 96-, 384- or 1536-well plates. No fuss.
