Extended Live Cell Imaging

Image your live cells as long as you need. Limit cell damages caused by fluorescent markers, bleaching and phototoxicity.

Long-term imaging (11 hrs) of mouse pre-adipocytes. Mitochondria were labeled with mitTracker. A holotomographic image was taken every 15 seconds and a fluorescence image every 5 minutes.

Live FUCCI mESC imaged for over 48 hours

The video shows live FUCCI mESC that were imaged for over 48 hours with Nanolive’s 3D Cell Explorer-fluo. A holotomographic image was taken every 14 seconds while a double channel (green and red) epifluorescence image was only taken every 30 holotomographic frames (7:30 minutes). The difference in acquisition rate was performed to reduce fluorescence related phototoxicity. 

*Please note that the latest fluorescence image is displayed over the following 30 holotomographic images until a new one is acquired, for visualization purpose. The mismatch between the two signals is due to this image processing choice.
