zenCELL owl das Mikroskop für live cell imaging

The zenCELL owl is a 24-channel microscope for fast and automated live cell microscopy. Its compact design and stability, even above room temperature, make it ideal for the use as a incubator microscope. The modular design allows flexible configurations to guarantee a suitable and safe analysis of biological samples. The small footprint in the incubator leaves enough space for further cell cultures or zenCELL owl systems.

In the Software integrated image processing algorithms support continuous long term cell culture monitoring and provide fast and accurate information about the current state of the sample to be observed. The real-time data analysis provides information on the current cell count and the degree of coverage of the substrate surface of the image section with cells. The total cell count as well as the number of cells attached to the substrate and the number of cells detached from the substrate are evaluated. Start your project and capture the images of your cell culture at your individual frequency, create a time-lapse video or export a data set for your scientific work.

Measurement on L929 fibroblast cell line

Growth behaviour of an L929 fibroblast cell culture
Observation of the L929 cell line with the zenCELL owl. Over the course of 65 hours, numerous division processes lead to the formation of a confluent cell monolayer. Typically, the fibroblast cells detach from the substrate surface for the cell division process, carry out cell division and the resulting daughter cells adhere to the substrate again. The ability of L929 cells to migrate on the substrate can be seen sporadically.
