Single cell & cell culture analysis
Stem cells and primary cells are sensitive to experiment induced stresses such as phototoxicity or bleaching caused by fluorescence microscopy which is the current method of choice for cell imaging. This type of stress leads to significant limitations for live cell imaging possibilities. The 3D Cell Explorer microscope would help avoid these perturbations and improve fundamental research on sensitive cells as the samples need no preparation, which allows for a fast, non-invasive and unbiased live cell observation. In addition, the 3D Cell Explorer laser uses 100 times less energy than the least energetic laser in the current fluorescent imaging approaches, which makes long-term imaging (up to weeks) possible.
