Automated confocal microscope

High-content, high-throughput imaging at the DRSC/TRiP-FGR is supported by a GE IN Cell Analyzer 6000 Cell Imaging System with automation. Our IN Cell has 4x, 10x, 20x, and 60x lenses, and supports multi-color confocal or non-confocal fluorescence imaging as well as brightfield imaging. Please use the order/signup system or get in touch with the Director to learn about using this instrument for low- or high-throughput screens and other imaging projects.

In addition to supporting confocal imaging of cells in 96-and 384-well plates, the IN Cell 6000 also supports imaging of standard microscope slides, 6-well dishes, and other lower throughput platforms. Shown here, imaging at 10x of a microscope slide with GFP and DAPI in larval tissues. To the left, you can see a map of the coverslip, with the fields of view indicated. To the right, quick view of images from the slide.
