Want to do long-term (days to weeks) observations of cultured cells in plates? Here is your chance (the system will only be here until March 14)!
The UIC is hosting an extended demo of a Nikon BioStation CT at our CCRB location. The BioStation CT is an integrated tissue culture incubator, microscope and digital imaging system with advanced image analysis software. This system automates the process of observing, documenting, and managing the complete cell culturing period for live cell screens. There are "stocker" positions for various culturing formats including well-plates, flasks, and dishes. While maintaining optimal environmental conditions, internal robotics shuttle the culture vessels between the stocker and microscope stage for acquiring phase contrast and five channels of fluorescence.
Please contact Mark Sanders to setup your demo.
