ImageXpress® Micro XLS System is a widefield automated microscope capable of fluorescent, transmitted light, and phase-contrast imaging and high content analysis of fixed- or live-cell assays, tissues and small organisms. It is equipped with a 4.66 megapixel scientific CMOS camera. Objectives range from 10x – 60x with optional phase contrast. The solid state white-light engine is suitable for most fluorescent applications with excitation wavelengths ranging between 380 – 680 nm. A colourimetric filter cube and eight fluorescence filter cubes allow detection of chromogenic- and most fluorescent dyes. Environmental control allows regulation of temperature, humidity and CO2 for high-content kinetic and time lapse experiments over extended periods of time. Equipped with a sample preparation station for preparation of 384-well plates. MetaXpress Imaging and Analysis software.
List of fluorescence filter cubes (Ex : Em in nm):
377/50 : 447/60
472/30 : 520/35
482/35 : 536/40
