LumaScope 420 Color Live Cell Microscope

Full Color. From Your Incubator.

Low cost time lapse photography

The LumaScope 420 Color Live Cell Microscope is a full color, inverted brightfield microscope with an emphesis on cost savings.  Enabled by state-of-the-art components, the LumaScope is the first design to strip away all unnecessary design elements.  What remains is a quirky box that pushes the edge of image quality and acquisition.  The system functions in bright field with full color detection, and completely fits in just about any cell culture incubator.  This makes it ideal for hands-off, automated image acquisition – no perturbation, no expensive stage required.  It is also very nice for remote or classroom conditions, or simply as an affordable microscope that sits in an out-of-the-way location on your lab bench.

Flexible enough to answer most questions

Let’s propose some questions and see if the LumaScope is clever enough for an answer.  Can it replace my existing microscope?  Certainly, the LumaScope is a full functioning microscope with the ability to visualize cells on slides, flasks and plates.  Is it easy to set-up?  Simply connect to a local computer with a USB cable – that’s enough to both control and power the microscope. Need to acquire images in an incubator?  That’s simple too. Simply place it on a shelf, no need to remove other shelves.  Want a broader field of view?  Try the 10x objective.  Need to study subcellular structures? Try swapping in the 40x objective for high resolution imaging.  Can it do time lapse studies?  That’s what the LumaScope is designed for.  Program it to acquire images over seconds, minutes, hours or days – the applications are unlimited.
