Dedicated to high content imaging and analysis for image-based assays in cell biology studies and drug discovery processes, a new High Content Imaging System WiScan Hermes - brings publication-quality images at high throughput speeds to the research lab.
Push-button operation gives access even to novice users, while experienced microscopists will appreciate the comprising application-based image analysis tools of WiSoft Athena image analysis software.
Scan a 96-well plate in 2 min, or a 1536 well plate in 20 mins.
Hermes WiScan operates at extremely high speeds of image acquisition. Multi-channel imaging of a 384 well plate with four colors is finalized after 5 min – in all ranges of magnification, achieving an image resolution from 0.1 – 3 µm/pixel 60x – 2x.
Live-cell imaging gets feasible by the instrument’s environmental stabilization conditions. While the objectives are moved for scanning, the microplate remains fixed during the assay.
Smart object mapping further enhances throughput: at fast low magnification scans whole wells, identifying areas of interest, which are then imaged at higher magnification (e.g., 20x – 60x) using patented automatic objective changer.
Readily interface WiScan to plate stackers and robotic plate handlers for efficient high-resolution imaging 24/7 experiments, including remote accessibility. Numerous established lab robots are supported.
Application tools for analysis and visualization comprise statistical analysis and sub-population analysis for
Choose from a broad range of renowned air objectives, while using a variety of plates and sample formats.
