The perfect solution for long term, live cell time-lapse microscopy.
The Nikon BioStation IM-Q is a compact cell incubator and monitoring system that allows users with minimal microscopy experience to conduct live cell imaging without a steep learning curve.
Total System Integration
The BioStation IM-Q incorporates a motorized inverted microscope, an incubation chamber, and a high-sensitivity cooled CCD camera into a single package. Being an all-in-one, complete solution from one vendor, the IM-Q overcomes stability and compatibility issues experienced in multi-vendor systems.
Cells are easily maintained at the appropriate temperature, humidity and CO2 (or O2 ) levels with BioStation IM-Q. 5% CO2 (or O2 ), either from a premixed tank or the optional CO2 (or O2) mixer is humidified by bubbling through a bottle of water located at the front of the instrument.
Phase and Fluorescence Imaging Capabilities
Phase contrast images of unsurpassed quality are obtained with BioStation IM-Q, which uses a red LED as the transmitted light source. BioStation’s phase elements never need alignment, and the red transmitted light was proven to be cell friendly.
