Medium-to-high throughput confocal microscope imaging system from Yokogawa.

Olympus America Inc. has been named the sole North American distributor of the CV1000 Cell Voyager, an all-in-one, medium-to-high-throughput live cell imaging system from Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Tokyo, Japan.

Olympus will offer the compact, easy to use, spinning-disk laser confocal microscope, which is designed for long-term time-lapse imaging, to scientists in the US and Canada.

Using the CV1000, researchers are free to focus on their science instead of their system.

The compact solution provides the same high-end image quality of a traditional confocal system, but without the need for a highly trained imaging expert or a darkroom.

The CV1000 is optimized for researchers working in biopharma or biotechnology; embryology; stem cell biology; cancer studies; cell biology; cell differentiation, proliferation, or migration; developmental biology; plant studies; and others whose work requires medium-to-high-throughput imaging, using 96- or 384-well plates.

Single slides and dishes, along with some incubator chambers, also can be accommodated.

The spinning-disk system offers lower levels of photo bleaching and a hybrid of laser-based and contrast-based autofocus, which makes it ideal for multipoint time-lapse studies that require imaging over hours or days.

With the benchtop system’s intuitive, straightforward software, users quickly learn to generate bright, high quality images. Multipoint time-lapse studies are stable, thanks to highly accurate position reproducibility and precise environmental controls.

Users can select from two pinhole sizes to optimize resolution for both low and high magnifications.

The system can accommodate any of six Olympus dry or oil-immersion objectives ranging from 10x to 100x, as well as the unique 30x and 60x silicone objectives.
