Empower your research with IncuCyte® Live-Cell Analysis Systems

Real-time Quantitative Live-cell Imaging and Analysis — Inside Your Incubator

As part of Sartorius’ dedication to providing the most innovative portfolio for cell analysis in the industry, we offer Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis Systems.  These are ground-breaking solutions for live-cell imaging, which deliver new insights into biological mechanisms at unprecedented speeds, depth and scale.

Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis Systems are real-time quantitative live-cell imaging and analysis platforms that enable visualization and quantification of cell behavior over time, by automatically gathering and analyzing images around the clock within a standard laboratory incubator. This enables researchers to make time-lapsed, kinetic measurements from living cells over days and weeks thus providing insight into active biological processes in real time.
