FAQ for Live-Cell Imaging and Analysis Instrument: Incucyte® SX1
Fluorescent channels vary depending on the instrument. In the case of the Incucyte® SX1 is equipped with two-color Green/Red fluorescence plus HD Phase imaging.
The Incucyte® itself is not an incubator but sits within a standard tissue culture incubator so cells are maintained in a physiologically relevant environment. For the Incucyte® SX1, an incubator larger than 200L is recommended.
We are a small lab that is just starting out in the cell analysis market. What is the best Incucyte® model that you would recommend?
The Incucyte® SX1 is a great budget-friendly option that can support the same applications as an Incucyte® S3, but at a lower throughput for smaller labs with less users. It is an ideal option for labs who are looking for a model that better suits their budget. In addition, the Incucyte® SX1 can be upgraded to an Incucyte® S3 if the additional features and an increased throughput is needed in the future.
