A dramatically new concept in simple, inexpensive, and accessible fluorescence microscopy. The Etaluma LumaScope provides provides fluorescence and brightfield capability in a small, portable, and easy to use microscope. Small enough to fit into a cabinet or workstation, the Lumascope is available with select new and existing Baker and Baker Ruskinn equipment.
LumaScope provides the three most important accessibility traits: It is significantly less expensive than other scopes, it is much easier to use, and its size and portability make it available anytime, anywhere. All without sacrificing the image quality you demand.
- Powerful - The Etaluma LumaScope is fluorescence and brightfield capable, providing high-quality images and fast frame-rates for easy routine inspection of cells in slides, plates, and flasks.
- Flexible - The LumaScope is portable and fits into Baker cabinets and Baker Ruskinn hypoxia workstations with ease.
- Simple - Easy to set up and virtually no training required. To operate, plug the USB into any PC and start working - no AC power required.
- Value - The LumaScope’s simple design dramatically reduces cost of ownership while maintaining publishing-quality images in brightfield, phase contrast, and multi-color fluorescence.
- Cell presence and distribution
- Cell confluence
- General cell health
- Fluorescent protein expression
- Label brightness
More sophisticated uses are also easily achieved with the LumaScope: cell counting or hemocytometry and growth monitoring. Using the LumaScope, it is possible to monitor cells remotely through the web from within a tissue culture incubator, overnight, away from the lab.
- Yields a magnification on familiar laptop displays of approximately 20× with a field of view of 1 mm square.
- Brightfield capability included
- USB interface, enabling easy integration with larger systems and remote monitoring
- Small enough to fit on a desk, lab bench, or in an incubator or tissue culture hood (approximately 190 × 125 × 115 mm).
- Long-term incubator imaging and Time Lapse
- Cell doubling and movement measurements
- Stem Cell differentiation movies
