WSL-1800 CytoWatcher is compact digital microscope.
No stress to take space in laboratory and moisture resistant for setting in CO2 incubator to detect time lapse live cell.
Purpose and Application
To detect bright field images for culture cell, stained cell/tissue, time-lapse live cell.
Usable like a microscope.
WSL-1800 CytoWatcher is applied a 5M pixels with color digital camera.
The camera is compatibility to detecting a cell, tissue etc.
CytoWatcher is simple to install only connect USB cable with PC and control software is able to detect an image, save an image, create movie file etc.
CytoWatcher is moisture resistant and usable in incubator, clean bench in order to detecting a time-lapse live cell.
Time-lapse live cell imaging with incubating
Set CytoWatcher at incubator and detected in time-lapse live cell
(Auto contrast:ON, created movie file)
Cultured NIH3T3 cells in 10cm dish
Time-lapse: 60 min intervals for 60 hours in CO2 incubator
Wound healing assay with NIH3T3 cells in 35mm dish
Time-lapse: 30 min intervals for 24 hours in CO2 incubator.
5M Pixels color digital camera
CytoWatcher is applied 4x object lens with 5M pixels color digital camera.
Field of view 1.425mm×1.070mm
1/4 Scale down
1/2 Scale down
Display 100％（Monitor resolusion 1：1）
Transparent cell case, difficult to see it because of low contrast.
Cytowatcher control software can catch easy to see it by auto-contrast adjusting function.
Before contrast adjustment
Auto-contrast adjusted image
