Lionheart LXAutomated Microscope
BioTek’s new Lionheart LX Automated Microscope is designed with affordability in mind, offering an alternative to expensive, custom-built automated microscopes that are complex to learn and use. The compact, ocular-free hardware design eases ergonomic discomfort. Along with Gen5™ software, Lionheart LX enables Augmented Microscopy™, which fully automates image capture, processing and analysis. Load samples, start a run and come back to publication-ready images and quantitative data. Lionheart LX can help increase your research output while reducing processing time and costs.
With its comprehensive feature set, Lionheart LX automates many microscopy workflows, including:
- Cell migration and invasion assays
- Cell counting
- Endpoint live cell assays (apoptosis, autophagy, cytotoxicity and others)
- Histology (H&E)
- Label-free cell counting
These are just a few examples of the many important applications for Lionheart LX. Visit our Applications page to see more.
Affordable automated digital microscopy
Lionheart LX has an automated 6-objective turret and can contain up to 4 LED/filter cubes for multi-channel image capture. The precise automated stage and autofocus, auto exposure and other Gen5 software features enable simple, automated image capture and analysis.
High contrast brightfield, color brightfield and fluorescence imaging
With brightfield, color brightfield and fluorescence imaging in four channels – and more than twenty available filter/LED cubes, Lionheart LX offers fantastic versatility that isn’t limited to image capture. Imaging processes from z-stacking to z-projection, montage collection to stitching; plus analysis from label-free cell counting to mitochrondrial membrane potential are all accomplished with Lionheart LX and Gen5 software.
Augmented Microscopy: Easy imaging workflow automation
BioTek’s Augmented Microscopy automates image capture, processing and analysis for publication-ready images and data. Automated image capture starts with image-based and laser autofocus, plus auto LED and exposure. Automated image pre-processing optimizes images for downstream analysis, from cell counting to characterization of subcellular details.
Quick analyze: instant cell count and confluence measurement
Integrated, compact design offers quick installation and setup
Lionheart LX integrates all microscopy hardware into a very compact footprint, saving valuable bench space. The easily accessible objectives and LED/filter cubes make setup and operation fast and simple, with a minimal learning curve.
