The Acquifer imaging machine is a fully automated microscopy system for small model organisms and cell-based screening applications. It is an easy-to-use, high speed screening platform especially for time-lapse recording and is focused on high stability, easy maintenance, maximum experiment reproducibility and long-term data transparency.
Typical applications include screening of zebrafish, drosophila, yeast, cells and 3D-cell cultures. The combination of a static microtiter plate and moving objectives, provides an optimised research platform for samples in agarose, gel and water.
With optimised temperature and CO2 control, pressure free incubation, linear motor and laser auto-focus, optimised images can be acquired throughout the image acquisition process.
