Hermes High content imaging system with environmental control for live cell experiments enables time-lapse imaging to continuously monitor live cell proliferation, morphology and viability, follow dynamic processes and characterize changes of cell populations. Real-time cell analysis can be applied to detect isles of interest within the well and re-visit specific objects to monitor and capture their activity over time.
- Rapid scanning rate (e.g. 96 locations in less than 2 minutes)
- 200nm localization repeatability
- Microplate does not move along the scanning process, avoiding vibrations to the gentle biological samples and achieving high re-positioning accuracy
- Multi time point scanning
- Flexible definition of cycles and intervals
- Apply real-time cell analysis using rare events automatic detection and follow-up over time with option to select objects for re-visiting

C-Elegans live imaging
Live imaging of the nematode Caenorhabditis Elegans acquired with Hermes high content imaging system in bright field and Red fluorescence channel.
Mitochondria in live cells
Mito-tracker labeling to follow the formation of mitochondria clusters in live cells.
OT-II T-cells (blue) co-cultured with ovalbumin-loaded DCs (green), with cell death marker (red) (propidium iodide). Both clusters and single cells were able to join and leave existing clusters.
