A full confocal HCA solution
Designed for high-throughput, speed, and sensitivity, IN Cell Analyzer 6500HS is a third-generation laser-based confocal imaging system from GE Healthcare. Building on the capabilities of earlier IN Cell Analyzer systems, IN Cell Analyzer 6500HS performs a wide range of high-content assays from basic multicolor fixed-cell assays to the most complex 3D- and live-cell assays. Multiple hardware and software improvements increase imaging speed and enabling acquisition of the highest quality images—even for demanding 3D samples such as spheroids. Combined with new IN Carta software, which simplifies image analysis workflows, IN Cell Analyzer 6500HS enables users of all levels to perform powerful analysis as part of a complete HCA solution from assay to answer.
IN Cell Analyzer 6500HS is designed to eliminate systematic variability and give you confidence in your results. With reliable autofocus under all conditions, vibration isolation, and environmental control designed for uniformity, you can be assured that your data is a true representation of the biological phenomena in question.
Contrast is the most important thing to consider when automated image analysis is generating your data. The higher the contrast, the more reliable the segmentation and quantitation. The IRIS confocal design uses an adjustable virtual aperture to optimize image quality for each individual channel. Building on the benefits of IRIS, EDGE confocal technology dramatically increases contrast in thick samples while preserving the quantitative information you need for reliable analysis.
The difference between a standard microscope and an automated HCA system built for screening is primarily a person’s intervention and their time. A common approach to solving this problem is to image everything. Smart scanning features on IN Cell Analyzer 6500HS can automate the human element and reduce the total time and data load by finding structures of interest and inspecting them in more detail.
Speed and sensitivity
Technology is constantly evolving and IN Cell Analyzer platforms are keeping pace. With the latest sCMOS camera technology, IN Cell Analyzer 6500HS provides lower noise, shorter exposure times, and faster frame rates. In addition, hardware optimizations tailored to multichannel experiments increase both speed and throughput for 2D and 3D experiments.
