GE Healthcare’s IN Cell Analyzer 6000 is a high-performance, laser-based, confocal imaging platform designed for the most demanding high-content cellular assays and screens including live cell assays, 3D imaging, co-localization studies and imaging of assays with low signal.

In contrast to conventional fixed aperture confocal systems, the IN Cell Analyzer 6000 has a proprietary optical system which features a variable, iris-like aperture which mimics the action of the eye. The fully adjustable aperture is intuitively controlled via the user interface, and can be adjusted to be used in; open mode to maximize speed; full confocal mode to maximize image quality and background rejection; or any setting in between to optimize the imaging performance of a specific biology for each channel of an assay.

Incorporating the latest generation scientific CMOS camera, which delivers a 4x larger field of view with 5× less noise than traditional CCD cameras, the IN Cell Analyzer 6000 delivers significantly increased sensitivity and reduced exposure times to maximize throughput in screening settings.

The instrument will be showcased at the SBS 17th Annual Conference and Exhibition, March 27 – 31 2011, Orlando, Florida (Booth 813), and also at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 102nd Annual Meeting April 3 – 6 Orlando, Florida (Booth 151)
