Digital Microscope Simplifies Cell Culture Checks

Mar 13 2023

Mateo TL, a new digital transmitted light inverted microscope for routine cell culture, has been launched by Leica Microsystems. With Mateo TL, lab members can easily and comfortably check and document cell growth. By consistently measuring confluency, they can be confident in the readiness of their samples for downstream experiments.

“Good cell culture sample preparation is an important starting point for every successful experiment, and now it has become even easier and more reliable with Mateo TL,” said James O’Brien, Vice President of Life Sciences and Applied Microscopy at Leica Microsystems.

“During the sample preparation process, subjective judgements are often used for sample readiness assessments, which can compromise the quality and the outcome of experiments, said Jennifer Kulhei, Product Manager, Life Science and Research Microscopy at Leica Microsystems.

With Mateo TL, labs can establish a reliable criterion for evaluating confluency, improving experiment reproducibility. The confluency algorithm measures the percentage of cell coverage in the image, enabling consistent measurements across multiple users. Additionally, users can work in a sterile environment to minimise contamination risk by placing Mateo TL directly under the flow hood, ensuring the integrity of their experimental outcomes.

Mateo TL is a user-friendly microscope that is easy to set up and use, even for non-experts. It is designed to support cell culture checks for a range of users, from principal investigators and postdoctoral researchers to PhD and master's students, as well as lab technicians, all of whom may have varying levels of microscopy expertise. The microscope can be set up in less than a minute, providing a ready-to-use system that team members can start working on immediately. Once set up, cell culture checks are made easy for the whole team with Mateo TL's user-friendly software interface, enabling simple live viewing and image acquisition.

In addition to its user-friendly design, Mateo TL streamlines cell culture checks by improving efficiency and convenience. With its convenient file sharing capabilities, smart light and camera settings, and enhanced ergonomics, Mateo TL empowers teams to spend less time on routine cell culture checks and more time on their experiments.
