Guarantee success with Olympus’ cell culture solutions including microscopes, cell confluency checker software and cell counters. Whether you’re working in cell biology, cancer, stem cell research or advanced applications, good cell culture practices can be the difference between success and failure. Follow these steps for success!

Standardising conditions protects against failure, ensuring samples are comparable. When cells are cultured in variable conditions, growth patterns and gene expression of cellular functions are altered. Providing a new level of accuracy, Olympus’ CKX53 microscope with the CKX-CCSW confluency checker software utilises an exclusive proprietary cell counting algorithm, quickly creating quantifiable cell growth data to determine when cells require passaging, experimentation or storage. For accurate in-solution cell counts, the Cell Counter Model R1 uses an innovative liquid lens technology that mimics the way human eyes focus providing accurate and fast counting results for a variety of cell types.

Documenting cell culture results provides an accurate picture of cell behaviour over time, allowing traceability for future reference, audits, peer review queries or patent applications. Measurement records can be saved and exported from the CKX-CCSW confluency checker software as a CSV file for further analysis or archiving, or easily paired with associated cell culture images for comprehensive recording. In addition, the intuitive interface enables highly accurate, reproducible data with minimal training, simplifying lab processes and analysis for every team member. The new software complements the CKX53 cell culture microscope and Cell Counter Model R1, which creates an accurate cell count report in just 15 seconds that can be stored and exported for standardising and documentation.

Raise the quality of downstream live-cell imaging and ensure that even challenging experiments always run quickly and smoothly with the new Fluoview FV3000 confocal laser scanning microscope. Discover the benefits of the fastest scanner on the market, combined with the filter-less TruSpectral detection system adapting to any dye spectrum of the experiment.

Don’t miss out on your next breakthrough 
From cell culture to downstream experimentation, Olympus solutions support scientists in perfecting a standardised and easily documented cell culture workflow and live cell imaging for success in life science experiments.
