Application example: Small hepatocytes
Small hepatocytes (a type of liver progenitor cell) are smaller and have a higher potential to proliferate, compared with adult hepatocytes.
Different containers are usually used during the cultivation and experiment periods, making it difficult to to find and image the correct areas.
Objective lens: CFI Plan Apo λ 4x
Image stitching: 9 x 12 images
An area of interest can be observed simply by clicking a container and selecting it
Once you have the BZ-X:
The large motorized stage accommodates a multi-well plate can be used for observation.
For large wells that do not fit in the field-of-view, a single high-resolution image can be obtained by stitching together several adjacent areas.
Using the Stage View, just click the well to observe, and the stage will automatically navigate to it.
Automated scanning of multiple wells is also possible by registering the target well locations.
Simply selecting the type of a container being used changes the Stage View accordingly.
