The IncuCyte® ImageLock Plates when used in conjunction with IncuCyte® software, allow high-quality image registration for time-lapse imaging even in circumstances when the microplates are temporarily removed from the system.
The ImageLock® plate technology is enabled by fiducial markers on the bottom of the plate which provide points from which image locations can be accurately referenced. The marks are so fine that they do not interfere with images acquired at the cell plane. Since the mark moves with the plate, the technique works even if the plate is removed from the system and later replaced.
The technology enables a user to revisit and image the same cells at multiple time points and is especially useful for multi-day, long-term live-cell imaging applications.
Plates are individually packaged, sterile, TC –treated, in 96-well format.
