ImageXpress Micro 4


Widefield imaging for basic research through to high-content screening
The ImageXpress  Micro 4 High-Content Imaging System is a high-throughput, widefield imager that can acquire images of whole organisms and cellular or intracellular events. It features proprietary fast frame rate technology, allowing for the capture of fast biological processes such as calcium oscillations in cardiomyocytes. It is highly configurable and adaptable to changing research needs. Available options include confocal, brightfield, phase contrast, liquid handing, and environmental control.


Support many cellular assays
Image an incredible range of assays with various user-changeable filter cubes, 1-100x objectives, environmental control, fluidics option, and many sample formats including atypical plates for 3D assays.

Analyze images of more applications
A selection of feature-rich turnkey application modules is available with MetaXpress? software. For the development of novel assays, we offer an optional custom analysis module.

Tailor the system to meet your needs

The imager is a highly flexible solution, you can add or change many of the components as your research priorities change. Examples include enhance light engines and automation.

Multiple imaging modes
The system offers fluorescence, confocal, widefield, colorimetric, phase contrast, and brightfield label-free imaging. 

Field upgradeable to confocal
The system can be upgraded to include the AgileOptix? technology for accurate 3D volumetric analyses. 

Wide dynamic range
Low and high intensity signal quantification in a single image with >3 log dynamic range intensity detection.

High speed image acquisition
Using 4x magnification with a 1536-well plate, 225K wells per day can be acquired. Greater than a million wells per week can be imaged.

Optional environmental control
Temperature, humidity, and CO2 control for multi-day live-cell imaging or fast kinetic studies are available.

Large magnification range
Air and oil immersion objectives ranging from 1x to 100x are available for installation into the 4-position objective changer.
