S6 Ultimate M2

This is our top of the line model. It enables advanced 12-color fluorescent work, in addition to 12 color bright field studies, live-dead-apoptotic cell counting, and histological analysis. It is also ideally suited for multi-color viral neutralization and infectivity assays as well as differential bacterial colony counting. A powerful zoom lens not only affords optical resolution suited for multi-color single-cell analysis but enables high resolution work in any well format. Its modular design permits customization for optimizing many imaging applications. It comes loaded with software supporting a wide range of assays. This instrument is high-throughput capable handling up to 400 plates per run when equipped with our automated plate loader. It has been designed for professionals working in the regulated or academic field.
