Rapidly perform high content imaging assays with the affordable, compact Thermo Scientific™ CellInsight™ CX5 High Content Screening (HCS) Platform.

The CellInsight CX5 High Content Screening (HCS) Platform is a fast, simple-to operate, automated cellular imaging and analysis benchtop platform designed for quantitative imaging. For the researcher looking to gain the advantage of quantitative cell analysis for the first time or for those who are looking to increase scale and capacity, the CellInsight CX5 HCS Platform offers a costs effective, but powerful way to quickly automate quantitative cellular imaging.

  • Flexible – designed to work with or without fluorescent labeling, the new CellInsight CX5 HCS Platform uses transmitted light allowing users to explore more cell biology without the restriction of fluorescent dyes or to use the full capabilities of a five-color light engine
  • Affordable – automated high content imaging for all budgets
  • Easy to Use – quickly build and optimize image-based assays with included Thermo Scientific™HCS Studio™ 2.0 Cell Analysis Software
  • Performance – scan and analyze a 96-well plate in under four minutes
  • Quality – high-quality imaging and virtually maintenance-free operation
  • Compact – fits on a bench and is less than 2 ft. on all sides
  • Make individual cell, subcellular and multicellular measurements
  • Save time by automatically collecting only the images and data you need to be statistically relevant
  • Make multiple measurements per object, over time if desired
  • Measure subpopulations and reject undesired objects automatically
Easy to Use Applications:
  • Comprehensively pre-validated and user configurable image analysis without scripting or programming
  • Exploratory assay development tools and specific biology optimized tools
  • Define biological thresholds for outputs based on control populations
  • Ability to create multi-parameter “gates” from individual output measurements
Hardware and Software:
  • HCS Studio 2.0 Cell Analysis Software – the premier high content instrument control, visualization and analysis program for novice to advanced users featuring image/data portability
  • Ultra-stable, long-life light source reduces variability, increases data quality, and decreases operating costs
  • Fluorescence options which include near-IR wavelengths
  • Proprietary Thermo Scientific™ AccuFocus System is fast, yet flexible, imaging cells with high-fidelity every time
  • Unique intelligent acQuisition (iQ) real time analysis feedback to optimize image collection and data quality
  • Compatible with SBS standard microplates (6-1536 well) and slides
