Why EVOS® Cell Imaging Systems?
An EVOS® system is a must-have in your lab for cell imaging—whether you’re capturing images for publication, teaching, or research. From cell culture to complex protein analysis to multichannel fluorescence imaging, EVOS® cell imaging systems help you perform a variety of routine and specialty applications. Our proprietary LED light cube technology minimizes photobleaching, offers >50,000 hours of LED illumination, and permits precise intensity adjustments—with no darkroom and no consumables costs.
Generate Publication-Quality Images
In today’s competitive scientific environment, generating publication-quality images is critical to your success. To help ensure that you get the publication-quality images you need, EVOS® systems give you top-of-the-line imaging components, including:
- High-quality cameras and optics to capture high-resolution images
- LED illumination to produce superior signal-to-noise ratios
- Easy-to-use image capture and processing software for ready-to-publish images
The Power of LED Illumination
|All EVOS® fluorescence cell imaging systems utilize LED light sources. That means you get high-intensity output over a short light path for the most efficient fluorophore excitation.|
Revolutionary Light Path
By placing the LED light cube as close as possible to the objective turret, the number of optical elements in the light path is minimized. High-intensity illumination over a short light path increases the efficiency of fluorophore excitation, providing better detection of weak fluorescent signals.
Constant Illumination, Consistent Results
Mercury arc lamps can decrease in intensity by 50% in the first 100 hours of operation—plus, images acquired in different sessions cannot be quantitatively compared using mercury illumination without complicated calibrations. Because EVOS® systems have continuous light cube intensity, users can rely on consistent illumination and can compare results quantitatively from images acquired on different days.

Lower Long-term Maintenance Costs Using LED Bulbs
The LED bulbs on the EVOS® systems are rated for >50,000 hours (~17 years), compared to 300 hours for a typical mercury bulb (and 1,500 hours for a metal halide bulb). That means a 70–75% savings in the overall upkeep of your instrument.

Higher Transmission Efficiencies With Hard-Coated Filters
Hard-coated filter sets are more expensive, but they have sharper edges and significantly higher transmission efficiencies that typically result in >25% more light transmission compared to traditional soft-coated filters. With the EVOS® system’s hard-coated filter sets, your light cubes cost less over time. Plus, you will have brighter fluorescence, higher transmission efficiencies, the ability to detect faint fluorescence signals, and better signal-to-noise ratios.
