EzScope 101

Live Cell Imaging System

EzScope 101 is a dedicated live cell imaging system that helps to streamline your research workflow with improved efficiency and productivity, no more hassles to remove cells from incubator for observation. EzScope 101 brings 24/7 measurements under precisely controlled conditions in a non-perturbing environment. You can observe the images anytime with walk-away convenience. Up to four samples can be monitoring simultaneously in a same incubator.


Features and Benefits

incubator live viewHow does EzScope 101 help you to improve live cell imaging?




Incubator Live View

Designed to be used inside the incubator, without the need to remove your cells from incubator to enhance culture quality control.


Minimizes Experimental Variations

Up to four units of EzScope can to be setup in the same incubator and controlled by one computer. This enables the monitoring of samples simultaneously, reduces errors caused by environment variations.


Exceptional Image Quality

Adopts high contract brightfield optical configuration, coupled with precise motorized focusing, and two interchangeable magnifying objective lenses.


Remote Monitoring of Experiment

Allows flexible remote monitoring the assay via Windows-based remote desktop software.


Easy Image Editor

Captures and edits images easily with EzCapture software:


● Live preview for up to 4 units of EzScope

● Capture single image or time-lapse series

● Flatfielding correction for even brightfield background

● Time-lapse video output

● Spatial calibration

● Measure and convergence analysis


Featured Applications

EzScope 101 enables microscope-in-incubator to live view for real-time cell monitoring, migration, growth, and invasion, plus a wide range of phenotypic cell-based assays.

Customer Testimonials


“The compact size of the EzScope makes it suitable for placing in an incubator, allowing us to observe under an environment ideal for cell survival. In addition to real-time observation, we can also perform time-lapse overnight recording to gain a better understanding of cell morphology and save time. It is very convenient.” National Taiwan University


"the EzScope 101 realizes prolonged observation of live cells that was previously unavailable. It is convenient as it allows observation in an incubator and saves post-production time as its software provides sketching and calculation. " -  National Tsing Hua University


"With the EzScope 101 system, real-time remote observation without taking the chip out of the incubator of cell status is available, satisfying the need of process streamlining." - National Chiao Tung University
