Automated Imaging from Organelles to Organisms - WiScan Hermes

Dedicated to high content imaging and analysis for image-based assays in cell biology studies and drug discovery processes, a new High Content Imaging System WiScan Hermes - brings publication-quality images at high throughput speeds to the research lab.

Experience a unique combination of the primary functions of automated microscopy: Image quality and acquisition speed.

Patented mechanisms with full process robustness enable heavy-duty operation (24/7).

Flexibility for analytical challenges

  • up to 7 colors + bright field
  • magnification range 2x - 60x
  • use a variety of multi-well plates, slides, dishes

 

Take a Closer Look

Push-button operation gives access even to novice users, while experienced microscopists will appreciate the comprising application-based image analysis tools of WiSoft Athena image analysis software.

Scan a 96-well plate in 2 min, or a 1536 well plate in 5 mins.

Hermes WiScan operates at extremely high speeds of image acquisition. Multi-channel imaging of a 384 well plate with four colors is finalized after 5 min - in all ranges of magnification, achieving an image resolution from 0.1 - 3 µm/pixel 60x - 2x.

 

Time Lapse Experiments

Live-cell imaging gets feasible by the instrument's environmental stabilization conditions. While the objectives are moved for scanning, the microplate remains fixed during the assay.

 

Object Mapping

Smart object mapping further enhances throughput: at fast low magnification scans whole wells, identifying areas of interest, which are then imaged at higher magnification (e.g., 20x - 60x) using patented automatic objective changer.


Automation

Readily interface WiScan to plate stackers and robotic plate handlers for efficient high-resolution imaging 24/7 experiments, including remote accessibility. Numerous established lab robots are supported.
