Lionheart LXAutomated Microscope
BioTek’s new Lionheart LX Automated Microscope is designed with affordability in mind, offering an alternative to expensive, custom-built automated microscopes that are complex to learn and use. The compact, ocular-free hardware design eases ergonomic discomfort. Along with Gen5™ software, Lionheart LX enables Augmented Microscopy™, which fully automates image capture, processing and analysis. Load samples, start a run and come back to publication-ready images and quantitative data. Lionheart LX can help increase your research output while reducing processing time and costs.

With brightfield, color brightfield and fluorescence imaging in four channels – and more than twenty available filter/LED cubes, Lionheart LX offers fantastic versatility that isn’t limited to image capture. Imaging processes from z-stacking to z-projection, montage collection to stitching; plus analysis from label-free cell counting to mitochrondrial membrane potential are all accomplished with Lionheart LX and Gen5 software.
Easy imaging workflow automation
BioTek’s Augmented Microscopy automates image capture, processing and analysis for publication-ready images and data. Automated image capture starts with image-based and laser autofocus, plus auto LED and exposure. Automated image pre-processing optimizes images for downstream analysis, from cell counting to characterization of subcellular details.
Get cell counts and confluence calculations directly on the live camera feed. Gen5 software controls Lionheart LX to quickly find the region of interest and display counts onscreen without needing to capture the image. The quick analyze function works for samples in a variety of labware.
More than 20 filter/LED color cubes
BioTek has the most comprehensive selection of imaging filter and LED cubes available for use with our Lionheart and Cytation imagers. This large selection of colors enables image capture for a broad range of applications. Download our convenient Imaging Cube Selection Guide here.
