CSU becomes the de facto standards for live cell imaging
Your microscope can be easily upgraded to confocal microscope with Confocal Scanner Unit. The multi-beam scanning method offers not only high-speed imaging but also significantly reduced photo-toxicity and photo bleaching because of very reduced laser power of each beamlet. The CSU series have been already delivered more than 2,000 units and supported leading-edge research around the world.
High speed imaging and minimal photo-toxicity and photo bleaching
Highly flexible system expandability

Image Cytometry Techniques for Cell Cycle Analysis via the CQ1 Imaging Cytometer
March 11, 2015 10 AM Pacific Time
Advancements in imaging techniques and software have made it possible to perform cell cycle analysis while utilizing multiple color channels to monitor additional markers. The combination of the CQ1 Image Cytometer and the powerful Multicycle mathematical modeling component of FCS Express Image Cytometry allows you to remove the debris component and de-convolute the multiple peaks in DNA analysis histograms for more accurate results. Join this webinar to learn more about imaging for cell cycle monitoring and downstream analysis of data in FCS Express.
November 1, 2014 De Novo Software and Yokogawa have collaborated to make the import of results and images from the CQ1 high content systems possible. FCS Express is directly compatible with data exported from the CQ1 software through the .ICE file format. The collaboration is an ongoing process and capabilities are continuously growing. Learn more about how the CQ1 integrates with FCS Express with the CQ1 Confocal Quantitative Image Cytometer Flyer. Please contact us if you have questions about using De Novo Software with Yokogawa CQ1 multi-parametric or Imaging data.
