Microscope cell culture incubator

Project Overview

Live cell imaging systems provide a controlled environment for cells to continue to live in while imaging is performed. Current live cell imaging chambers that are compatible with a standard inverting microscope are expensive and do not perform well with small culture vessels such as microfluidic devices. The teamís goal is to design a low-cost incubator for use on a microscope that can sustain cell life while imaging is performed on a variety of cell-culture platforms.

Project Status

The focus for the coming semester will be to improve the initial design created last semester by streamlining the electronics components and performing more rigorous cell culture testing.
