Microscope cell culture incubator
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.
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.
