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.
