InVivo FLite Microscope

Simple. Affordable. Convenient.

The InVivo FLite is an easy-to-use microscope that can quickly detect if your C. elegans samples are fluorescent.  With the FLite you don't need to visit a core facility or ask special permission to use an expensive microscope.  Look at your samples when you want and on your own terms.  It is easy to generate and save images AND videos of your C. elegans!  The FLite wants you to keep it simple so that you can spend more time doing your research.  Reduce the possibility of getting COVID from your lab mate because there is no contact with shared eyepieces.  Our "Gecko" system is for detecting green fluorescence or "Chameleon" if you need both red and green.  Both systems come standard with brightfield and in the kit we include FREE InVivo Biosystem reagents for imaging.
