Q: Is it possible to use my existing Hamamatsu camera with your imaging system?
A:You can take images with your camera, however in order to take advantage of the automated time-lapse imaging capabilities you must use our fully integrated system.

Q: What is the difference between the CT-2000F and the CT-2000?
A: The CT-2000F is the microfluidics component of the CT-2000 imaging system. The CT-2000F does not provide any automation capabilities for capturing images of cells in the cellTRAY.

Q: How is this system better than other live cell imaging systems available, also taking into consideration the applications submitted?
A: Nanopoint’s cellTRAY Live Cell Imaging System CT-1000 provides powerful imaging and precise navigation. When used together with the cellTRAY Microfluidics System CT-2000F a solution is provided that is ideal for live cell imaging applications that require several days of cell survival while automatically documenting changes that occur. The integrated life support system, the stage level incubator, along with the cellTRAY slide, enable 10 independent, individually addressable regions that can be infused with separate treatments. The combination of the CT-1000 automated imaging along with the CT-2000F fluid delivery system, now known as the CT-2000 (available Sept 08) provides a complete solution to experiments requiring long-term cell survival along with high replication, multiple region comparisons and a reproducible environment. We are not aware of any directly comparable systems available in the market at this time.

Q: Can we use different cells for different experiments on various regions of the cellTRAY?
A: No, the cellTRAY device was designed for one type of cell to be seeded. The full solution system was designed to use one cell type per cellTRAY and to deliver various drugs, growth factors, reagents, or other test articles into different regions. The use of multiple cellTRAYs with different cell lines for the same experimental variables is time and cost effective, and reduces risk of cross contamination of cells.
