Rare events on-the-fly
Highly complex assay designs are possible with the LAS AF MATRIX M3 Developer Suite. The Mitocheck project*, conducted at the EMBL in Heidelberg is an excellent example for comprehensive and flexible automation.
The self-acting process automates rare event mitosis identification, combining pre-scan, object selection and high content object scan.

Easy automation - we keep it simple!
LAS AF MATRIX Mosaic
Fine details and the overview matter to evaluate experimental results.
Leica HCS A provides entirely new designed mosaic algorithms for excellent results. At the push of a button large high content images are fully automatically generated.

LAS AF MATRIX Multiwell
Answers to more complex questions require a larger number of sophisticated experiments. Leica HCS A supports frequently used multiwell plate formats to study multi-dimensional experiments automatically and time resolved.
