Thermo Fisher Scientific EVOS XL Core Imaging System Microscope

Thermo Fisher Scientific EVOS XL Core Imaging System Microscope

The EVOS XL Core Imaging System offers you these important advantages:

• Easy installation; no maintenance, assembly, alignment, or calibration

• Configured for four objectives

• Fits and operates inside a cell culture hood

• All-in-one design: digital camera, precision optics, LCD display, and USB storage

Imaging Anywhere

The EVOS XL Core system is an integrated transmitted-light inverted imaging system that combines high-quality optics, a 12.1 high-resolution LCD display, and a digital color camera. Images are seamlessly acquired through the user interface using a mouse and the integrated software that includes a variety of features, such as color temperature control. All images can be saved onto the USB device in JPEG, BMP, or TIFF formats. Applications suited for the EVOS XL Core system include basic imaging of live and fixed cells, tissue culture determinations (confluence, density, and growth), stem cell isolation, and analysis of stained tissue slices.

The EVOS imaging systems are built from the ground up to maximize performance and optimize workflow. You will be astonished at how easy it is to operate and amazed at how extraordinary your images look on-screen. 


The four-position objective turret can be configured to best meet your needs using our full range of long working distance (LWD) and coverslip-corrected objectives. LWD objectives are available from 4x to 40x, and our 2x objective allows viewing of the entire well of a 96-well plate. The compact footprint makes it easy to use the EVOS XL Core system wherever needed; the entire system can be easily moved into a cell culture hood or glove box. The EVOS XL Core system is designed with a universal stage that provides maximum flexibility for slides, culture dishes, and flasks. The optional mechanical stage affords more precise handling and positioning of multiwell plate vessels.

Easy to Use and Reliable

The EVOS XL Core Imaging System is plug-and-play. In addition to an exceptionally easy set-up and installation, it requires no warm-up or cool-down periods. The LED light source offers exceptional stability and durability—turn the unit on and off whenever you need to image a sample. The LED bulbs are rated for >50,000 hours (∼17 years) of life, compared to 300 hours for a typical mercury bulb and 1,500 hours for a metal halide bulb. The long life and low energy consumption translate into significantly lower operating costs compared to instruments with conventional light sources. Finally, the advanced ergonomic design of the EVOS systems removes the strain associated with conventional microscopes, enables shared viewing, and makes moving the units easy.
