Olympus FV10i-LIV Confocal with Live-Cell

A self-contained fully motorized laser scanning confocal microscope specially designed for live-cell imaging.


  • FV10i-LIV is the world's first self-contained confocal laser scanning microscope.
  • FV10i-LIV supports multi-area and multi-color imaging, enabling efficient and easy data acquisition.
  • FV10i-LIV has a newly developed automated water dispensing system enabling long-term time-lapse imaging.
  • FV10i-LIV is provided with a simplified built-in incubator and a culture pod with recirculation ability, making it the most ideal system for live cell imaging.
