The Hermes automated high content imager from Idea-Bio is designed for analysis of 3D cultures (organoids and spheroids), primary, fixed and living cells. The Hermes is also well known for its easy and precise detection of zebrafish.
The system documents the quantification of your cells and its morphological changes. Also, it measures the fluorescence intensity.
An specific example can explained with the zebrafish. The imaging of zebra fish is possible because of the automatically distinguishment of the parts of the fish (head, torso, tail) and its organs (including eye, yolk, spine, tail, brain, internal granules and more). With this feature the detection is eased as only the specific area of interest is analysed. This is all possible due to the Hermes artificial intelligence (AI) driven analysis.
The Hermes High Content Imager has a patented U-shaped well scanning. This U-shaped well will place your cells and fish in the correct position.
Save time: The software automatically removes the images where the cells or organisms are not placed properly.
HERMES presents 7 fluorescent colours and many air objectives. These 7 LED sources are DAPI, CFP, GFP, YFP, RFP, mCherry and CY5 plus a white LED. Besides that, it contains 2 emission filters and a compatible dichroic filter. The images that are retrieved are publicity quality, due to the varied zoom from 2x to 60x for the most detailed pictures.

Do you research with living cells? The HERMES environmental control makes it ideal to work with living cells.
The fully automated high content imager requires minimal involvement. It loads and unloads the plates automatically into the imager and from the built-in stacker (20 plates). These plates can be incubated at 37 °C and 5% CO2. Additionally, it produces multiple visualisation tools such as scatter plots, histograms, heat maps, time graphs and dose curves.
For instance, studies have been performed using colon cancer stem cells, Dental Pulp stem cells and Adipogenically Differentiating Mesenchymal Stromal/Stem Cells.
As research goes on, many more applications are supported by Hermes.
