The Cellavista® is a noninvasively measuring imaging system using brightfield and fluorescence detection with multiwell plates, chamber slides or RoboFlasks, for a broad range of cellular applications in cell line development, cellular research and drug discovery.

Automated Multiparameter Cell Analysis

The Cellavista® is a fast and flexible image-based platform with brightfield and multiple fluorescence detection capabilities. Equipped with 5 different magnifications, Cellavista® can deliver excellent results for a vast range of cellular applications. Commonly used in automated and high throughput environments, Cellavista® is able to image about 250 plates a day.


In 2007 SYNENTEC developed the 1st generation of Cellavista® - at times marketed by Innovatis and Roche - whose technology and image processing is constantly being improved.

Cellavista® is a fully automated cell imager designed for the characterization of cells as an integral step of your research, development and production process. The system is able to image organisms like zebrafish as well as cell fragments inside of a nuclei. The wide range of achievable resolutions makes this an ideal tool for research as well as for high throughput screening.

Cellavista® is set up with 6 different excitation sources and 6 different emission channels within the visible spectrum from UV (e.g. Hoechst/DAPI) to RED (e.g. Alexa®647).


  • automated, fast and non-invasive brightfield and fluorescence imaging with multiparameter image analysis.


  • SBS standard plate formats (384, 96, 24, 12…), dishes, T 25 flasks and microscope slides


  • automation ready set up for integration into automated environments and easy linking to robotic arms, plate stackers, incubators, liquid handlers and clone pickers (e.g. PAA, Hamilton, Tecan, Caliper, Beckman Coulter and ThermoFisher Scientific).

Cell Line Development – Precision Matters

The Cellavista® is the ideal tool to generate stable monoclonal cell populations expressing the desired phenotype with the potential for upscaling in a high-throughput manner (3.5 minutes for an entire 96 well plate)!

Cell colonies are automatically detected with the included YT-software and monoclonality can easily be determined by tracking back the colony growth to the first day. Colony size and, in case of co-transfection, the fluorescence intensity of the colony can be used as selection criteria for the high producing clones. Furthermore the productivity can be checked in combination with the PAIAplate.

Sure you could do the job yourself.
The question is “why”…. Not using the power of Cellavista®?

  • Single Cell Cloning (support of different methods and resolutions)
  • Trypan Blue Viability monitoring
  • Suspension Cell Count
  • FASC Seeding Control
  • Transfection Efficiency
  • Total Well Intensity
  • Microplate Quality Control

R & D – More Than High Resolution

Cellular research is the key to understand the functionality of different cell mechanisms e.g. in certain diseases or in the field of drug discovery. The Cellavista® cell imager with its associated image analysis software detects highly selective between different cellular characteristics.

Cellular assays are required for the development of new pharmaceuticals and therapies. The Cellavista® is your gateway to innovative cellular assays which can be demonstrated e.g. in the field of stem cell research with a resolution up to 306 nm per pixel!

Due to the high performance white light unit of the Cellavista® sophisticated brightfield applications with week contrast, such as iPS-cell characterization, are ideal for the Cellavista® imaging system!
