Long-term, time-lapse imaging without focus drift

Hematopoietic differentiation of hES cells

Widefield image (3×3)

Time-lapse movie showing morphological changes from day 0 to day 28 (hematopoietic differentiation of hES cells). The images were taken in combination with perfusion components at 10x magnification every 8 minutes for 4 weeks.
