"Our first long-term live cell experiment with the LCI set up was planned to last 3 days – after 7 days we finally stopped - collected 166GB of data (Z-stacks for GFP and BFDIC at 25 different x-y coordinates every 30 minutes). The ease of use and fine control over the environment that LCI provides has kept our cells happy, without entering the incubator, for 7 days without opening the chamber (the longest so far tested).

I have also done numerous short-term drug studies using the LCI live cell system, which on our system requires that the chamber lid be opened and closed several times. With 30 x-y coordinates logged for imaging at 20X or 40X, opening and closing the lid was never an issue – we never lost a data point. Quorum is a great company to work with. "

Our work starting in 2003 has been to develop and improve a high-speed 3D confocal imaging system for innovative live-cell experiments. [you can hyperlink to the ref below if you want]. So we discovered Quorum when we needed a new laser system and service for our aging Yokogawa CSU21. Quorum successfully cleaned and upgraded the internal optics of the CSU 21 with only a week of the CSU being away from our lab. Moreover, their additional Borealis feature resolved our challenges with uneven illumination while also increasing the light throughput of the lasers. And the integrated mounting and coupling system for the camera, filter system, confocal, and microscope body improved convenience and alignment stability while also reducing light contamination. I am very impressed with the degree of careful thinking about quality and usability in their design. And, as someone who works "under-the-hood" in microscopy, I found it both reassuring and enjoyable to work with sales and installation staff who clearly understand their system. A positive experience and an excellent cost-benefit ratio.

"Several sophisticated research microscopy systems under my care are equipped with the LCI environmental control system. The first one was installed in 2007. It has proved to provide control for temperature, gas, and humidity over long periods. My colleagues and myself (Frigault et al., Journal of Cell Science 122: 753, 2009) were able to demonstrate mammalian cell growth over a period of several days.
Environment System

The experiments of some users have very stringent requirements for environmental controls for several hours (during whole mouse embryo development) and the LCI system provides it. Another great feature of the system is versatility. Being able to accommodate various sample formats (35mm dishes, chambered coverslips, chambered slides, etc.) is critical for multi-user systems. Moreover, it is easy to use, affordable, expandable (additional accessories can be purchased) and customizable, thanks to the high quality support provided by Quorum Technologies Inc."

We purchased the LCI system for our multi-user facility and have been very satisfied with the performance of it. It is easy to use, easy to set up and easy to remove when not needed, which is a key feature for a microscope which sees a lot of varied use and various levels of user sophistication.

Environment System
We received excellent technical support when first learning how to set it up and use it, primarily related to adjusting the CO2 levels from our cannisters. Since we do a fair bit of multi-photon and/or low-light level work, it is extremely handy to have the remote computer read-out of the system to know it is functioning without having to disturb the experiment. Additionally, being able to track the performance during overnight experiments can be a huge help if the cells died in the middle of the night. We have been very satisfied with the friendly customer support and the high quality of the LCI products.

" We use a Quorum WaveFX spinning disc confocal microscope to track fluorescently tagged proteins in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Using the WaveFX system, we can accurately determine the sub-cellular distributions of tagged proteins expressed from their endogenous chromosomal loci in live cells and track changes in these distributions over time. The quality of the images acquired on this microscopy platform far exceeds that which we have obtained using our previous microscope or other systems we have encountered in other laboratories. The WaveFX system has an intuitive and robust design, which has enabled us to quickly teach the skills necessary for its operation to new users. We are also extremely satisfied with the fast and efficient technical support we receive from Quorum and highly recommend it to others."

" Our research involves using basic cell biology and molecular biology to examine potential causes of neuronal degeneration, in particular with regards to the disease, ALS. What is and has been so wonderful about Quorum is the ability of all of Quorum's representatives to understand what equipment and software we require to answer our particular research questions.
 

It is obvious by their skill and expertise in the integration and set-up process of not only their products and equipment, but of a whole system that will work with us to achieve our goals, that each member of the Quorum team has had extensive research experience of their own, and this is truly a defining quality of Quorum. We have been extremely happy with the two systems that we purchased from Quorum, which have enabled us to perform very elegant experiments, especially at the single cell level. Furthermore, we have been so impressed by the service and support that we have received from Quorum and their reps, who are always available, for either minor questions or more complicated issues - they either walk you through a situation, or they come right to you to help solve any issues that arise. Our experience thus far with Quorum, their staff and their products has been great and we will look to Quorum for future needs and products. "

"We are happy with Quorum’s fast responses and adaptability to customer needs.
The LCI system is well designed and constructed. Its performance is comparable to other systems with a similar design but its cost is substantially less. The price/performance is thus excellent."
