PAULA, how are my cells today?

Smart Cell Imager PAULA


Place PAULA in an incubator and guide the 2 cables through a feedthrough opening, normally found at the back. If your incubator does not have such an opening, then you can also pass the cables through the door’s opening.

For this case, you can use a travel router to create a network for PAULA. Most of the time, a travel router is country specific. Please refer to the router’s manual for the setup.

You can connect a touch monitor (alternatively, a monitor, keyboard, and mouse) and control PAULA easily in this way.

Yes, this is possible. Simply use a touch monitor (or alternatively a monitor, keyboard, and mouse) to control the digital imager. You do not need to connect to a LAN at all.

You can use the infrastructure of your tablet (e.g., AirDrop, email, iCLOUD drive, etc.) or your local area network (servers). In addition, you can save data on a USB stick. Please contact your local IT department if you have questions about policies concerning network security.

You can setup to receive notifications via email, if desired.

Use your virtual private network (VPN) client to access the network PAULA is connected to.

Yes. Administrators, users, and guests have different levels of access.

No. PAULA does not require alignment by the user. You can simply switch between fluorescence and phase contrast without doing any manual alignments.

PAULA is very easy to clean. We recommend 70% isopropyl alcohol or equivalent. The opening to the objective is sealed, so no liquid (e.g. media) can get in. All surfaces are easy to access and clean.

Yes. However, we still recommend to clean PAULA (except the NUC PC) with 70% isopropyl alcohol or equivalent.
