Experience our new CytoSMART™ System – an easy-to-use and affordable live cell imaging system.Live Cell Imaging – The Smart Way
The system consists of a mini-microscope, the CytoSMART™ Device (roughly the size of a cell culture plate), and an accompanying tablet which is linked to the device and can be fixed outside the incubator. With the CytoSMART™ Connect Cloud Service you can view your images and create time-lapse movies of your cell culture. As a cloud-based system, it enables you to access and download your cell culture data from any browser-capable system, whether it is your computer, laptop, smartphone or your personal tablet device. With the CytoSMART™ System your cells can remain in their defined conditions in the incubator, while you monitor the culture remotely online. Moreover, you can set automatic alerts – meaning you only need to physically tend to your cells once they have reached a certain confluency.
Applications for the CytoSMART™ System
With the CytoSMART™ System, both cell culture monitoring and the morphological read-out of a multitude of cell-based assays become routine tasks that can be performed without being physically present at the cell culture hood. The system also enables you to record images or time-lapse videos of your cell culture.
- Migration assay, e.g. scratch assays – Automatic photo/video documentation
- Stem cell culture documentation – Remote monitoring under hypoxic cell culture and GMP conditions or of iPSC reprogramming
- Cell culture standardization – Automatic alerts for confluency, recording of cell growth curves and screening of culture media and growth factors
