CytoSMART Technologies is an innovator in kinetic live-cell imaging. To continue improving the understanding of cellular processes, CytoSMARTTM has developed automated bright-field microscopes that visualize culture vessels and operate from inside standard CO2-incubators. Perform kinetic assays that capture cellular behaviour for days or even weeks at a time.
Images and movies contain many cellular features, which can be extracted using image analysis. However, this can be tedious and time-consuming. CytoSMART's integrated image analysis algorithms can help in making sense of large quantities of imaging data. All results are remotely accessible in the CytoSMARTTM Cloud, therefore, unnecessary lab visits can be skipped. Quantify features such as confluency, area infiltration and colony formation. CytoSMART help you visualize your cells in the passage of time and investigate processes as they are unfolding.
Cell cultures are dynamic model systems and being able to monitor cells over time, provides great insight in their function. Characterization of cellular behaviour is not just a goal on itself, but is essential for research in drug development, regenerative therapies and tissue engineering. The ability to create time-lapse videos of cell cultures opens up novel and exciting avenues, to study cell health and viability, cytotoxicity, migration and cellular responses to external factors.
