Capture cellular behavior using live-cell imaging
Being able to monitor cell cultures over time, provides great insight in their dynamics and function. Live cell imaging microscopes open up novel and exciting avenues, to study cell health, viability, colony formation, migration and cellular responses to external factors.
To help researchers in life sciences to continue improving their understanding of cellular processes, CytoSMART Technologies has developed an automated bright-field lab microscope that visualizes complete culture vessels and operates from inside standard CO2-incubators. Perform kinetic assays that capture cellular behavior for days or even weeks at a time.
Continuous imaging provides real-time insight into cellular processes
Perform kinetic assays over the course of days or even weeks.
Pinpoint important events in the progression of the cell culture from experiment to experiment. Uncover attachment and detachment rates, evaluate events like cell death and compare growth rates. Data collection using video monitoring allows users to capture changes within samples and compare the rate of change between samples.
Complete overview of sample heterogeneity
Achieved by automated full plate scanning and image stitching
Manual handling and cell seeding can cause a variable density distribution within culture vessels. Randomly selecting several areas of interest or tile scanning is common practice to overcome that issue, however this is either time-consuming to set-up or to post-process. The CytoSMART Omni automatically scans complete well surface areas and instantly stitches these images to give users a complete overview of cell coverage.
