A compact, inverted mini-microscope, CytoSMART™ Lux2 makes brightfield live-cell imaging easy and affordable. It is used for confluence and assay experiments in many different types of laboratories, such as:
- Pharmacological research
- Regenerative medicine
- Tissue engineering
- Routine cell culture
No training is necessary to use CytoSMART™ Lux2 and it is very easy to set up. As well as being a cost-effective analytical tool bringing live cell imaging to every lab, it is perfect for use in a Whitley Hypoxystation.
Using a conventional microscope equipped with an incubator box can present a challenge to maintaining cells in a healthy state whilst imaging them. Being able to carry out the imaging in physiologically relevant conditions assures that cells are not being stressed or damaged and that the introduction of atmospheric oxygen does not affect experimental results. The ability to use CytoSMART™ Lux2 inside a Whitley Hypoxystation provides accurate, stable, repeatable control of temperature, oxygen, carbon dioxide and relative humidity. Tight control of environmental parameters is one of the most critical factors determining the success or failure of live cell imaging experiments.
Easy Data Storage
CytoSMART™ Lux2 can be set to record images at specific intervals (between 5 – 60 minutes) for minutes, hours and days. In fact, it is one of the few systems that can run for weeks!
Access Anytime, Anywhere
CytoSMART™ Cloud data storage and cloud-based image analysis allows you to access your recording and view the cell culture in almost real-time from anywhere. You can also download data such as images and time-lapse video for further processing on a PC, laptop, mobile or tablet.
CytoSMART™ Lux2’s cloud-based solution provides you with access to the following applications whenever and wherever you need them:
- Monitor cell division
- Monitor cell growth and confluence
- Analyse cell migration and wound healing (scratch assays)
- Monitor colony formulation
- Time lapse imaging
- Study chemotaxis
- Study cells cultured inside microfluidic devices
- Study stem cell differentiation
- Cell culture QC
