Miniature microscope for time-lapse cell imaging

Life sciences researchers are gathering more and more information on cellular mechanisms and cell and tissue culture techniques. Understanding cell culture behavior and evaluating cellular health requires extensive training and experience. Processes like cell subculturing, growth rates and nutrition depletion require an experts intuition and trial-and-error based optimization. To communicate these findings is not straightforward. Personal teaching is ideal, but in many cases not manageable. As such video monitoring of cell cultures can be highly beneficial to showcase the progression of cell cultures in an intuitive manner.

The CytoSMART Lux2 provides an easy and cost-effective solution for time-lapse imaging. Monitor cell proliferation, motility and morphology for hours up to weeks at a time. The CytoSMART Lux2 is a compact inverted lab microscope for bright-field live cell imaging. It works from inside any standard CO2-incubator and can be used in routine cell culture processes.
