CytoSMART Technologies has announced the release of its first fluorescence live-cell imager, the CytoSMART Lux3 FL.C.

FREMONT, CA: CytoSMART Technologies announces its first fluorescence live-cell imager. The CytoSMART Lux3 FL is a live-cell imaging microscope armed with one brightfield and two fluorescent channels (green and red). The device allows researchers to unravel cellular processes in real-time while the cells are kept in a controlled environment inside a standard cell culture incubator. CytoSMARTs first fluorescence live-cell imager lets .0users to track dynamic cellular processes with high specificity by taking high-quality images to create real-time time-lapse movies.

Fluorescent labeling is used as an end-point measurement. However, time-lapse imaging of live cells can provide much more information about biological processes. By leveraging automated imaging at regular time intervals, the fluorescent data's temporal resolution is increased, resulting in relevant data about the cellular processes. In this way, researchers can determine if a certain process had occurred and when it occurred, and at what speed. CytoSMART’S  customers have been asking to develop a small and easy-to-use microscope with integrated image analysis of brightfield and fluorescence data.

The features and benefits of the CytoSMART Lux3 FL include Integrated image analysis of brightfield and fluorescence area, Time-lapse movies to investigate the development of cellular processes, an Expanded number of variables researchers can analyze in their cell culture using green and red fluorescence, remote data access via the CytoSMART Cloud with a smartphone, tablet, or laptop outside the lab, and portable, easy-to-use and incubator friendly live-cell imager.

CytoSMART Technologies are experts in the development and manufactures of intelligent microscope systems for life science labs. The company is a team of biologists and engineers convinced that a new generation of miniaturized microscopes, based on artificial intelligence for image analysis, would enable biologists to make discoveries more efficiently and at Scale. In 2018 CytoSMART was selected by Microsoft for its Scale Up program. CytoSMARTs microscopy solutions are leveraged in over a thousand laboratories around the world.
