Scientific Company News

Lonza has announced the launch of an easy-to-use and affordable live cell imaging system that offers automated functionality and other key benefits.

The CytoSMART system lets users take time-lapse videos and images of their cell culture without needing to manually inspect their cells, with this data then being transmitted into the cloud and made viewable online.

“Lonza has launched CytoSMART, an easy-to-use and affordable new live cell imaging system.“

Other key features include its ability to report ongoing cell confluency via a graphical readout and its automatic email alert functionality, which can be set to inform the user when key milestones are reached.

Herbert Mueller-Hartmann, head of research and development at Lonza Bioscience Solutions, said: "Researchers that have tested the CytoSMART prototype have used it for a variety of different applications, such as cell culture monitoring and documentation, migration and scratch assays and cell culture standardisation."

This new offering is being launched as part of a global distribution agreement with CytoMate Technologies. It is hoped that Lonza's existing sales, marketing and distribution channels will help the product to achieve rapid market penetration.
