Next Generation Live Cell Imaging Analysis System

Eindhoven, Netherlands – CytoSMART Technologies, an Axion Bio company, announced the launch of the CytoSMART Omni FL, a next-generation live cell imaging analysis system incorporating for the first time red and green fluorescence channels into its line of CytoSMART Omni products. This advancement reflects the company’s continued commitment to providing accessible, high-quality live cell imaging to every cell biology laboratory and provides an innovative platform for researchers in stem cell biology, immuno-oncology, virology , toxicology, neurology and other fields.

Joffry Maltha, CEO of CytoSMART Technologies, said, “We are very pleased to launch a fluorescence version of the popular CytoSMART Omni brightfield live cell imager. The new CytoSMART Omni FL takes research to another level and allows scientists to have a better understanding of their experiments. while reducing the time spent on manual work. This breakthrough represents the next big step in our strategy of continuous product line innovation designed to accelerate scientific discovery and drug development.

Live cell fluorescence microscopy is a powerful tool with wide applications in biological research. Using fluorescent tags, dyes, and other methods to label and examine molecules of interest, imaging provides a critical window into cell physiology and function over time and enables the creation of time-lapse videos of high quality to track complex cellular processes. Featuring an innovative design that works efficiently in a cell culture incubator, universal compatibility with any transparent culture vessel, and AI-based analysis with user-friendly data storage solutions, the Low-maintenance CytoSMART Omni FL overcomes the limitations of other imaging platforms and allows for plug-and-play experimentation right out of the box. Applications of live cell fluorescence imaging include assessment of cell health and viability, assessment of wound healing and colony formation, study of transfection efficiency and the study of complex culture models such as co-cultures and 3D organoids.

According to Axion President and CEO, Tom O’Brien, “CytoSMART has reinvented the microscope, designing powerful imaging systems that fit comfortably into a standard incubator. While other imaging systems may miss small changes or rare cells or interest, the CytoSMART Omni continuously captures the entire culture surface for a more complete picture. The launch of the Omni FL is another step forward in our mission to provide customers with high-quality instruments and powerful software that rapidly advance live cell research, as well as the development of cell and gene therapy. “
