The CytoSMART™ 2 system features an advanced optical system and more powerful camera unit than the CytoSMART, which enables researchers to capture higher-resolution images of their cell cultures. Images taken can be digitally enlarged two-fold to display more cellular detail for enhanced monitoring of cell cultures, migration assays, and differentiation experiments. Since fluctuations in the surrounding environment can affect cellular behavior, capturing images from inside the incubator with the CytoSMART 2 Device allows the cells to be exposed to constant conditions throughout the duration of an experiment. Images taken are transmitted to the CytoSMART Connect Cloud. This allows researchers to view their cells and download images to a computer, tablet, or smartphone at any time and from any location.
