Product Overview

Discontinuation notice: This product has been discontinued as of 31 Dec, 2019. Please visit Cytosmart Technologies BV for purchase and continued support.


The CytoSMARTTM 2 System is an easy-to-use and affordable live cell imaging and monitoring system. It is designed for bright-field live cell imagingin order to run applications such as general cell culture monitoring, documentation, and scratch/migration assays, which require a larger field of view (2.4 x 1.4 mm).

The CytoSMARTTM 2 System consists of a mini-microscope, the CytoSMARTTM 2 Device (roughly the size of a cell culture plate). The CytoSMARTTM 2 Device is operated through a tablet that communicates with the CytoSMARTTM Connect Cloud Service. Capturing images and recording time-lapse videos of cell cultures are performed with the CytoSMARTTM App. Monitoring cell cultures outside of the lab can be done via smart phone, tablet, or computer, with the integrated cloud function. Data transfer to the cloud, via Wifi, Ethernet, as well as offline operation, allows for flexible data recording and storage in different network environments.


The CytoSMARTTM System is available in two configurations:

  • CytoSMARTTM 2 System (AACS-1003): CytoSMARTTM 2 Device with tablet and a two-year CytoSMARTTM Connect Cloud Service included. The CytoSMARTTM 2 System involves annual renewals of the CytoSMARTTM Connect Cloud Service (AWCS-1001) after two years. 
  • CytoSMARTTM 2 FR System (AACS-1004): CytoSMARTTM 2 Device with tablet and a lifespan CytoSMARTTM Connect Cloud Service


How to renew my CytoSMARTTM Connect Cloud Service?
