CytoSMART Omni

A real revolution in live-cell imaging is here!

Our smartest engineers have developed a whole new product. A product that can scan and analyze up to 96 wells at the same time. Full plate analysis within less than 5 minutes!

Live-cell imaging of a 96-well plate within 5 minutes.

The world’s smallest live-cell imager

The CytoSMART Omni is the smallest automated live-cell imager that fits inside a standard cell culture incubator. It can acquire a bright-field scan of an entire well plate within 5 minutes and provides instant confluency analysis of your cultures.

The CytoSMART Omni is:​
Fast – Faster than any automated live-cell imager ever seen
Flexible – Any type of culture vessel that fits within 94 x 132 mm can be scanned
Compact – It fits in any cell culture incubator

The world’s fastest live-cell imager

The CytoSMART Omni can acquire a bright-field scan of 94 x 132 mm within 5 minutes. Not only the scan is fast, setting up your experiment is also done within a few minutes, after which the CytoSMART Omni does the work for you. This allows you to quickly set up your experiment and walk away, so you can spend your precious time on data analysis instead of obtaining data.​


The large optical window of the CytoSMART Omni enables you to easily visualize any well plate, culture flask, petri dish, microfluidic chip or other culture vessel. As long as it fits within the scan area and is lower than 55 mm because of the space between the optical window and the light arc. You can simply monitor the health of the cells in your flask/dishes, or conduct a wide variety of assays in a 96-well plate.

Optimum culture conditions​

The CytoSMART Omni is so compact, it easily fits inside any cell culture incubator. This enables you to perform your experiment at the optimum culture conditions for your cells. The CytoSMART Omni can even scan your samples cultured inside a hypoxia incubator. Your colleagues will like this device too, since it is so compact that there is still space left in the incubator for their cell cultures.

Higher accuracy​

The large area scan acquired by the CytoSMART Omni, is captured by moving the optics instead of the sample. The Omni hardware is designed to make the scanning process highly repeatable, increasing the accuracy of your time lapse data. It also enables you to perform experiments with sensitive or non-adherent cells, since your cells are undisturbed throughout the duration of the experiment.​

Easy to use​

The intuitive Omni app allows anyone in your lab to use the CytoSMART Omni without extensive training. Just place the device inside your cell culture incubator, connect it to a computer and start the Omni app. Place your culture vessel on the optical window of the Omni, focus, set the time interval and you are ready to start your experiment.

Instant confluency analysis​

The Omni app generates a stitched image of the entire scanned area. When using well plates, you can also choose to generate stitched images for each well separately. Our integrated analysis software automatically analyzes the confluency (as indicated by the green overlay in (a.) at several time points (b.) for all wells (c.).


Using the integrated confluency analysis software, you can perform apoptosis, proliferation and cytotoxicity experiments in just a few clicks. Using commercially available image analysis programs (e.g. Matlab, ImageJ, Python) you can use the images obtained with the CytoSMART Omni for applications such as migration, colony picking, neurite formation and angiogenesis.
