Who is CytoSMART Technologies?
CytoSMART is a company founded in 2012 at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, which has developed innovative automated cell counter and live cell culture imaging devices in order to assist in research. Our innovative devices combine modern day technology with custom built software to greatly enhance the cell culture monitoring process, reducing stress, effort required and increasing efficiency.
Why are the prices of CytoSMART so low?
CytoSMART was born from the struggles of researchers facing problems with real-time monitoring of cell culture and the realization that current devices were unnecessarily complex and expensive. By incorporating state of the art technologies from multiple fields, CytoSMART created specific fit for purpose and affordable products for any researcher.
