"我们的目标是通过为研究人员提供远程视频访问以评估他们的细胞培养状况，来协助研究人员最大程度地减少在高污染实验室中花费的时间。 视频数据可用于远程监控细胞病变的作用，这样研究人员便可以知道何时是正确的时间来收集病毒." - CytoSMART Technologies首席执行官Joffry Maltha
"This compact microscope allows us to watch SARS-CoV-2 infected cell cultures live while off site. Herewith we can limit short trips to the lab and save productive gear including the scarce FFP2 mask."
"Weekends got a lot less stressful being able to monitor the cells on distance and getting alarms which worked great. We did look at different solutions before but the Lux2 is perfect in size, price range and all."
"Your donation has made it possible for our researchers to work in a safer environment and also saves then much time, allowing them to fully concentration in their research against COVID-19."
CytoSMART Lux2 in action
Monitoring the cytopathic effect of the SARS-CoV-2 on VeroE6 cell culture
Zoltan Kis from the National Public Health Center (NNK) in Hungary used the CytoSMART Lux2 live-cell imager to monitor the cytopathic effect of the SARS-CoV-2 on VeroE6 cell culture.

Frequently Asked Questions
The CytoSMART Lux2 remote functionality runs on cloud-based software. In this cloud-environment the images are stored and can be accessed using user-specific login details. Next to data storage, image analysis algorithms can be run to quantify confluence and cell migration. Labs that apply for the CytoSMART Lux2 get a free, 2-year licence for this software.
