  • 捐赠活细胞成像仪 助力COVID-19研究

CytoSMART Technologies将向全球生物安全实验室研究人员捐赠100台Lux2活细胞成像系统。致力于对抗COVID-19的实验室将从这项计划中受益,因为CytoSMART旨在减少研究人员目前在控制该病的重要研究项目上面临的繁重工作量。

"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

根据 CDCWHO 的指南,应在BSL-3实验室中进行COVID-19的分离和鉴定。在3级和4级生物安全实验室(BSL3或BSL4)中进行研究意味着要在高度受控的区域内工作。必须采取许多预防措施,以确保研究人员的安全并帮助防止正在研究的疾病在实验室外传播。 拆卸和更换防护服和设备可能既耗时又昂贵,因此理想情况下,仅在绝对必要时才进入实验室。

"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.
