28 July 2020, Eindhoven, The Netherlands - CytoSMART Technologies today announced the launch of an automated organoid counter. The software application detects organoids using brightfield image analysis and runs on the Corning® Cell Counter, a CytoSMART product.
Said Joffry Maltha, CEO at CytoSMART Technologies: “The 3D cellular structures that are formed in organoids have great potential in drug discovery and developmental biology. This has fueled the ever-growing interest in culturing new sub-types of organoids and optimization of current protocols. Growing organoids does, however, take a substantial amount of time and skill. We believe that the implementation of an automated solution for organoid counting can really speed up day-to-day work in the lab and is a logical step towards further implementation of organoids in cell culture-based research.”
Manually counting organoids is a routine part of laboratory operations but is time-consuming and user-dependent. To overcome these issues CytoSMART has introduced an organoid counting application – a new, powerful, and easy-to-use software application that enables organoid counting with the Corning® Cell Counter.
The main features and benefits of the CytoSMART Organoid Counter are:
- Fast & Accurate - thanks to its cloud-based image analysis algorithm
- Low-cost – works with a common reusable glass hemocytometer. No consumables required
- Precise – software allows for data gating and image selection for statistical analysis
