CYTOSMART CytoSMART™ Lux2 digital microscope for live cell imaging, incl. Connect Lifespan license and type 2.0 A to mini-B USB cable

The CytoSMART Lux 2 is a compact inverted microscope for bright-field live cell imaging in situ, inside the HypoxyLab. The system operates at low voltage and is thus safe to use within the HypoxyLab (as well as regular CO2 incubators). Power comes from a USB port conveniently positioned within the HypoxyLab. Supports single images (jpg files), time-lapse videos (avi files) and confluency data (csv files), with optional cloud storage for access from any PC or mobile device.
