CytoSMART Technologies introduces automated organoid counter
CytoSMART Technologies has launched an automated organoid counter. The software application detects organoids using bright-field image analysis and runs on the Corning Cell Counter, a CytoSMART product.
Manually counting organoids is a routine part of laboratory operations, but is time consuming and user dependent. To overcome these issues CytoSMART has introduced this organoid counting application.
Joffry Maltha, CEO at CytoSMART Technologies, explained: “The 3D cellular structures that are formed in organoids have great potential in drug discovery and developmental biology. This has fuelled 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 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.”
