Cell Monitoring System

CytoRek mini

If you observe cells in a CO2 incubator, you can perform time-lapse photography for a long time.


  • There is no need to remove cells from the CO2 incubator for observation.
  • You can make a time-lapse movie using the captured images.
  • You can count the number of cells from the captured image.
  • You can measure the size of the cell from the captured image.
  • There is no effect on the culture environment of the CO2 incubator.
  • It can also be used for cell quality control purposes.
  • You can observe cell division and proliferation.
  • It is used in a wide range of fields such as universities, pharmaceuticals, and regenerative medicine.
  • Since a phase contrast microscope is installed, even transparent cells can be clearly seen.
