Great results, I recommend the CytoSmart Omni device to everyone working in cell culture.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Wound Healing, Dermatology, Cosmetics, Live tissue and cell imaging, Pulmonary fibrosis

"CytoSmart Omni device is the device to have in every lab! The software is very friendly, and the device is very easy to handle. You can get online images and can follow your cells at any time from everywhere. At PKDERM we use the Omni device in wound healing testing using the scratch test with Ibidi inserts. We got fantastic results and our partners and clients were very satisfied, especially when they can watch the movie about how the wound is recovered after applying their products!"

Easy to handle, great results!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Live cell imaging

"The Omni allows to image cells over several days up to weeks and so learn a lot of new facts about their behaviour. The microscope can be placed in an incubator and the medium can be changed inbetween without impairing imaging. Therefore no effects concerning the change of enviromental conditions are observed. This is very important for our research on osteoblast differentiation, a process which can take up to five weeks. The microscope is very easy to handle and to control from outside the incubator. And you can always count on the people from Cytosmart for technical support."

Amazing for long term imaging of whole wells and plates!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Long term live imaging

"Very easy product to use. Does require a bit of setup, but the company sends out a representative to help with this. Also, they ask what I want to use the device for and really tailor the experience. Love that it can be used inside an incubator as I had trouble with long term imaging with on stage incubators for big microscopes. Also, don't need to worry about fluctuations in temperature and oxygen percentages and deal with oxygen tanks. The confluency data is very useful and produces graphs ready for you to use. Maybe have more options for well/plates to be able to scan."

Useful tool that allows for fast progression.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Monitoring cell growth

"Compact and nicely-designed piece of equipment. Very straightforward to use in terms of hardware and software."

Review date: 19 May 2020 | CytoSMART Omni

The CytoSMART Omni automatically scans complete well surface areas and instantly stitches the images to give users a complete overview of cell coverage. Integrated image analysis algorithms can process large quantities of image data. Image analysis can be used to extract valuable information from time-lapse videos. Data collection using video monitoring allows users to capture changes within samples and compare the rate of change between samples.

With Omni you can:

  • Pinpoint important events in the progression of the cell culture from experiment to experiment. 
  • Uncover attachment and detachment rates.
  • Evaluate events like cell death and compare growth rates.
  • Investigate and compare parameters like confluence, area infiltration and growth rate.


The CytoSMART Omni is highly flexible and is compatible to any transparent vessel that is lower than 55 mm. All vessels with a surface area smaller than 99*131 mm can be imaged in full. To ensure the proper environmental conditions, users can place the compact CytoSMART Omni inside any standard cell culture incubator. The smooth curvatures of the CytoSMART Omni platform ensures minimal airflow disturbance. This ensures that your samples stay in their desired, homogeneous environment throughout the entire experiment.

The CytoSMART Omni generates 6500 images at cell level detail; 10X magnification, 6 minutes for a full plate. These images are automatically stitched and provide a complete overview of the entire vessel that is used during assays and culturing.

CytoSMART Omni:

  • Label-free cellular assays
  • Time-lapse videos
  • Whole well surfaces
