CytoSMART Technologies develops automated organoid counter

July 29, 2020
The automated organoid counter application detects organoids using bright-field image analysis.

Manually counting organoids is a routine part of laboratory operations, but is time-consuming and user-dependent. Recognizing this, CytoSMART Technologies (Eindhoven, Netherlands) has introduced an automated organoid counter application that detects organoids using bright-field image analysis and runs on the companys Corning Cell Counter.

The 3D cellular structures that are formed in organoids have great potential in drug discovery and developmental biology, says Joffry Maltha, CEO at CytoSMART Technologies. 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 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.

The organoid counter features a cloud-based image analysis algorithm and works with a common reusable glass hemocytometer, with no consumables required. Its software allows for data gating and image selection for statistical analysis.
