Through the grant, applicants can apply for either a Lux2, Lux3 FL, or an Omni live-cell imaging microscope, which they will have access to for 4-18 months
CytoSMART Technologies has opened applications for its research grant for Autumn 2021. The grant is an initiative designed to help motivated students and researchers improve their project's quality. The grant offers one of the company’s live-cell imaging devices to be used for research purposes for a specified period. The automated, incubator-friendly microscopes are suitable for monitoring cell cultures in any research topic that could benefit from live-cell imaging. The application period starts on September 6 and will last until October 15, 2021.
"We started this initiative at the beginning of 2021, and we never thought it could be as successful as it turned out to be. The number of applicants and the innovativeness of their research proposals were outstanding. Also, the fact that live-cell imaging devices can play such a valuable role in these projects, is an indescribable reward for all the efforts we have put into these systems. It’s such an honor to contribute to various life science fields from cardiovascular research to immunology and even groups working with organoids," said Kjell Steps, Account Manager at CytoSMART Technologies.
Through the grant, applicants can apply for either a Lux2, Lux3 FL, or an Omni live-cell imaging microscope, which they will have access to for 4-18 months. The applicant, who must be currently registered or employed at an educational or research institution, must also perform research that will benefit from real-time imaging devices. The successful applicant will be provided with necessary training to operate the device.
