CyMap CyMap was designed make use of very simple, "optics free" imaging to monitor cells in culture. It is small enough to be used in an incubator, and with suitable software can be used to quantify cell number, density and confluency. We own a patent on this technology and it won an Technology and Innovation award external link in 2009. We are currently actively working on software for different solutions. CyMap
