CyMap in incubator CyMap

CyMap represents a fundamental rethink in the way biological cells are imaged. Simple hardware and clever software are used to derive images without using lenses. The device allows stress-free, long-term monitoring of cells to be performed. With the continued collaboration between The Gray Institute for Radiation Oncology and Biology (GIROB) at the University of Oxford, and Cancer Research Technology (CRT), CyMap's cheap, power-efficient, compact and simple-to-use design allows development of new diagnostic platforms and the introduction of imaging capability to products where microscopic imaging is not cost-effective. It has applications ranging from stem cell research and tissue engineering through to the clinic (patient-bedside) and diagnostic laboratory, whether in a hospital or in the Third world.
