A Bacterial Detector that delivers in minutes.
“Cytecom’s technology significantly reduces our labour costs, accelerating development of our antibacterial technology”
- Stephanie Lesage, CEO, Oxford Silk Phage.
The CyteCount is a rapid bacterial detector that relies on bacterial electrophysiology to detect living cells.
The device aims to replace the need for mountains of agar plates with a simple consumable system and an intuitive interface.
Antibiotics, Phages, UV-irradiation and heat. Across a range of species, the CyteCount has already detected the differences between bacterial cell populations treated with these conditions. Ready to go out of the box, with highly customisable settings, the CyteCount can be tailored to demands of the most specialist requirements.
See Applications for a range of examples.
COMPACT & PORTABLE
The CyteCount is completely portable, with a compact design profile and 10 hour battery life. Results that would typically require an entire lab can be generated from a device the size of a shoebox.
FROM SAMPLE TO RESULT IN < 1 HOUR
No need for hours of agar plating. The CyteCount allows the vitality of bacterial culture to be determined in less than an hour.
The CyteCount software has been designed with the user in mind. Run CyteCount tests at the press of a button. No faff required.
Our flexible pricing model allows CyteCount usage to fit well within a range of budgets. From PhD consumables to large scale industrial testing.
