On the CytoSMART™ Connect Project Page you can now monitor your cell culture remotely and in approximately real-time with your computer or smart phone etc. In addition, the cell confluency and the temperature within the incubator are reported. 
  As soon as you have stopped the recording all data can be downloaded from the CytoSMART™ Connect Project Page, such as images (.jpg files), time-lapse video (.avi files) or temperature and confluency (.csv files for further processing in Excel).
