CellDrop™ Cell Counters
CellDrop Automated Cell Countersfeature patented DirectPipette™ Technology to eliminate plastic slides andcumbersome hemocytometers from routine cell counting. Featuring dualfluorescence and brightfield optics, variable height sample chamber, and powerful,easy-to-use analysis software, the CellDrop Cell Counters enables the fastestcell counts, viability assessment, and GFP transfection efficiency measurementsacross the widest range of cell density, cell type and application.
The CellDrop Series brings thefamiliar Load, Measure & Wipe Clean functionality of microvolume spectrophotometersto cell counting. Traditional plastic slides or glass hemocytometers arereplaced by two permanent optical sapphire surfaces. These are positionedparallel to one another by a calibration-free, high-precision mechanism,forming a chamber of precisely defined height. 10µL of cell suspension ispipetted into the chamber, analyzed and simply wiped away with a dry laboratorywipe. The powerful live-view image allows instant verification that cleaninghas been successful.
Accurate Across the Widest Rangeof Cell Size and Density
Using conventional countingmethods, samples with high or low cell densities require time consumingdilution or concentration steps. The variable height chamber of the CellDropCell Counters adjusts chamber depth automatically, delivering the most accuratecounts over the widest cell densities – 7 x 102 to 2.5 x 107.Chamber height can also be adjusted to accommodate almost any cell with adiameter range of 4 to 400µm.
Designed by life scientists, the CellDropEasyApps®Software exceeds thefunctionality of high cost cell counters while delivering the ease of use ofsimpler systems. EasyApps combines with a high definition, 7″ touchscreeninterface to give error-free operation with sample loading to data exporting inseconds. Pre-installed with a range of common applications for one-touchanalysis of assays such as Brightfield, Trypan blue, AO/PI, GFP and Yeast andthe ability to create custom methods makes the CellDrop a flexible workhorsefor the busy, multi-user lab.
