Nexcelom Bioscience LLC has introduced Cellometer Vision, a cell counter with multimode imaging analysis. The device improves throughput by automating tedious manual counting procedures. After a sample volume of 20 μl is pipetted into the disposable counting chamber, which is inserted into the instrument, the software determines the cell size, total cell count, and cell concentration and viability as well as fluorescence data. The system generates a comprehensive set of data, including histograms and scatter plots, and it can be used for cell assay applications such as monitoring GFP transfection rates, quantifying the presence of fluorescein isothiocyanate surface markers, directly counting white blood cells in whole blood, and measuring the concentration and sizes of adipocytes.
