In Nexcelom’s long line of automated cell counters, there is one instrument designed specifically with your budget in mind – the Cellometer Mini! As the lowest-cost cell counter on the market, it utilizes bright field imaging, and is perfect for any lab looking to achieve basic cell count, concentration and Trypan Blue viability of cultured cell lines and purified primary samples. It’s affordable, accurate, and small enough to fit in your purse or backpack! Need a little convincing?  Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our customers have to say:

Celloemter Mini Bright Field Cell Counter

“The Cellometer Mini is such a time saver compared to using the hemacytometer! We love it and use it all the time. It is easy for students and residents to use, which also saves us in training time.” – Southeast HSC

“The Cellometer Mini is incredibly rapid at counting cells. Even better, the software has a built-in calculator for determining dilutions. It speeds up our workflow.” – Baylor University

“The Cellometer is quick and convenient and I find the cell counts to be just as reliable as using a hemacytometer. My lab cultures several different cell lines and we save hours by substituting the Cellometer for the hemacytometer! I have trained my students in my cell lab to use the Cellometer and they now spend less time counting cells and have more time to do experiments!” – Wheeling Jesuit University

“I really appreciate the small footprint of the Cellometer Mini. It doesn’t take up much space and it is very easy to use. The guides provided make it a no-brainer!” – Leidos Biomedical Research


The Mini is user-friendly and fast, without sacrificing accuracy with its low cost. The instrument you want is obtainable on a budget!  Contact us if you are interested in a quote, scheduling a free in-lab demo, or speaking with a specialist.
