An Automated Cell Counting Superhero – All in the Palm of Your Hand

Tired of manual cell counting? Let's face it, manual cell counting is tedious. When your day is filled with culturing many cell lines at one time, that's hours of your day just to get the data you need.

I know what you’re thinking, "You're telling me my hours hunched over a microscope counting cells may not even be producing reliable data?!" Yup. You need a superhero. "So what are my options?" Well, what if there were a powerful superhero that could take a small [...]

Craft brewers enhance brewing process and product taste using the Cellometer X1 and X2 instruments

Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado has introduced a Cellometer to their brewing process, improving their procedures, as well as the product’s taste and quality. The Cellometer is employed as a quality control check over the yeast cells inside the facility’s fermenters. Making sure the yeast cells fermenting the beer are healthy and enzymatically active ensures a high quality product, with fewer mutated and/or dying cells that can negatively affect the beer’s flavor. Adam, the owner  of Avery Brewing Co. says that the Cellometer has “changed the way we made beer and it also changed the way our beer tastes”.   Watch this episode of [...]
