Get Flow Results without Flow Cytometry

Cellometer Vision CBA Image Cytometry System Incorporation of FCS Express 4 Software (De Novo Software) into the Vision CBA Analysis System has enabled users to conduct image-based analysis of cell-based assays requiring enhanced gating for the most accurate, reliable, and reproducible results. Side-by-side comparison of results for apoptosis, cell cycle, mitochondrial potential, autophagy, ABC transporter assays, aggresome detection, CD4+ / CD8+ immunophenotyping, and other assays has shown Cellometer image-based analysis results to be comparable to flow cytometry. Flow core labs can utilize the Vision CBA instrument to pre-screen samples prior to sorting and flow cytometry analysis and to [...]

Ten Advantages of Cellometer Automated Cell Counting

1. Streamline the QC Process  Measure cell concentration and viability for multiple sample types using one method! No need to perform RBCs lysis for Clinical Samples: Bone Marrow, Cord Blood, Peripheral Blood, Mobilized Peripheral Blood, Tissue Digests Samples following cryopreservation Samples following density gradient separation Samples following magnetic separation (CD56+, CD34+) Cultured cells 2. Improve Accuracy of QC Results  Dual-fluorescence counting eliminates interference from red blood cells, platelets, and debris 3. Reduce Testing Time  Automated counting is 10x faster than manual counting 4. Reduce Errors  Automated counting eliminates manual counting, calculation, and recording errors 5. Reduce Inter-Operator Variability  Pre-set analysis parameters [...]

Easily Transition from Manual Cell Counting to Automated Cell Counting

Cellometer Auto 2000 Cell Viability Counter When performed correctly, correlation studies make it easy to transition from manual counting to Cellometer automated cell counting. Because Cellometer Auto 2000 and Cellomether Vision utilize a dual-fluorescence detection system, fresh blood and bone marrow samples can be analyzed for total nucleated cell concentration and viability without lysing, thus simplifying the testing process and improving the accuracy and consistency of test results. The same method can be used to analyze both fresh and processed samples or users can switch to a more traditional trypan blue method following magnetic separation. Figure 1. [...]

10 Questions to Ask Before Purchasing an Automated Cell Counter

Ten Questions to Ask Before Purchasing an Automated Cell Counter Believe it or not, all cell counters are not created equally. Ask a colleague with a handheld counter that sits in a drawer or a bench-top cell counter that acts as a paperweight and they will tell you that some cell counters don’t work as expected. Before purchasing an automated cell counter, ask the representative the following questions. Knowing these answers will help ensure that you purchase the right cell counter for your applications. […]

ViaStain™ Viability Dyes

ViaStain™ Viability Dyes Nexcelom offers several dyes for fluorescence viability determination. AO (acridine orange) is a nuclear staining dye used to identify and count nucleated cells in a heterogeneous cell population. PI (propidium iodide) is a nuclear staining dye that only enters cells with compromised membranes. It is used to identify dead nucleated cells. AO/PI is a mixture of acridine orange and propidium iodide nuclear staining dyes. The dye mixture can be used with the Cellometer Auto 2000 and Cellometer Vision dual-fluorescence instruments to accurately count live and dead nucleated cells within heterogeneous samples containing non-nucleated cells, such as red [...]
