What do you need when you count cells manually with a microscope and hemacytometer?

...a neck massage! There's a new article out from Biocompare entitled "Cell Counts and More" - and we have to give joke credit to them. We think it's a pretty good one, and accurate, just like our instruments. One of our customers, Tiffany Sidwell, of UCLA Immunogenetics Center, even provided some feedback on the very topic last year. Tiffany shared: "Counting cells daily on the microscope was very bad for my occipital joints and muscles. Since using the Cellometer Auto 2000, I no longer have neck pain when counting cells. Thank you Nexcelom!" There are many, many benefits associated with [...]

What’s “hoppening” in the Craft Brewing Industry?

Based on an article published by NPR this week, the Craft Brewing Industry is alive and well, with over 5,000 craft brewers in operation last year.  And for as many craft breweries that are out there, there are as many different ways to rank them!  The Brewers Association will rank by sales and production;  Vinepair has a map displaying the number of breweries by state; Thrillist seems to have organized the ranks based on their opinion of the offerings; Travel + Leisure positions the beer offerings with the city's appeal.

We think STEM is important – and we’re doing something about it.

STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - is vital to our future. At present, our students are not stacking up with the other developed countries. We understand the value and importance of encouraging students to explore these STEM fields, and consider a career in a STEM. For that reason, we created a package specifically designed with high schools, colleges and universities in mind. It's called our Teaching Lab - and it has everything a teacher needs to bring automated cell counting technology into their classrooms and labs at a discounted price. The Cellometer Mini and Cellometer Auto 1000 are [...]

Is Automated Counting Right for You?

Our founder, Dr. Jean Qiu, developed the Cellometer Auto T4 in 2005 after receiving a request for such an instrument from a customer at NIH, and we officially launched it at AACR 2006.  As we come up on the 10 year anniversary of the original launch of our first automated cell counter it got us thinking. When we created the first automated cell counter, we created the market for such devices and we were alone in the equipment space for 2-3 years before any other company came out with competitive products. (Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?)  It was [...]
