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. Not only that, the manual process can be riddled with judgment errors, miscounts, and user-to-user variability. 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 [...]

Cellometer on Tap – Yeast Cell Counting for Breweries

How many brewers does it take to count yeast? This sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. In truth, cell counting is really simple but labor intensive & extremely time-consuming. With a Nexcelom Cellometer X2 – it only takes one click & 30 seconds per sample! Cellometer has earned a reputation as the “go to” cell counter for breweries seeking accurate yeast counts, viability & vitality. Just look at the map comparing the distribution of Nexcelom’s Cellometer automated yeast counters and the Top 50 breweries in the US. Data based on beer sales volume adapted from Brewery Association (BA) [...]

Poster: High-throughput immune complex analysis method for CAR T cell-mediated cytotoxicity using the Celigo Image Cytometer

Download our Poster Abstract: Cancer immunotherapy has been gaining momentum in the field of cancer research. Specifically, Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell technology have introduced new methods to combat cancer. Direct cell-mediated cytotoxicity assays are required to assess the killing capability of the engineered CAR T cells. Traditionally, these assays are conducted by measuring the amount of released Chromium, calcein AM, or LDH molecules after the target cancer cells are killed with CAR T cells. These methods require a large amount of target cells which may not be ideal when working with donor primary samples. Additionally, they cannot [...]

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 [...]
