Count 24 Samples in Less than 2.5 Minutes

Cellaca MX

The automated cell counter that changes everything

Cellaca High-throughput Automated Cell Counter

Get your time back.

Skip the sign-up sheet and the long waits. Count 24 samples with trypan blue staining in 48 seconds. When imaging and analyzing with fluorescent viability dyes 24 samples are completed in 2.5 minutes. Get all those all-day, multi-scientist experiments done in 1.5 hours with one pair of hands.

With the new Cellaca MX Automated Cell Counter you can now count up to 24 samples in 48 seconds using trypan blue or in 2.5 minutes with fluorescence.

Your workflow will be streamlined and more efficient when you integrate the Cellaca MX with these capabilities:

  • Batch samples in 24 well microplates for cell count and viability
  • Analyze cell lines or primary cells like PBMCs, T cells and tumor digests
  • Maintain cell integrity and minimize sample depletion during processing
  • Incorporate robotics with API compatible instrument
  • No instrument fluidics to maintain

Analyze low-volume primary cell samples.

Cellaca MX only needs 25 μL of cells, so you can analyze tumor biopsy tissue, mouse splenocytes, tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and more.

Cellaca counted human PBMCs
Human PBMC sample stained with Acridine Orange/Propidium iodide (AO/PI) and imaged using brightfield and fluorescence on Cellaca MX.

Count only the cells you’re looking for.

Use brightfield to check viability. Use fluorescence when you need specific details on cell health – tissue debris and red blood cells won’t artificially change your count.

Brightfield and fluorescent images of PBMCs. In brightfield, white blood cells, platelets, and red blood cells are seen. Nuclear fluorescent staining using both green and red channels accurately identifies only the white blood cells.

Count once and done.

Cellaca MX results are highly reproducible and linear across a 2-log cell concentration range. You’ll also get consistent counts across systems, labs and users. That means you can run a sample once and know you’ve got the right result the first time.

Cellaca Dilution Factor Data
Serial dilution of Jurkat cells from 1.8E+07 to 1.8E+05 cells/mL analyzed on Cellaca MX. Counts were linear across the entire concentration range with CVs <2.4% for mean cell concentrations of 1.6E+07 cells/mL or higher, and <0.7% for 1.2E+07 cells/mL and below (n=9).

“The Cellaca MX has dramatically reduced sample processing time for our ex vivo preparations.  What used to take us 5 people and 7 hours, now takes us only 3 people and 4 hours to process the samples, count the cells and plate them for downstream assays.  Not only has the Cellaca MX saved us time and increased our efficiency, but it also has improved our sample quality.  Cells no longer sit on ice waiting to be counted, making the data output for our proteomic, genomic, and flow cytometry applications more accurate.”

“Scientific Directors approved [Cellaca] … they will get an approval from Dr. Allison and then we can move forward with this purchase. I am so happy!!!”
