Counting cells is a critical function throughout laboratories. Though cell counting is a fundamental process for determination of further experimentation and proper dosage of cell-based therapies, methodologies have varied from lab to lab and person to person. Developing standards for the way laboratories count cells is crucial, particularly in the area of gene and cell therapy.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) collaborated to develop guidance documentations for the standardization and overall improved quality of cell counting methods. Nexcelom Bioscience is proud to be a part of this important development for method selection and evaluation, and we have taken the time to break down the published standards into six key focus areas.

In each of the six areas, Nexcelom Bioscience provides additional details on how your laboratory can maintain guidelines, meet standards, and ensure proper method selection of counting cells based on your experimentation.
