Ever lose count when manually counting?

https://youtu.be/4xUYjVIgOdQ If you're using a microscope and hemacytometer to count your cells and determine viability, you might have felt like Sheldon, when he vacations in Amy's lab and, among other things, helps out by counting the bacteria spores.  Everything's going well until Amy returns to the lab, distracts Sheldon, and then he has to start over with his count. Fortunately for you, you don't have to be like Sheldon if you have an automated cell counter. We have bright field counters for cultured cells and Trypan Blue exclusion assays. We have dual fluorescent cell counters for messy, primary samples [...]

Rowan Univ Researchers using Cellometer Vision for PI Viability, Caspase-3 activation and ROS

The Cellometer instruments have a wide range of functionality – this publication demonstrates how an instrument such as the Cellometer Vision can be used for more than just viability and can perform many cell-based assays. Fructose differs from glucose in that it is not regulated by a negative feedback loop and can thereby negatively impact intracellular energy stores. As the incidence of diabetes and obesity have risen in this country, so has the intake of fructose, making fructose’s effects on pancreatic cells important to understand. Here, researchers at Rowan University revealed that fructose sensitizes pancreatic beta cells to TNF-a-induced toxicity. [...]
