Having a tough time counting your PBMCs?

If you are experiencing difficulty counting your PBMCs with Trypan Blue using a hemacytometer, we feel your pain! But did you know all that pain can be avoided? With the Cellometer Auto 2000 automated cell counter, counting peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and other complex primary samples is a breeze! Using dual fluorescence image-based cytometry and staining your samples with AO/PI (acridine orange and propidium iodide), the Cellometer Auto 2000 cell counter can detect live and dead nucleated cells while excluding debris, red blood cells, platelets in your sample. Here is what some of our happy customers counting PBMCs have [...]

Cellometer Auto 2000 assists in developing new method to isolate and expand umbilical cord derived mesenchymal stromal cells

Kansas State University scientists developed a new method by which to isolate and expand umbilical cord derived mesenchymal stromal cells (UCMSCs). Rather than dissecting blood vessels, this method uses a dissociator followed by enzymatic digestion. This reduces contamination and hands-on time and produces ten times more cells per cm of tissue than other processes. The Cellometer Auto 2000 and AO/PI were used to count live cells and record cell size. The scientists validated the cells obtained from this method, demonstrating the cells’ expression of the standard surface markers CD90, CD105, CD73, CD44, as well as their pluripotent differentiation potential. UCMSCs [...]

Cellometer Auto 2000 participates in new method for manufacturing human umbilical cord mesenchymal stromal cells on an industrial scale

Human mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs) hold enormous promise for regenerative medicine. Kansas State University researchers investigated the growth parameters necessary to propagate hMSCs on a larger scale, moving from static cultures to the scope of stirred bioreactor tanks. Now that this group has optimized a new method by which to isolate and expand these hMSCs (please see companion paper by this group), the next challenge was producing enough cells to satisfy future clinical needs. The researchers investigated the growth kinetics and metabolic needs of these cells as the propagation scope increased. The Cellometer Auto 2000 recorded cell viability, size, and [...]

Visit Nexcelom Bioscience at ISSX 2014!

The International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics is hosting their annual meeting October 19-23, 2014 at the Hilton San Francisco in San Francisco, CA. Nexcelom Bioscience will be exhibiting at booth # 314. We have 3 instruments that are specifically relevant for this field: Cellometer Auto 2000, Cellometer K2 and Celigo S. If you're attending ISSX 2014, stop by the booth, talk to Justin or Tim, and learn about how these instruments can benefit you and your lab! If you aren't able to make it out to ISSX this year, but would like more information about any of these [...]
