The Cell Counter model R1 automated cell counter is designed to reduce workloads and to standardize the cell counting process. Its unique software algorithm and innovative liquid lens technology that is similar to the way human eyes focus provide accurate and fast counting results for a variety of cell types. This portable instrument equipped with user-friendly touchscreen provides reliable result throughout the cell culture workflow and accelerates the cell culture process.
Exclusive Software Designed for Accurate Cell Counting
Accurate Counting Even with Clustered Cells
Since cells are properly identified regardless of whether they are single or clustered, live or dead, the number of cells can be accurately counted with almost the same accuracy as counting with the human eye.
Cell Size-Based Gates for Excluding Undesired Particles
The average size of the cells varies depending on cell type. The maximum and minimum cell size can be adjusted to correctly detect the desired cells. In addition, the counting result can be displayed as a histogram based on the size distribution, which helps when analyzing only cells in a certain size range and for excluding undesired particles.
Individual Protocol Setting for Routine Procedures
Each detection parameter can be modified to fit the sample conditions. Up to 300 specific protocols can be easily saved and reloaded, which helps to obtain quick counting results for routine procedures.
Automatic Dilution Calculator for a Quick Transfer to Subsequent Procedures
By setting the desired concentrations, the dilution calculator automatically calculates the volume of cell suspension needed, which makes for a quick transfer to the subsequent procedures.
More Efficient Counting without Trypan Blue Staining
The Cell Counter can quickly count and present the total number of cells in a sample without Tryptan blue. When an approximate proportion of live/dead cells in the sample is known, the number of live cells can be roughly estimated, allowing for a faster procedure.
More Efficient Data Management
The Cell Counter automatically stores up to 1,000 counts. The data can then be exported as a CSV file. Also, the counted results and image data can be stored as a TIFF, an annotated TIFF, or a PDF report file. Moreover, these data can easily be transferred to other storage devices through the USB ports equipped with the Cell Counter.
Comprehensive Report Results at a Glance
The report files can be obtained easily, containing the protocol used, the cell count results, the corresponding raw/ analyzed cell images, and histograms. There is no need to write down detailed settings for each cell count. Also, on the review mode, various reports can be viewed all at once on the touchscreen, including the numbers of live/ dead cells, average cell size.
Innovative Autofocusing Liquid Lens Technology
Quick and Reliable Focusing Mechanism
The Cell Counter focuses on cells quickly and automatically using liquid lens technology, similar to the way human eyes focus, and provides the accuracy and reliability of cell counting. The lens can autofocus in the Z-axis direction at the right position, producing more accurate counting results and increasing the accuracy and reliability of cell counting.
Focus adjustment by the liquid lens
The handle on the top of the counter makes it easy to transport the Cell Counter, and allows it to fit any workplace setting. A storage space for the AC adapter is conveniently built into the back of the counter. An extension cord can be stored easily with no hassle.
Cost Efficient Disposable Slides
By using disposable counting slides specifically designed for the Cell Counter, cells are easily placed through the loading slits on the slide. Since two sets of cell counting are performed on one slide, cost saving measures are achieved.
Designed with usability in mind, the Cell Counter comes as a standalone automated cell counter with a steady operation platform. The stability of the large touchscreen at the lower part of the Cell Counter makes it possible to easily and smoothly count cells, view data, and print the results.
