The unique Green Edition CellDrop celebrates the instrument being awarded Sustainable Laboratory Product of the Year by SelectScience. CellDrop Automated Cell Counters feature unique DirectPipette™ technology, a novel sample loading method that eliminates the need for disposable plastic slides typically required for routine cell counting.
We’re delighted that Michiel was selected to receive the Green CellDrop. The group’s work investigates and supports biodiversity, so the CellDrop’s slide-free innovation will be a perfect fit for enhancing their research workflows.”
Andrew Jones, Market Development Manager, DeNovix.
For the Biosystematics Group, the CellDrop will be an excellent addition for both research and education. We investigate evolution at the species, population, and molecular level to address fundamental questions about themes like speciation, domestication and species interactions.”

The CellDrop will aid in the group’s biodiversity research by providing an environmentally friendly and automated method for assessing yeast viability, counting algae cells, and more.
“A great advantage will be that the CellDrop doesn’t use slides. This will save us a large amount of glass and plastic slides waste,” Michiel said. “The WUR University focuses on a sustainable future, and the CellDrop will help reduce laboratorial waste instead of creating more.”
