Cellometer X2 Fluorescent Viability Counter
Fluorescent automated cell counter for yeast, platelets and small cells
Cell Counting Made Simple
The Cellometer X2 utilizes bright field imaging, fluorescent imaging and pattern-recognition software to quickly and accurately identify and count individual cells. Cell count, concentration, diameter, and % viability are automatically calculated and reported.
5x Faster than Manual Counting:
Load sample, view image, count cells, and obtain results in < 60 seconds
The Cellometer X2 Allows Hemocytometer Users to:
Ensure all data is correctly captured
Count difficult cells (clumpy, irregular-shaped)
Eliminate judgment errors, miscounts, and user-to-user variability
Fluorescent dyes that stain DNA can be used to identify nucleated cells in a mixed cell population. Acridine orange (AO) is a nuclear staining (nucleic acid binding) dye permeable to both live and dead cells. It stains all nucleated cells to generate green fluorescence when imaged with the Cellometer X2.
Because mature mammalian red blood cells don’t contain nuclei, only mononuclear cells produce a fluorescent signal. Fluorescent-positive nucleated cells are easily counted. There is no need to lyse red blood cells, saving time and eliminating an extra sample preparation step.
