CellDrop™ Cell Counters
DeNovix Inc. announces the launch of the CellDrop Automated Cell Counter. CellDrop is the first instrument to incorporate DeNovix’ patent-pending DirectPipette™ Technology, removing the need for expensive, environmentally damaging plastic slides and cumbersome hemocytometers from routine cell counting. Featuring dual fluorescence and brightfield optics, variable height sample chamber, and powerful, easy-to-use analysis software, the CellDrop enables the fastest cell counts, viability assessment, and GFP transfection efficiency measurements across the widest range of cell density, cell type and application.
DirectPipette™ –SmartPath® Technology
The CellDrop Series brings the familiar Load, Measure & Wipe Clean functionality of microvolume spectrophotometers to cell counting. Traditional plastic slides or glass hemocytometers are replaced by two permanent optical sapphire surfaces. These are positioned parallel to one another by a calibration-free, high-precision mechanism, forming a chamber of precisely defined height. 10µL of cell suspension is pipetted into the chamber, analyzed and simply wiped away with a dry laboratory wipe. The powerful live-view image allows instant verification that cleaning has been successful.
Eliminate Slide Costs - Environmental Friendly!
CellDrop automated cell counter will save money and eliminate disposable plastic slides. It was made and designed by researchers for researchers to solve problems in reducing the usage of plastic. Accelerate your research and improve the sustainability of your lab byremoving the environmental impact of disposable plastic slides! Together we create a green environment. Say no to plastics!
The Most Powerful Software – User Friendly!
The powerful on board EasyApps® software enables a range of cell counting, viability and transfection efficiency assays. Comes with pre-installed apps for AO/PI, Brightfield, Trypan Blue, and GFP, the instruments allows the functionality to easily customize methods. The CellDrop is a stand-alone instrument, with a high definition, 7” touchscreen ideal for reviewing live images, data and reports. All instruments contain Wi-Fi, USB, and Ethernet connectivity, allowing users to easily export data via email, network drives, network printers or USB drive.
Best Overall Performance – Speed and Accurate!
Using conventional counting methods, samples with high or low cell densities require time consuming dilution or concentration steps. The variable height chamber of the CellDrop adjusts chamber depth automatically, delivering the most accurate counts over the widest cell densities – 7 x 102 to 4 x 107. Chamber height can also be adjusted to accommodate almost any cell with a diameter range of 4 to 400µm.CellDrop’s variable volume counting chamber will automatically keep your cells in the optimal range for the most accurate results and eliminate need to dilute or concentrate many samples.
Hazardous Sample? – No Problem!
The small footprint and onboard processing allow the CellDrop to fit inside most flow hoods. For applications that require the cells to be contained when reading, the CellDrophas the option to use common disposable plastic slides and reusable slides for those samples without the need for additional adaptors.
Make Your Choice – Dual Fluorescence or Brightfield?
The CellDrop offers the ultimate in flexibility to meet the needs of today’s leading cell culture labs which is CellDrop FL and CellDrop BF.
- CellDrop FL: The combination of dual fluorescence optics with brightfield illumination functions to provide the widest feature set for current and future application needs.
- CellDrop BF:The Brightfield Cell Counter ideal for labs to automate and reduce the cost of trypan blue counting.
