Counting nucleated cells from whole blood
Nucleated blood cell concentration is a critical parameter in immunology research. The NucleoCounter® instruments are a rapid, cost-effective alternative to conventional hematology analyzers, using red blood cells lysis and dual-fluorescence nuclear staining to measure the nucleated cell count and viability in whole blood. The analysis itself only takes 50 seconds, and doesn’t require instrument warm-up or calibration. Thus the NucleoCounter® is the ideal instrument for research and bioprocessing laboratories with moderate sample processing needs. In contrast to hematology analyzers, the NucleoCounter® can be used more broadly for counting cultured cells, with unparalleled precision.
