NucleoCounter® NC-3000™

Advanced Image Cytometer

 

  • A variety of fixed and build-your-own assays
  • High-speed cell counting and advanced data analysis
  • No warm-up or calibration required
  • No liquid waste produced
  • 21 CFR Part 11/GMP-ready software

The NucleoCounter® NC-3000™ advanced image cytometer utilizes fluorescence imaging to characterize cell properties. The instrument performs high-speed plug-and-play analytical assays of mammalian, yeast and insect cells. Pre-defined assays include a unique 5-minute Cell Cycle Assay, a selection of Apoptosis Assays and the standard Cell Count and Viability Assay.

With the FlexiCyte™ license, you can create protocols with options for light source, emission filters and other detailed settings. The accompanying NucleoView™ software is ideal for intuitive data analysis and has unlimited licenses. You can view data in plot graphs and interlinked images, which can be saved for later on-demand analysis.

This advanced image cytometer ensures flow-like analysis with high reproducibility, operates with low sample volumes, and is calibration-free.

Used with the disposable Via1-Cassette™, this closed cell counting system helps you stay protected when handling samples. No pipettes, no exposure to (toxic) reagents, and minimal clean-up make the NucleoCounter® NC-3000™ a safe option.
