Count cells of different types and morphologies with the NucleoCounter® NC-202™

For a traditional trypan-blue based cell counter, it is important to optimize parameters such as roundness, object size, brightness, and cluster size to obtain an accurate cell count.

Optimizing instruments to count different cell cultures accurately and robustly under a variety of conditions, such as culture method, scale and vessel type, affect the cells and in some cases, their morphology.

Consistency across cell cultures, users or sites

The NucleoCounter® NC-202™ solves this morphological conundrum by detecting the fluorescent signals from cells labelled by specific fluorescent dyes. These dyes are conveniently pre-loaded into the Via2-Cassette™ and contained within the cassette’s chamber.

With no calibration or manual settings necessary, the NucleoCounter® instruments give directly comparable and consistent data regardless of the cell culture, user, or site. Collaborations in-house, externally, whether with academic institutions, or CDMOs, have never been so fast and easy.
