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.
