Both brightfield and fluorescence cell counting techniques can provide accurate cell counts and viability assessments. Learn the advantages of each in this video.
A short video outlining the best practices for loading and cleaning using DirectPipette, the unique sample retention and measurement technology of CellDrop Automated Cell Counters
Reduce plastic waste in your lab, eliminate disposable slide costs and automate cell counting in your lab with DeNovix CellDrop cell counters. Using DirectPipette™ Technology, CellDrop brings familiar load, measure and wipe clean ease-of-use to image-based cell counters. CellDrop is available in Dual Fluorescence and Brightfield (CellDrop FL) or Brightfield only models (CellDrop BF).
Cells that are elliptical in shape and less perfectly round can be difficult to count with an automated cell counter. CellDrop includes Irregular Cell Mode to address this issue. This feature enables researchers to accurately count a wider variety of cells.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology has proposed a robust method to assess cell counting linearity and reproducibility using serial dilutions to measure the proportional change of concentration on a cell counting device compared to the known proportion of the dilution series. A version of this method was tested on a DeNovix CellDrop Automated Cell Counter to assess the linearity and reproducibility near the CellDrop limits of detection.
This technical note describes how rapid and accurate viable pollen counts can be determined using the DeNovix CellDrop™ FL Automated Cell Counter in conjunction with fluorescein diacetate (FDA) fluorescent stain.
