Both brightfield and fluorescence cell counting techniques can provide accurate cell counts and viability assessments. Learn the advantages of each in this video.
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.
The CellDrop™ FL Automated Cell Counter enables the researcher to count PBMCs using a fluorescence image-based method. This Tech Note describes how CellDrop saves time, money and increases count accuracy and reproducibility vs. manual counting.
Employing best practices is essential for ensuring accurate and representative cell counts. This document explains the key factors that researchers should understand when using the CellDrop Automated Cell Counter.
A detailed description of how to optimize the AOPI or Custom Methods Applications for counting protoplasts on the DeNovix CellDrop™ FL Automated Cell Counter in conjunction with fluorescein diacetate (FDA) and propidium iodide(PI) fluorescent dyes.
Many yeast samples from brewing contain extracellular debris and are small in size, making them difficult to count using a traditional hemocytometer or brightfield cell counter. This technical note will provide the information needed to accurately count yeast concentration and viability using the fluorescent dyes fluorescein diacetate (FDA) and propidium iodide (PI).
