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.
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.
The use of trypan blue can be problematic for counting cells and assessing viability in some sample types where debris or non-nucleated cells can interfere. The DeNovix Acridine Orange (Ao) / Propidium Iodide (PI) fluorescence assay is a simple, accurate alternative. Comparative data is presented here.
The NIST has proposed a robust method to assess cell counting linearity and reproducibility. This technical note presents data for the CellDrop using this method and compares results to manually cell counting.
This technical note outlines seven top tips from the DeNovix applications team to ensure accurate and reproducible results when counting cells manually or using automated systems such as the CellDrop™ Automated Cell Counter.
EasyApps software includes pre-installed count apps for rapid counting and viability assessment. This note defines the count settings and how each can be adjusted to optimize performance.
