Using the CellDrop Automated Cell Counter, DeNovix Scientific Director Dan Schieffer demonstrates both brightfield and fluorescence methods of cell counting and viability assessment.
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.
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.
