Automated Cell Counter
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Life science researchers who want to expand their capabilities beyond traditional cell counting instruments can now do so with the Countess II FL, a next generation, benchtop assay instrument with a modular design that broadens the number of applications on a single platform. While most cell counters on the market have been limited to green and red fluorescent protein (GFP/RFP) channels, the new Countess II FL Automated Cell Counter is a three-channel (brightfield and two optional fluorescence channels) system that uses state-of-the-art optics and image analysis to perform assays for cells in suspension, including cell counting, fluorescent protein expression, apoptosis, cell viability, and cell cycle assays. Designed with flexibility in mind, the Countess II FL can also be configured to use a full range of EVOS light cubes that provide more than 13 fluorescence color options. The instrument can operate with a reusable glass chamber slide to reduce the cost of consumables.
