Nexcelom Cellometer T4MORE INFO
Cellometer AutoT4 is a compact, simple to use, automated cell counter designed to improve accuracy, repeatability, and throughput compared to manual cell counting with the hemacytometer. It uses brightfield microscopy images to analyze cell samples to determine cell concentration and trypan blue viability.
Best Suited For:
- total cell concentration for highly viable cell population
- live cell concentration and viability using trypan blue
- cell size measurements
- identify and count cells based on cell size difference
- capture and store sell images
Fast, Accurate Automated Cell Counter
Ideal For Determining Concentration And Trypan Blue Viability And Cell Lines
Minimal Sample Prep
Disposable counting chambers is the only consumable needed to run Cellometer AutoT4. Only 20 µL of sample is required, in the chambers load in seconds, and when done can be disposed, eliminating the need for coverslips and washing between samples.
Trypan Blue Viability
Trypan blue treated cells are automatically counted as live or dead, and the percentage viability is automatically calculated. Live counted cells are indicated by a green circle on screen, and dead cells by a red circle.
No two cells are the same, which is why live cell morphology can be immediately viewed on screen, and counted cells are indicated on screen for further analysis. Accounting results are indicated for each cell in images can be saved or exported for a secure record of all your cell counts.
Fast! From loading counting chamber to view cell morphology and counting, the Cellometetr Auto T4 typically produces the cell concentration and viability in less than 30 seconds!
Exclude Cellular Debris
Because the Cellometer AutoT4 recognizes cells based on size, brightness, and morphology, cellular debris can be excluded from counting results, ensuring accurate data.
Heterogeneous Cell Samples
Minimum and maximum cell size parameters can be set to only count specific cells in a heterogeneous sample. This is ideal for counting dendritic cells cultured from PBMC, or counting PBMC's amongst platelets.
Irregular Cell Shapes
The Cellometer AutoT4 can recognize and count irregular shaped cells by adjusting the roundness cell setting. This feature is ideal for counting RD cells were activated T-cells
Cell Size Measurement
Unlike manual counting, the Cellometer AutoT4 measures both individual and mean cell sizes, and can generate size distribution histograms for all counted cells. Multiple histograms can be overlaid for determining changes in cell sizes over time.
Changes in Cell Diameter
Because the Cellometer AutoT4 generates individual cell size measurements, multiple samples can be overlaid on one histogram, enabling analysis of change in cell diameter over time, such as when counting SF9 or SF21 cells. Saved images can be viewed and counted later to analyze changes in morphology over time.
MOVE BEYOND CELL COUNTING TO TRUE INFORMATION SYSTEMS!
With a single mouse click, you can save the sample image with data to disk, print the results, display cell size distribution and a histogram, or populate an Excel spreadsheet for additional analysis.

The BioDrop CUVETTE micro-volume cuvette is an innovative solution for accurate low volume spectroscopy, providing the simplest way for life scientists to accurately quantify microlitre volumes of DNA and protein in almost any UV/Vis spectrophotometer. The BioDrop CUVETE micro-volume cuvette overcomes many of the disadvantages of conventional low volume instruments and is a valuable tool for the modern life sciences laboratory combining ease of use and greater accuracy than other techniques.
BioDrop CUVETE enables researchers the opportunity to convert conventional UV/Vis spectrophotometers into a low-volume UV/Vis spectrophotometer for a very reasonable price. They are ideal for nucleic acid (DNA/RNA) measurements, proteins, microarrays, and bacterial cultures. No dilution is required to perform the measurement and ~1ul of sample is needed. This enables researchers to preserve precious samples.
The BioDrop CUVETTE also offer exceptional measurement accuracy and the wide measurement range (7ng/ul - 12,000 ng/ul) means you do not have to worry about changing pathlengths. Simple to use and easy to clean, the BioDrop micro-volume cuvettes' robust design means they will withstand the wear and tear of daily use. Included with the BioDrop cuvette is a bubble viewer, which enables end users to inspect the sample for impurities such as dust or bubbles.
