Scepter™ 2.0: Automated Cell Counter

"This machine accurately count every cell in your sample. It can count cells as small as 5uM diameter. It can track cell health as you monitor histograms from one preparation to the next. It has been a great time saver with ultra convenience for a decent price. Everyone in the lab loves it. I would highly recommend it! "

Review date: 03 Jun 2013

Application Area: cell culture
Scepter™ 2.0: Automated Cell Counter

"The hand held piece of equipment is easy to operate for a small numbers of samples .It is not terribly heavy but clearly more so than a regular pipette, so the continuous use may have some impact on your wrist and hand if you already do a lot of pipetting. Its initial cost is reasonable, however the tips (disposable) are a significant cost on a per run basis. The tips (come in two sizes) are somewhat hard to fit into the pipette and more importantly are not fully prevented from being fitted the wrong way around (in fact an inexperienced student damaged the contacts by doing this). Range of concentration in which it is reliable is limited. We have tried other pieces of equipment for this same purpose and found this to be reliable and with good consistency on repeats. Battery life is good and charges through a USB port. Downloading the files saved may take some time but is not required too frequently."

"It's a very useful cell culture! I'm using it for drug proliferation and apoptosis assays. It's very accurate and the software is very complete but consuming for spare tips."

Scepter™ 2.0: Automated Cell Counter

"it worked ok."

Description

 

Scepter™ 2.0 Cell Counter – your portable cell counter. The first and only device to bring consistency in cell counting right to the culture hood: the Scepter™ 2.0 cell counter

While other automated counters consume bench space and rely on object recognition software, manual focusing, and clumsy loading chambers, the Scepter™ cell counter provides true automation without the error that accompanies vision-based systems. With its microfabricated, precision-engineered sensor, the Scepter™ cell counter does all the work and delivers accurate and reliable cell counts in less than 30 seconds.

Trust Scepter™ counting with your most valuable samples to get reproducible and reliable counts. The reliability of Scepter™ counting is particularly apparent with smaller cell types. Because the Scepter™ cell counter measures volume using the Coulter Principle, it can quantify cells based on size and will discriminate larger cells from smaller debris, unlike vision based techniques, which rely on object recognition software and cannot reliably detect small cells.


Scepter™ 2.0: Automated Cell Counter Features:

  • Accurately count every cell in your sample.
  • Qualitatively determine cell health. Count subpopulations in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC) preps.
  • Easily capture, analyze and manipulate data sets with Scepter™ Software Pro.

Applications:

  • T Cell Differentiation
  • Cell Cycle
  • Adipogenesis Monitoring
  • Immuno-monitoring
  • Bead Counting
  • Cell Death
  • Human PBMC Counting
  • Somatic Cell Counting
  • Counting Yeast Cells
