  • Application Area:QC cell lines

  • Vi-CELL® XR Cell Viability Analyzer

"Vi Cell is easy to use. However, I wish it had more comment capability (a way to enter information about each sample). Photos are very large creating a data storage problem, but overall I would recommend the product."

  • Vi-CELL® XR Cell Viability Analyzer

"A simple and effective way to monitor cell growth. A negative would be the loss of accuracy when counting clumpy cell lines (e.g. hepatocytes)- alternative counters are needed for these."

"A straight forward to use automated cell counter which is fairly accurate. The settings are easy to change for new cell types. The only downside is that too many sample tubes are sent."

  • Vi-CELL® XR Cell Viability Analyzer

"The image analysis parameters had to be modified to give comparible values as measured by Cedex and manual hemcytometer methods for the cell types used in our labs. The system is more trouble free than the Cedex."

Description

The Vi-CELL Series Cell Viability Analyzers provide an automatic and cost effective means to perform the trypan blue dye exclusion method.

This data is essential to the decision making process for basic tissue culture cell passage and maintaining optimum culture conditions in bioreactors. Cell and tissue culture applications in life science research, including recombinant protein and biopharmaceutical production, require the accuracy, precision and automation available only in the Vi-CELL cell viability analyzer.

Determining cell concentration and viability accurately and precisely is a requirement in research and in the production of biopharmaceuticals. The Vi-CELL XR automates this process that eliminates variability inherent in manual sample preparation and counting.

The Vi-CELL automates the widely accepted trypan blue cell exclusion method. Historically, cell viability determinations were performed manually using a light microscope and hemacytometer. This technique has major shortcomings due to subjective determination of cell count, as well as manual, time consuming steps. In comparison to the manual technique, the Vi-CELL automatically performs the trypan blue with video imaging of the flow-through cell. Results are obtained in minutes.

This data is essential to the decision making process for basic tissue culture cell passage and maintaining optimum culture conditions in bioreactors. Cell and tissue culture applications in life science research, including recombinant protein and biopharmaceutical production, require the accuracy, precision and automation available only in the Vi-CELL cell viability analyser.
