  • Application Area:Cell counting

"Everyone in the lab is pretty enthusiastic about the cell counter compared to the alternative or formerly applied methods/devices for a number of reasons: tiny dimensions of the device, easily installed, intuitive use (check the YouTube video!), improved data quality, less time consuming working step. For a quick estimation of the cell number: suspension cells can even be directly measured in the culture flask without loading onto the counting chamber."

  • Application Area:Cell counting - determination of cytotoxicity following exposure to environmental toxicants

"Absolutely. Very easy to use, and yields reproducible results.  We are able to quickly perform cell counts on dozens of samples in rapid succession - whereas the traditional methods for trypan blue counting were much more labor intensive."

Good machine that is great value. I am glad I purchased it
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Cell counts for flow and plating experiments

"The cell counter is a great tool for a quick estimate of the number of cells. I am not sure how reproducible the cell count is if you need an absolute count. We use it for relative counts and estimates. It has been great. Due to space issues we do not have it set up in a dedicated spot, so we use it a portable set up. It is small enough that we can set it up almost anywhere and the set up is easy, taking less than 5 minutes. I think it has excellent value and speeds up cell counting if you have a lot of samples to count. It is relatively inexpensive too because you reuse the hemacytometer and don't have to buy separate counting chambers for each sample like many of the automated cell counters."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell biology

"We compared the cell counter with manually counting. The data matches very nicely if you do not overload the slides with too high a cell density. To get reliable data, high debris content should also not be present."

Cost-saving, fast and accurate results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Tissue culture for cell biology assays

"The Corning Cell Counter has an intuitive interface and with internet server-assisted counting, it can count a cell sample even more quickly than the Nexcelom Auto T4. I like how it can utilize a lab's existing standard hemoctytometer slides and does depend on expensive consumables. The savings on the Nexcelom slides alone would pay for the instrument with several months of heavy usage. The internet dependency could have a downside with an unstable WiFi connection or if there is a problem with the server, but overall we have had a solid experience with this instrument."

  • Application Area:Counting standard human cultured cell lines

"We purchased the Corning cell counter after having tested several competing products. The counter is very user-friendly and yields similar results when compared to manual counting. The service and communication after purchase was excellent. Sometimes we had issues concerning the software after updates but they were quickly resolved after contacting the custumer service. I have been using this device for more than a year now and it has served me well in a lot of experiments. I have also saved time when, expecially when counting multiple different cell lines for one experiment."

  • Application Area:Stem cells therapy development

"The cell counter is very user friendly, easy to use. I especially love the program, which offers excellent graphs and stores the results in cloud. It is economical, as it uses a reusable glass slide. I find it great, that the program calculates the Trypan Blue dillution when used. The quality of counting is great and saves me a lot of time."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"Compared to other cell counters the Corning Cell Counter offers several advantages, namely the machine price, the long-term consumables costs and the easy counting procedure. We had several devices for testing and the CytoSmart Exact (how the machine was called back then) offered for us the overall best value for money. Since all users in our lab routinely count cells almost every day, we were very happy that you can use almost any standard counting chamber, which effectively reduces consumables cost to nearly zero. We initially compared the counting results to manual counting per microscope and although there was always a certain difference, the overall counting results were reproducible. Typical problems for cell counting, such as debris, hairs, cell clusters or such do contribute to these variations in counting, although the Corning Cell Counter tries to circumvent theses problems. Overall, we find the Corning Cell Counter to be a really useful and highly frequented equipment in our cell culture, although one has to be aware that the counting results will normally be "just" a quite good estimation. The support was so far also helpful and considers suggestions from the community and user base as well."

  • Application Area:Count cell lines and mouse leukocytes

"We are mainly using this cell counter for counting mouse cell lines and leucocytes isolated from spleen, and other organs. It's nice that a distinction can be made between living and dead cells. For this application the machine is very accurate, quick and reliable. It helps us to save time when performing large experiments. For this machine, the after sales care is very good. They really think along and help solving problems."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Determine cell numbers for cell culture, within an educational course.

"Manual counting of the cells can be a very time-consuming step. This product is designed for quick and easy cell counting as the camera and software are designed to recognize cells very quickly, and directly calculates an absolute cell number. The cloud service works very well, allowing quick access to your data, also from multiple devices. In case of questions, the software has an in-built chat option for direct contact. This little device requires little space, and delivers what it's designed for, at an attractive price!"

"Counting cells is among the apparently simplest of activities, but not to be underestimated. Combining a traditional counting chamber approach with high quality image analysis achieves great simplicity and convenience. Time trusted analytical methods provide control and confidence in the sample, whilst accurate image analysis is combined with pragmatic data handling to speed up what can often be a laborious process. Highly recommended."

Review date: 20 Dec 2018 | Corning® Cell Counter

The new Corning® Cell Counter is the first automated benchtop cell counter that combines the benefits of both manual cell counting and automated image-based cell counting. Using state-of-the-art optics and image analysis software, the Corning Cell Counter can accurately and precisely measure cell concentrations and viability – live, dead, and total cells – using the standard Trypan Blue technique. Unique benefits include:

  • Fast – Performs a single cell count in less than three seconds using the CytoSMART™ Cloud App.
  • Accurate – The state-of-the-art image analysis software allows for optimal accuracy (the system can also detect cell viability using Trypan Blue)
  • Low-cost – Works with common re-usable glass hemocytometers. No consumables required.
  • Easy to Use – Simply connect the Cell Counter to your computer or tablet and start the CytoSMART Cloud App.
  • Quick access to the data anywhere and anytime – Instantly generates a report containing the counted cell concentrations and viability including an image of the counted sample with the counted cells (live and dead) clearly indicated.
