Automated and user-friendly cell counter.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Quantify mammalian cell counts and viability

"The NC-202 cell counter is a user-friendly device that can deliver automated cell counts with key metrics such as cell viability, debris index and more. This allowed me to process high volumes of samples with confidence and time to spare for other tasks."

Outstanding cell counter, highly recommended!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Counting of various human cancer cell lines

"The NC-202 has proven to be an outstanding cell counter which is easy to use and very accurate. While previous cell counters that our laboratory used often times showed significant variability in their count data, the NC-202 has provided stability and accurately reproducible data that has improved our workflow. One of the best features of the NC-202 are its cassettes, which are in and of themselves standalone "pipettes", which allow you to directly aspirate your cells (in medium) into the cassette. These cassettes contain the necessary dyes (Acridine Orange and DAPI) to stain your Live/Dead cell population, without the need of Trypan Blue. This makes counting cells very convenient, and is especially useful if you have a lot of cell lines you must count in a short time frame. The NC View software which comes with the NC-202 is also very easy to use. It's very clean and effective as far as its user interface, and provides a nice array of options for assessing the condition of your cell population. ChemoMetec really thought deeply about user-friendliness when it came to their software, and that is something I greatly appreciate when you are trying to generate data rapidly and efficiently. Finally, the sales, training, and customer services representatives from ChemoMetec were absolutely outstanding. They provided a fantastic overview of the NC-202 when I first became interested in it, and were always happy to help answer any questions or inquiries I had about the machine. Sales and Technical support personnel really went out of their way to provide outstanding service when I needed it. Overall, the NC-202 is a great product, and I recommend it to any laboratory that needs a reliable, trustworthy cell counter."

The device is characterized by very easy and intuitive operation.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:In process control of insect cell growth and viability during propagation

"We use the device to measure the parameters of insect cells (Sf9 line). The great advantage of the instrument is the speed of analysis, simple operation and operation that does not require regular replacement of reagents. The dyes are immobilized on the Via2-Cassette, which allows intuitive sample processing and minimizes errors. E.g. if air bubbles can be sucked in due to incorrect handling, a warning is displayed in the software. The software allows you to enter the sample name, dilution factor, operator name everything you need today. Data can be easily and intuitively browsed, exported eg to .pdf. The results of the last few measurements are displayed on the home screen. We do not use the DebrisIndex function very much, it serves us more as a measure of gentle treatment of cell culture. The manufacturer offers standard qualifications (IQ, OQ) for the device. For control measurements, it is possible to purchase a PQ set, which will allow checking the function of the device."

Counts cells quicker than any counter I've ever used!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting

"This is a fantastic instrument. It performs cell counts quicker than any counter I've ever used! No sample prep required, just load a cartridge, load it in the system and hit go. With tricky aggregated samples, the lysis method beats any cell counter I've used before, I can't recommend the NC-202 more!"

Great bit of kit and such a time saver - get one!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell counting for various process manipulations

"I have previously used other counters from ChemoMetec so it was very quick and easy for me to get used to the NC-202. After carrying out a linearity study we were able to show that we got more reliable, reproducible and accurate data compared to the other instrument we were assessing. We tend to work with small volumes and the NC-202 is able to work reliably and reproducibly within our ranges. The ease of use makes it more streamlined to carry out our experiments and we are able to save on both labour and time resources making it great value for money. The after sales care has been great, they have checked in to see if there is anything we needed. However, everything is working well so we have not needed anything but it is good to know that they are there should we need anything."

Nucleocounter is the winner! My best buddy in the lab.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Counting cells for calculating further FLOW analysis

"Easy to use, data is easy to copy and move to excel. I believe the data, because in the pilot set up I counted manually and at the same time used the nucleocounter. The same values were achieved using each method. I prefer to use the nucleocounter because it is very easy and very friendly to use. All data is easy to move to excel for more calculating for the FLOW analysis. If the data wasn't credible, we wouldn't be able to believe our data from FLOW. But all data from FLOW answered our hypotheses and confirmed our experimental setup. The Nucleocounter from ChemoMetec ia our winner in our experimental set ups. Without the Nucleocounter we're lost and I would need to apend several hours counting cells manually. Spares my body and gives credible data, thank you so much!"

Review date: 07 Mar 2021 | NucleoCounter® NC-202™ automated cell counter

The NucleoCounter® NC-202 automated cell counter is our 3rd generation cassette-based image cytometer. Featuring improved hardware and new NC-View software, we take precision, speed and data management to new levels. The NucleoCounter® NC-202 is the most precise automated cell counter on the market: The combined inter-operator/inter-instrument variation is typically 5 – 10%. Consequently, you obtain identical results with any cell sample, recorded by any user, located anywhere in the world.

The NucleoCounter® NC-202 has one universal cell counting protocol that handles all cell types: No optimization is required. The instrument provides robustness and precision regardless of cell size, morphology and media type, even in the presence of red blood cells, magnetic beads or cellular debris. Consequently, the NucleoCounter® NC-202 is easy to validate, even for the most complex processes.

The all new DebrisIndex is a measurement of culture debris build-up. Debris negatively affects downstream filtering and purification steps, so a direct measurement of debris facilitates better process development parameters. The NC-View software is compatible with 21 CFR Part 11/GMP guidelines and can be integrated into your clinical workflow.

Our Field Application Scientists (FASs) provide training, service visits, installation and user guidance on-site or online to ensure you get the best start to working with the NucleoCounter® NC-202.

What’s NEW – NucleoCounter® NC-202:

  • Automated cell counter
  • Analysis time only 30 seconds
  • Improved light sources for greater signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range
  • DebrisIndex monitors cell culture health and bioreactor production runs
  • Broader linearity range: Count samples up to 1×107 cells/ml
  • Instrument Service Plan: Keep your instrument up-to-date
  • Automatic data quality checks for sample artefacts
  • Electromechanical cassette slot for easy operation
