The Hepatometer® Vision is a small, lightweight, benchtop instrument using digital image capturing and sophisticated image analysis software to determine cell count, cell size, and percent viability – typically in under 30 seconds. Results are accurate, consistent, and reliable. Hepatometer® Vision technology uses non-flow, whole cell imaging to retain cell integrity, requires a small cell sample (just 20 μL), utilizes a disposable counting chamber to eliminate cleaning and cross-contamination, and saves critical time in the process from thawing to the incubation assay. Information about the concentration and viability of a cell population is critical for experimental success. Accurate cell counting is the first step toseeding primary hepatocytes that form confluent monolayers in culture. Breaks in the hepatocyte epithelium and elongated hepatocytes in poor cultures have been proven to dramatically alter gene expression profiles. Though the
hemocytometer has been traditionally used for cell counting and viability measurements, the method is tedious, subject to inter-user variation, and the device requires careful cleaning and handling. The state-of-the-art technology of the Cellometer – Hepatometer® Vision eliminates the tedium and subjectivity of manual counting and offers easy, fast, and accurate cell counting and viability determination for primary hepatocytes.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Count and analyze cells in just 3 steps
- Pipette 20µL of cells into disposable counting chamber
- Insert chamber into Cellometer – Hepatometer® Vision
- Brightfield and fluorescent cell images are acquired and analyzed. Cell count data is generated automatically.
Accuracy you can rely on.
Automated cell counting bypasses tedious manual operations and calculations required with the standard hemocytometer, while offering greater precision and accuracy. The Cellometer – Hepatometer® Vision reduces standard deviation between hepatic assays by ensuring consistency in cell density, cell viability, cell concentration, and seeding density.
