General description

The Scepter 3.0 handheld automated cell counter provides a fast and convenient method for counting cells and particles and is compatible with both the 40 and 60uM sensor. The system employs the Coulter principle in a miniaturized, handheld, format enabling rapid cell counting; what used to take 10 minutes now takes less than 30 seconds. The user prepares a dilution of the cell culture of interest and uses the Scepter cell counter to aspirate a sample of this dilution into the Scepter sensor.

The Scepter 3.0 cell counter′s screen displays:

  • Cell concentration
  • Average cell size
  • Average cell volume
  • Histogram of size or volume distribution


This system is intended for research use only and has been tested with cell types representative of those in use today.

Features and Benefits

The Scepter 3.0 sensor is engineered with a micro-fabricated, cell-sensing zone that enables discrimination by cell size and cell volume - down to sub-micron and sub-picoliter resolution.

Coupled with precision liquid handling channels and electronics, the Scepter sensor accurately and reliably provides cell population statistics

The Scepter™ 3.0 Cell Counter, when used in conjunction with a 40 μm aperture sensor, can accurately count and precisely size a wide range of cell types and particles. This application note demonstrates two examples of experiments using the instrument’s sensitive size-discriminating capacity for rapid qualitative assessment of individual cell populations.
