Other Notes

The Scepter Cell Counter delivers rapid cell counts in a handheld easy to use format. Its on screen instructions guide you through the sampling process and in less than 40 seconds reveil data on cell concentration, average diameter, average volume and a histogram displaying population information on your culture. The device stores up to 72 counts which can be downloaded to your computer and uploaded to Excel for further manipulation.
FREE PACK OF 60μM Sensors included.

Background information

The Scepter 2.0 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 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.
