Scepter™ 3.0 Handheld Cell Counter

The Scepter™ 3.0 Cell Counter is the only automated cell counter that's portable and handheld. This cell counter is the only device to bring the accuracy and consistency of Coulter impedance counting right to the culture hood. While other automated counters consume bench space and rely on object recognition software, manual focusing, and clumsy loading chambers, the Scepter™ 3.0 cell counter provides true automation without the risk of error that accompanies vision-based systems. With its microfabricated, precision-engineered sensor, the Scepter™ 3.0 cell counter does all the work of assessment and calculation, and delivers accurate and reliable cell counts in less than 30 seconds.
