Today's research and biologic production demands on cell and tissue culture assumes no guesswork to confirming viable cell populations. Therefore, both cell concentration and percentage of viable cells must be determined accurately and precisely. The Vi-CELL® Cell Viability Analyzer provides an automatic and cost effective means to perform the trypan blue dye exclusion method. This data is essential to the decision making process for basic tissue culture cell passage and maintaining optimum culture conditions in bioreactors. Cell and tissue culture applications in life science research, including recombinant protein and biopharmaceutical production, require the accuracy, precision and automation available only in the Vi-CELL cell viability analyzer.
Counting cells by eye, with a hemocytometer and a microscope, may be just perfect for some applications. But for many others, especially those that ... read more
