Cell Counter

  • Scepter
  • Scepter Millipore

    The Scepter is a portable cell counter from Millipore. The Scepter provides true automation without the error that accompanies vision-based systems.

    It uses disposable microfabricated sensores. This cell counter does all the work and delivers accurate and reliable cell counts in less than 30 seconds.

    How to use? 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 counters screen displays:

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