January 2010
SHARING OPTIONS:

Millipore Corp.
 
Millipore Corp. has introduced Scepter, a handheld, automated cell counter that provides researchers with a simple, affordable option for counting cells and monitoring the health of their cultures. Scepter miniaturizes Coulter cell counting technology found in much larger instruments into a portable device the size of an automated pipette. The instrument contains sophisticated electronics for cell sensing, signal processing, and data storage. A graphical display reports the cell count and average cell volume within 20 seconds of inserting the tip into a cell culture sample. The instrument also displays a histogram of cell distribution by volume or diameter. The histogram can be used to provide an instant snap shot of the health of the culture. Results can be stored on the instrument or downloaded to a computer. The Scepter instrument will be commercially available during the latter half of the first quarter of 2010.
