Cell Counting Made Easy
Perfect for large to small scale applications in biopharma, industrial, and academic fields, the Vi-CELL XR Cell Viability Analyzer automates the widely accepted trypan blue dye exclusion method for cell viability that has historically been performed manually with a light microscope, pipette, and a hemacytometer.

For more information, please visit:
Thanks to cutting-edge liquid handling technology, the entire system—from sample aspiration to reagent handling to instrument cleaning — is fully controlled by an advanced, yet easy-to-use software interface designed for maximum flexibility.

In less than 90 seconds, the Vi-CELL XR measures 15 to 30 times the volume of the hemacytometer method with a more comprehensive number of parameters. The Vi-CELL XR provides critical information conventional methods can’t offer.

Products & Services
Safe Storage of Noxious and Odorous Chemicals
The new Safestore™ Vented Chemical Storage Cabinets from Air Science are ideal for storage of noxious or odorous chemicals. These cabinets minimize health and environmental risks in handling chemical vapors and residues, VOCs, and general laboratory functions.

The Air Science Multiplex™ filtration system protects personnel during use, maintenance, and decontamination. Advanced carbon filtration technology offers a safe, high-performance alternative to ducted cabinets for a broad range of applications.

Safestore cabinets isolate and trap biological and chemical vapors to prevent operator exposure and cross contamination, and to eliminate the ecological impact from chemical or particulate release into the environment. 

The Safestore cabinets are available in three capacities, 25 L, 1000 L, and 2000 L. For more information, please visit
Thermal Plate Sealer

The MicroSeal from Porvair Sciences is a compact and easy-to-use manual microplate heat sealer. Heat sealing creates an airtight and chemically-resistant seal without the use of adhesives. The MicroSeal incorporates a unique ergonomic pull down mechanism for quick and simple single action heat sealing of a wide range of plates.

The Microseal uses a pre-set temperature of 170°C, ideal for most common sealing applications, and a dual LED status display of power and heating. Plus, the built-in thermostat prevents plates from overheating.
