Cell Counting Made Easy
Perfect for large to small scale applications, 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.

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.
To support a cGMP environment Beckman Coulter offers an Instrument Operational Qualification Program. This program is designed to reduce your time and effort spent on complying with equipment guidelines in GMP.

Microplate Spectrophotometer with Enhanced User Interface
BioTek unveils the new Epoch™ 2 Microplate Spectrophotometer with a hi-res 10" touchscreen and full onboard Gen5™ analysis software for simplified and efficient operation and reporting of absorbance-based detection workflows. Epoch 2 features a spectral range from 200-999 nm, selectable in 1 nm increments for single, dual, and multi-wavelength measurements in endpoint and kinetic read methods; and also offers spectral- and well-area scanning.

Compatible sample vessels include 6- to 384-well microplates, standard cuvettes, and 2 µL samples via BioTek's Take3™ micro-volume plates. Standard linear, orbital, and double-orbital shaking, and precise 4-Zone™ temperature control to 65 °C are ideal settings for cell-based assays. Data can be exported via WiFi, BlueTooth®, and USB flash drive.
