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.

Robust, Easier-to-Use Line of Filter System Housings

For more information, please visit
Critical Process Filtration (CPF) Inc. has made a significant upgrade to the closure systems used in their line of stainless steel industrial filter systems. V-band clamps are being phased out and robust, simpler-to-install swing bolt clamp systems are being incorporated. Users can anticipate lower maintenance costs and stronger connections to eliminate leakage possibilities.

Whether evaluating the filtration of cell culture media, buffers, or validating virus removal or sterile filtration, CPF offers configurations from 13 mm disc filters to 40" cartridge filters. Process scale-up can be easily accomplished using CPF products and support.
Uncomplicated Weighing With Just the Necessary Functions
Sartorius has introduced the new Entris; a balance that focuses on the most commonly used weighing applications without the more costly functions of full-featured balances. A choice of models allows for consistent and accurate weighing capacities ranging from 60 g to 8,200 g with readabilities between 0.1 mg and 0.1 g.

Most Entris models are equipped with a monolithic weighing system featuring an external or internal motorized adjustment function. The logical key assignment and clearly structured, programmable user interface make daily routine weighing much easier.
