Here are the advantages of Excedr’s cell counter leasing program:

  • Leasing eliminates the upfront cost of buying equipment by enabling you to make payments over time
  • Payments may be 100% tax-deductible*, which yields you significant cash-savings
  • It costs less to lease through our program than to purchase outright
  • Our comprehensive repair coverage minimizes your lab’s downtime
  • We handle and streamline the admin work associated with instrument procurement and maintenance
  • With the capital saved through our program, labs are better able to reinvest in their core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)

*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.

Depending on what type of work you do, getting an accurate count of how many cells are in a sample is important.

Automated cell counters are devices that allow doctors and laboratory workers to know exactly how many cells, dead or alive, are in a culture. Most automated cell counters use either direct imaging or electrical impedance to determine the number of cells. 

As a life science tool, cell counters are used in medical diagnosis, cell therapy, and microorganism research. Specifically for cancer patients, getting an accurate white blood cell count is vital to figuring out what the correct course of treatment should be. Another example is the importance of an accurate somatic cell count in the testing of the quality of milk. Stains such as trypan blue are often used to mark the specific cells that they need to count.

Cell Counting Techniques, Benefits, & Price

Automation vs Manual
Learn MoreShow Less

Hemocytometer is a popular technique for manually counting cells. Though initially less expensive than an automated cell counter, manual cell counting has a slew of disadvantages. The main difference that an automated cell counting system has compared to a manual one is speed. Automated counting machines can get an accurate count of cells significantly faster than a human. Another important differentiation is accuracy. Manual counting methods suffer from human error, whereas automated counting systems do not. Though the initial cost of a hemocytometer may be lower, once you factor in possible data errors and the additional labor involved, automated cell counters are the superior choice.


Coulter Counters

Coulter counters employ the Coulter principle to both count and size particles. Also known as electrical zone sensing, or resistive pulse sensing, these counters are able to count the number of cells that pass through a microchannel. While suspended in electrolytes, the cells pass through the microchannel, causing the liquid’s electrical resistance to drop. By measuring when these drops occur, one can count the exact number of cells that have passed through the channel.


Viability Count

Depending on the work that you are doing, having a count of not only the number of cells, but also the number of living cells in a culture is important. Specifically, this information is important when studying various bioprocesses. Cell viability measurements are also used in cytotoxicity assays to determine the effectiveness of some drugs. Though several methods exist, one of the more popular ones involves using Trypan blue dye to mark and differentiate dead cells from live ones.


Complete Blood Count (CBC)

A person’s blood can tell us a lot about their health. Infections, cancers, and other diseases can be detected by monitoring specific changes in a person’s blood cell count. The very first blood count was performed in 1852 by Karl Vierordt when he counted individual cells under a microscope. Fast forward to today, where doctors are able to get extremely accurate and detailed reports about a person’s blood in a fraction of the time it took Karl. Hemoglobin, hematocrit, and white and red blood cells are a few of the important results that are included in the test. The use of automated cell counters allows doctors and researchers to perform these tests accurately within a matter of minutes.

We Offer Automated Cell Counter Leases to Fit Every Need

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.


If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
