As a life science tool, cell counters are used in medical diagnosis, cell therapy, and microorganism research; anywhere cell types, particles, and even small organisms must be counted and/or sized.
That’s because determining cell concentration is highly important in any field that relies on cells. And automated cell counters are devices that allow physicians, researchers, and scientists to do just that: perform an accurate cell count. Doing so lets them 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, and speed up image analysis while reducing count inaccuracy by allowing you to upload your images based on the modality of your choice.
Besides the medical field, where physicians require an accurate count of blood cells to figure out the correct treatment for a cancer patient, another example of where accurate cell count is of extreme importance is in the dairy industry. Dairy farmers need to know how healthy their cows are because healthy cows will be able to fight off things like infection more easily, in turn producing more milk. To determine a cow’s health, a dairy farmers relies on a somatic cell count (SCC).
In order to perform this measurement, stains such as trypan blue (TB) are used to mark dead cells in a sample of milk. By diluting the sample with the stain, live cells and dead cells can be differentiated from, and the SCC of the cow can be measured. Dilution with TB is effective because it can only enter cells with compromised membranes (live cells have an intact cell membrane, and therefore TB cannot penetrate the membrane).
Cell Counting Techniques, Benefits, & Price
Counting cells is a necessary step in maintaining cell cultures and preparing cells for experiments or downstream applications, and is an important subset of cytometry. Depending on whether you’re using automated or manual methods, this step can either be a very tedious or a very simple task. Let’s compare automated and manual methods and cover some of the benefits of cell counting.

We Offer Automated Cell Counter Leases to Fit Every Need
Whatever your financing needs, Excedr has you covered. If you work in a field of study that relies on cell count or viability and are interested in leasing an automated cell counter, electroporation system, or any other equipment needed to perform your work, call us at +1 888-927-3802 or fill out our contact form. We can discuss your exact equipment leasing needs in further detail.
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.
