Scepter Hand-Held Cytometer

  • Automated, impedance-based counting without the error that accompanies vision-based systems
  • Accurately count cells in the 4-25µm diameter range
  • In addition to cell concentration, the Scepter screen displays a histogram showing the size or volume distribution of the cell population
  • On-screen instructions will walk user through assay, step by step
  • In less than 20 seconds (on average) the Scepter cytometer will display all the data needed regarding the culture
  • After the count is complete, use the toggle button to move from one histogram to another, manipulate, or gate counts
  • See into the health and quality of cell culture from one preparation to the next
Scepter Sensor
  • Has a precision drilled aperture through which cells pass and are counted based on the Coulter principle of impedance changes across a current established by sensor electrodes
  • Ensures reproducible counts by drawing precisely 50µL of sample into its liquid handling microchannel each time
  • Eliminates pipetting errors and uneven sample loading that can occur
  • Able to count cells between 4 and 25µm in diameter, as both 60µm- and 40µm-aperture sensors are available
Scepter Software Pro
  • Compare several samples and data sets side by side using histogram overlay and multiparametric tables
  • Save and create gating methods to be used from one experiment to the next
  • Create attractive graphical presentations and reports with data
