The Countstar BioMed combines a 5 megapixel sCMOS color camera with our patented “Fixed Focus Technology” equipped full metal optical bench. It has a 5x magnification objective integrated to acquire images in high resolution. The Countstar BioMed measures simultaneously cell concentration, viability, diameter distribution, average roundness, and aggregation rate in a single test sequence. Our proprietary software algorithms have been tuned for sophisticated, and detailed cell recognition, based on the classic Trypan Blue exclusion staining method. The Countstar BioMed is capable of analysing even small eukaryotic cells, such as PBMCs, T-lymphocytes, and NK cells.
Technical Features / User Benefits
Combining technical features of all Countstar bright field analyzers, using an increased magnification, enables the operator of the Countstar BioMed to analyze a wide range of cell types found in biomedical research and process development .
