User Feedback on Cellometer K2

The Cellometer K2 has drastically changed our work flow in the lab. We are able to gather cell counts in minutes rather than waiting overnight for colonies to grow on plates. It also cuts down time in the prep of plating and error in plating/counting. The amount of time that the machine has saved us is incalculable - it has allowed us to move projects along much more quickly and with confidence. - Cami Anderson, Synlogic
The Cellometer K2 is always reliable, we use it daily for our cell culture counting and viability assays. The one time we had some questions about it, Nexcelom's customer service team knew exactly how to fix it. Great service!
With the Cellometer K2, I like the ability to fine tune individual parameters to modify cell counts if there is an error. The overall use of the machine is great. It has allowed me to gather data in a more high throughput fashion.
I am currently using the Cellometer K2 in our lab, mostly to count T cells, PBMCs, and tumor cells. I use them for cell culture, and later the cells are used for further assays like ELISA and FACS. The instrument is very accurate, especially with AOPI.
We have been using the Cellometer K2 for about 2.5 years. It is very convenient and robust. The service and technical support are also great. -Yalin Guo, ImmuNext Inc
The Cellometer K2 instrument is a simple, quick, visual cell counting platform. We love the clear images and easily discerned confirmation that the cell count data is real because you can see the count for your own two eyes. It has allowed us to move away from difficult flow cytometer and subjective hemocytometer methods.
The Cellometer K2 has helped us reduce our counting time when we have many samples to count. Side-by-side comparison with manual counting has verified its accuracy. It is easy to use with no routine calibrationso startup time is not an issue.
Transitioning to the Cellometer from our previous method using Flow Cytometry, has been smooth and efficient with the help of the great team at Nexcelom. The software is very user friendly and the instrument is maintenance free. I would highly recommend the Nexcelom Cellometer K2 to other facilities looking to use image-based cell counting systems.

More Praise for Cellometer

Makes cell counting fast and easy! Disposable slides are so much easier to use than a conventional hemacytometer.

The Cellometer is very useful - it saves us an immense amount of time. We use it every time we plate. Thanks for a great product!

The Nexcelom Cellometer increased the amount of cell samples I could count in a day, increasing the amount of data points I could derive. Additionally the sheet of viable cells/non-viable cells, cell diameter etc. was extremely helpful. I used the Cellometer for counting SHSY-5Y cells. - Kaeli Freeborough, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

I love the simplicity and user-friendliness of the instrument. I learned how to count cells on a hemocytometer, which was tedious and required too much precious time. Not to mention, the hemocytometer and coverslips were extremely easy to break which, added up to a lot of replacement costs. With the Cellometer disposable slides I don't have to worry about any of that, and the computer does the counting and math for me. In addition, I love being able to adjust the settings so that it can count smaller cells such as immune cells. Sometimes, we have samples that have immune and/or cancer cells mixed in with red blood cells, and being able to gate out the rbc's through size is a convenience that I am extremely grateful for.

With Cellometer it is really easy and quick to visualize our cells and perform counting. Cellometer also enabled us to read RFP and GFP Taransfected cells very quickly - Neha Bhise, University of Florida

We are using Cellometer to do cell count and RFP, GFP readings. It is very easy to find transfection efficiency of transfected cell lines using Cellometer. Saving time in cell counting also. Very fast and gives dilution calculations, that is also a very good tool. - Lata Chuhan, University of Florida

The Cellometer has been one of the best equipment buys in a long time.  Very efficient and accurate for our purpose and it fits perfectly in our TC room and on top, it is very easy to use.  The lab is very happy with the machine.

The Cellometer instrument has made counting cells and assessing viability fast, accurate and very easy to do. I am able to keep better track of my cells because of it
