Customer Testimonials


Our Cellometer Auto T4 is easy to use, quick, and provides comprehensive information about our cells, such as cell counts for alive and dead cells. Having used a manual hemacytometer in the past, I am very pleased with the Cellometer Auto T4.

We use the Cellometer X2 to develop assays to measure protozoa and bacterial cell counts.

I am working with PBMCs, and this product makes it much easier to count the living cells while it automatically separates the undesired cells and analyzes them. Meshell Hardy -Cognate Bioservices

The Cellometer X2 has provided me with reliable counting that has standardized our cytotoxicity assay and maintains consistency across various users. Previously, I was using a hemacytometer for counting our human cell lines, which would often give me intense headaches from staring into a microscope for long periods of time. This is no longer a problem with the Cellometer X2! I would reccommend this product to anyone who needs reliable cell counts for mammalian cell lines.

The Cellometer is much faster than manually counting and more accurate! It is very user-friendly, which also makes it great for our new hires in the lab.

We use the Cellometer Auto T4 for counting leukocytes in single cell suspensions of mouse skin. This machine is a great addition to our lab, as leukocytes are too small of a population to manually count via hemacytometer. The counts are quick, reliable, and have sped up our isolation process for a number of applications. We are very satisfied with this product. Michael Podolsky -Penn State University

The Cellometer Auto 1000 is the best automatic cell counter because it always counts the cells consistently and accurately! Margarete Hafley -UT MD Anderson Cancer Center

I have been using the Cellometer Mini for over 2 years now and its works fantastically! It is quick and efficient for getting cell counts for my cell culture experiments.

We were originally using the Cellometer Auto T4 system for cell count and viability and it made our cell counts quicker than when using a hemacytometer! But now we have upgraded to the Cellometer Vision CBA, and the focusing time is almost on par with a conventional microscope and with the extremely useful fluorescent cell counting. This system will probably outlast the computer we use to operate it! Reinaldo Agostini -University of Puerto Rico

Before our lab moved, we were utilizing the Cellometer Vision CBA from Nexcelom. The capabilities of this machine are amazing. The Propidium Iodide (PI) staining for cell cycle analysis was the function we used most frequently. This helps remove the need for a large volume of cells like flow would require. Since our cell lines were going into arrest after our manipulations, we were unable to generate large quantities of cells for traditional flow. The Vision CBA fit perfectly for our needs. Now, we use the Cellometer Mini due to financial constraints when our lab moved. It is still a great instrument, but if given the chance, I'd 100% without a doubt go back to the Cellometer Vision CBA. There's too many things it can do to pass it up! Amy Rosado -Nemours Children's Hospital

I like the disposable cell slides because there is no need to clean up afterwards, it just goes into the bio waste bin. Overall, we are very satisfied with the Cellometer counter.

My name is Dylan Armes, and since getting a Nexcelom Cellometer my day-to-day work in my lab has become significantly easier. I used to use a different counter, but the ease of use of Nexcelom slides is MUCH more convenient. I primarily use the counter to determine total cell volume in a sample for easier distribution on microscope slides, and it works perfectly for that purpose. It's quick, accurate, and very easy to use. Dylan Armes - Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute

We love our Cellometer! More time for experiments, less time counting your cells. And no more sore thumbs or annoying hemacytometers.
A scientist from the University of Colorado

The Cellometer has provided a much faster and more accurate means of counting all our 100's of samples which we need to set up for flow cytometry analysis. We also are able to take images and go back and check things later if there are any discrepancies which is very useful as well.
Dr. Janice Pluth - Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory

My work has improved tremendously. Counting 10 samples by trypan blue used to take 30 mins and left strain on the eyes. Results were inaccurate. Now (the samples) take about 6 minutes with the Cellometer and are accurate and reliable.
Rakesh Sharma of MD Anderson Cancer Center

Great machine! Counts cells fast! Saves my time and eye sight!
Senior Scientist at a Research Lab in Boston

Great machine. I like the fact that you can see which cells are counted. I have introduced (Cellometer) to other people around the lab and they all like it. Now we are using it every day.

(Cellometer) relieves the heave work of cell counting, improves the efficiency of counting.

Just as the Nanodrop changed spectro photometry - forever - in the lab, so has the Cellometer revolutionized cell counting in the tissue culture room. No more Hemacytometer! We also like our Sales Representative, Grace Vick, she is always there for us!!

Counting all of our Insect cell cultures used to take half the morning; now, with our Nexcelom Cellometer, I'm ready to start passaging in just 20 minutes! Thank you! With the added information of average cell diameter, I am able to more accurately predict when my Baculovirus stocks are ready to be harvested. Since the Cellometer is so easy to use, we are sampling our cultures at several additional points in our process, which has improved troubleshooting of process issues. The Cellometer has helped us to cut costs by enabling us to detect failed (virus amplification and protein expression) cultures earlier in the process. Thank you Nexcelom!

We bought the Auto T4 in 2007 and love it! I'm able to seed multiple experiments of multiple cell types in such a short time. We told other labs how much we liked it and another bought the newer version of the T4 and others buy the slides and use ours. Thanks!
Denise Hegan, Yale University

It makes counting so much easier. No need to use the hemacytometer! You can still see the cells and do live counts. Great for counting many samples.
Senior Scientist from Boston Scientific

Having this device has streamlined our cell culture work very much. Instead of only being able to count 2 or 4 cell samples at a time, we can set up as many as we need, and have the Cellometer count them. It's much more accurate than hemacytomer counting, and much faster, which is a bonus when we have 15 transfection samples to count! We have a fluorescence capable model, and using it to determine the percentage of transfected eGFP cells is quick and easy, and doesn't entail tedious slide staining on our part. We couldn't live without our Cellometer!

Not only is the Cellometer good for counting cells but we also use them to count our MFIA beads. It gives us a more accurate count of the final yield and also cuts the amount of time spent on counting in half.
- Nhu Thao Le from Charles River Lab

I do at least 10-15 (PBMC) samples a day or at a time and it used to take almost 1 hr now with Cellometer it takes almost 8 minutes for all the samples. That's quick, easy and results are fantastic and this spares my eyes a headache. Thanks, Rakesh Sharma

Very useful tool for a cell sorting core. We use it to verify the drop delay setting, troubleshoot sorts by looking at cells for debris or dying cells, double check yield of cells from sorts, and help determine what settings are appropriate to perform a sort.
- Biologist from Harvard Medical Center

Actually being able to visualize overall clumpiness of cells is a major help, using our other cell counter can tend to miss a good majority of cells if they tend to aggregate more. - Biologist from Eisai

The Cellometer is very easy to use and yet is a powerful tool to have in the lab. In addition, the software interface is very user friendly. - Biologist from Bristol Myers Squibb

My company has 2 Cellometers. We rely on them every day to get a quick and accurate count on the many cell lines we have in culture. It is very reliable, low maintenance and saves us so much time vs. hand counting, so we can do our cell work more efficiently. It's a great product. - Tina Glyptis from Forma Therapeutics

Cellometer has saved me precious time, especially when dealing with experiments that are time point dependent. - Deepak Nagendra from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine

The Auto T4 is a fantastic machine that saves our lab a lot of time! It is simple to use and small. - Dr. J. W. Hodge, Senior Scientist and Director, Recombinant Vaccine Group, NCI

I like that this one does not require any other material other than the slides. - Jim Bensen, Tissue Culture Facility, Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

"I will never use a hemacytometer again" - Jeff Ross, Research Investigator, Eisai Research Institute

"Before the counter it took a long time to count and put strain on our eyes. Now it is quick and very easy on the eyes" - Adam Wiles, Rebecca Shoemaker, AIDS Vaccine Program, NCI

"Using the Auto T4 has greatly increased the efficiency and ease of counting cells in our lab, especially on high volume sample days. It is the only counter that consistently works for non-human primate applications"
- A scientist, National Cancer Institute

"Before it would take 2-3 hours to count-now less than 20 minutes" - A scientist, National Cancer Institute

"Eye strain was a big problem before the counter. It is much faster now and eliminates the eye strain"
- A scientist, National Cancer Institute

"I've used hemacytometer before. It can never get accurate nor consistent cell concentrations. At one time, when I need to estimate the cell doubling time, this counter really helped because I have to deal with multiple cell counting from replicate samples" - A scientist, National Institute of Health

"This is the product I have always dreamed about!" - A researcher, National Institute of Health

"This is such a simple machine to use that it saves us a lot of time." A scientist, Wyeth
