Our lab has purchased the Cellometer X2. We found that counting yeast cell cultures is very fast and accurate, especially since we can change the parameters. For example, we can change cell counts based on cell size. Also, there is an option of declustering which is exceptionally helpful for yeast cultures that are arrested at the G2 stage of the cell cycle, which is necessary for many of our experiments. - Cynthia Sakofsky, NIEHS
We are very happy with our new Cellometer X2! We are pleasantly surprised to find the accompanying laptop already loaded with the necessary software upon purchasing it. Nexcelom customer service has been excellent as well!
We have four Cellometer X2 units, all in different labs and locations. I trust that they give us comparable results, which is invaluable for ensuring consistency of our fermentations and products across locations!
Our Cellometer X2 cell counter makes counting cells easier and less time consuming! Also, the unit is reliable and needs little to no maintenance. It just always works well! - Sarah DeLorenze, Two Roads Brewing Company
Our Applications Scientist helped establish mammalian cell counting protocols for the Cellometer X2 as well as the Cellometer Auto 2000. Both instruments have made cell counting amazingly simple and accurate for live dead cells. We appreciate the training!
The Cellometer X2 is working great to count beads size 3-5 microns. We are also using it to count beads that are 50um in diameter and the numbers are extremely accurate. Our local Applications Scientist from Nexcelom was very thorough for the training process and really helpful in establishing relevant protocols.
Our team likes the ease of use that the Cellometer X2 offers us! Our cell counts are able to be completed clearly and efficiently.
Our local Applications Scientist from Nexcelom did a great job of setting up our new Cellometer X2! He showed us the AOPI dye method - which we have never used before. We now look forward to using this due for more accurate assays and optimizing the SOP to suit our needs. Thanks Nexcelom!
The Cellometer X2 is very has fast and easy to use! It has saved a ton of time versus counting by hand. Training new people is a breeze, too. Nexcelom's support team has been extremely helpful with any questions or issues as well! - Robin Mead, Oskar Blues Brewery
Our Cellometer X2 has made cell counting quicker, faster and easier by allowing us to perform more cell counts and improve our pitch rates at the brewery! - Molly Eveleth, Swamp Head Brewery
The Cellometer X2 is the perfect instrument for your daily cell counting needs. It is very easy to operate so training others and passing along knowledge is a breeze. While the images are very useful and give us precise counts, they also allowing us to see how our yeast is flocculating. - Alec Dvoretsky, Two Roads Brewing Company
The Cellometer X2 device has made cell counting and viability assessment a breeze! In a production brewery environment where accurate yeast cell counts and viabilities are essential to creating the perfect beer, the Cellometer X2 system makes the process simple and accurate without complex training or additional equipment. Compared to the traditional microscope and hemocytometer, the X2 system and software are easy to use, easy to interpret and simple to adjust. I would recommend this system to any brewery! - Tom Boudreau, Stone Brewing
The Cellometer X2 is an easy to use, reliable cell counter. Made our life in the lab way easier! We are very happy with our Cellometer X2! - Veronique Grenier, Maui Brewing Co.
We have just received our brand new Cellometer X2! We are looking forward to seeing how we can manage fermentation using the X2!
The Cellometer X2 is an oustanding machine for applications. We love it and use it often! It is user friendly and easy to use for the students. We also have published data with the machine.- Sumi Dinda, Oakland University
The Cellometer X2 has significantly improved our proccess for enumerating our cultures without having to wait 2-3 days for plates to grow. Along with the yeast viability dye, we are able to get both concentration and viability of our cultures in less than an hour, including performing dilutions!
I like how the images can be saved for reference on the Cellometer X2! - Raymond Furman, MGPI of Indiana, LLC
We use the Cellometer X2 to develop assays to measure protozoa and bacterial cell counts.
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 X2 has increased the throughput for my mammalian cell counting applications tremendously. Before, I was using a hemacytometer for counting cells, which was very time consuming, and it gave me a headache! But now, I can count my cells quickly, which gives me more time to do other tasks. Thanks Nexcelom!
Our new Cellometer X2 has cut the time we spend on cell counts drastically, freeing up time for much more. The transition was very easy, the software is a piece of cake to learn and the support is excellent! -Josh Weaver, Westbrook Brewing Company
The Cellometer X1 is easy to use, accurate and fast. And to perform viability and total cell count in 1 step is fantastic. -Jim Elliott, Captain Lawrence Brewing
The Cellometer X2 has made our daily cell counts and cellar reports much faster and easier. The software interface and sample prep is easy to perform and give consistent, reliable data. - Joe Wells, Hangar 24
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
