The The Beckman Coulter Vi-CELL Cell Viability Analyzer automates the widely-accepted trypan blue cell exclusion method for cost-effective and efficient processing. Designed for laboratory use, this simple-to-operate model simplifies labor intensive procedures to deliver accurate and precise cell concentration reports. The Vi-CELL analyzer provides the high resolution necessary for accurate results on yeast and other small cells.

This automated Beckman Coulter Cell Viability Analyzer is programmed to perform the trypan blue with video imaging of the flow-through cell, delivering results in minutes. This data is vital to the decision making process for basic tissue culture cell passage and the maintenance of optimum culture conditions in bioreactors.

Cell and tissue culture applications in life science research including recombinant protein and biopharmaceutical production require the accuracy, precision and automation solely offered by the Vi-CELL cell viability analyzer.
