Mission Bio recommends using either automated cell counters, such as Countess II, or manual counting.
Automated cell counters used by our customers
- Countess I, II (Thermo Fisher)
- TC-20 (Bio-Rad)
- Vi-CELL (Beckman Coulter)
- Cellometer (Nexcelom)
- Luna (Thermo Fisher)
- Scepter (Millipore)
Alternatively, cells may be counted manually using a hemocytometer and inverted microscope.
Note: When using automated cell counters, ensure that the cells are in focus to quantify the total number and viability accurately. Incorrect focus/contrast settings may lead to incorrect cell/viability counts.
