Corning® Cell Counter | Automated Cell Counter | Corning

Time-saving Technology using the Power of the Cloud

For years, the choice between manual and automated cell counting has been a difficult one. Manual cell counting can be accurate, but time-consuming and user-dependent. Automated cell counting is much faster and less user-dependent, but the cost of disposable counting slides can be an issue. A tough choice, but now there is an affordable solution.

The Corning Cell Counter is the first automated cell counter that combines the best of both worlds. It is:

  • Evolving – periodic, seamless upgrades, added features, and improved functionality.
  • Accurate – thanks to its cloud-based machine learning algorithm.
  • Improved resolution – ability to accurately count as small as 4 µm (e.g., PBMC).
  • Low-cost – works with common reusable glass hemocytometers. No consumables required.
  • Fast – thanks to its online image processing.

Other Advantages

Easy to use – The Cell Counter is easy to use. Simply connect the Cell Counter to your computer or tablet and start the CytoSMART Cloud App. Place the loaded counting chamber on the stage. Focus on your cells and press the Count button. The simplicity of the Cell Counter allows anyone working in your lab to easily count cells without the need of extensive training.

Accessible Data Anywhere, Anytime – With the Corning Cell Counter summary reports are instantly generated with every count; exportable on your computer and automatically saved to the CytoSMART Cloud, enabling you to access the analyzed images and cell counts remotely on your smartphone, tablet, or computer without running out of storage space. Since all data is saved in the CytoSMART Cloud, you can gain insight into the health and quality of your cell culture from one experiment to the next by batch exporting all the counts in your specific research experiment.

Requirements to use Corning Cell Counter:

  • Windows 10 Tablet or PC
  • High speed internet/cloud access
  • USB 3.0 Port
  • Mammalian cells 4 to 70 μm
