August 23, 2012, Lincoln, NE: LI-COR has teamed up with ChemoMetec to be a distributor of their new automated cell counter, NucleoCounter® NC-200™. LI-COR will also be offering consumables that support the NC-200, as well as consumables that support another ChemoMetec instrument, the NC-3000™.
The NucleoCounter NC-200 is the latest model from ChemoMetec. It has an integrated fluorescence microscope with dual fluorescent channels designed to detect signals from cells stained with acridine orange and/or DAPI. The NC-200 allows the user to perform automated cell counting and analysis of a broad range of eukaryotic cells.
"We are happy to bring the latest cell counting technology to our customers," says Sabra Miller, LI-COR marketing product specialist. "The NucleoCounter NC-200 offers complete reproducibility and ease of use with true objectivity."
The NC-200 improves upon the NC-100 by offering a viability cell count in one step with only one cassette, whereas the NC-100 requires two separate cassettes.
