Take Your Cell Counting and Viability Analysis to the Next Level of Accuracy: Precision in Every Decision

Discover a fully automated and fast solution for your sample processing & analysis.

The Vi-CELL BLU analyzer automates and optimizes cell count and cell viability analysis, reducing sample processing time to as little as 2 minutes per sample.

With its improved optical system, the Vi-CELL BLU analyzer features strong instrument-to-instrument comparability, helping you to compare cell counting, concentration and viability data across your development process leading to more robust decision making.

With flexible sample loading options, including a 24-position carousel, 96-well plate, or integration into an automation system, the instrument adapts to your needs.

This analyzer is perfect for large-to-small-scale cell viability/counting applications in many fields, including biopharma and academia. The Vi-CELL BLU analyzer requires only 200 µL of cell suspension. It comes with a ready-to-use plug-and-play reagent package which virtually eliminates the risk of contamination from hazardous materials.
