The NBTC has two pieces of equipment for assisting with cell counting:
Orflo Moxi-Z Cell Counter
- Accurate, repeatable, fully automated results in 8 seconds
- Complete, high-resolution cell size/count histogram
- Post-processing/analysis of count distributions with user-adjustable/gates
- Assesses cell viability without the need for staining
The Moxi-Z employs non-reusable microfluidic cassettes in its measurements. The NBTC charges $5 per cassetts (2 measurement ports per cassette).
A hemacytometer is a tool that enables biological researchers to manually determine the number of cells in a given volume of fluid. The NBTC has a hemacytometer, coverslips, and phase contrast microscope in the mammalian cell culture room.
