Vi-CELL BLU Cell Viability Analyzer

The faster Vi-CELL BLU cell analyzers automates the Trypan Blue Dye Exclusion method for cell viability analysis. The Vi-CELL BLU expedites processing by now having the option to use a 24-position sample carousel or a 96 well plate for sample delivery.

Additional enhancements incorporated in the Vi-CELL BLU include:

  • Fully automated sample preparation, analysis and post-run cleaning
  • Small sample size
  • Fast sample processing time
  • Log-in samples on the fly
  • Single sign-on with Active Directory
  • Small laboratory footprint
  • Flexible sample introduction – carousel or 96 well plate
  • User-friendly reagent system
  • Cell viability reported in percentage, concentration, and cell count
  • Large sample capacity
  • Data integrity tools for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
