Automated Cell Counters Information
Automated cell counters are devices that tally, measure, and describe populations of biological cells. This data is determined by either an electronic or optical mechanism. Electrical analysis relies upon a Coulture counter, which accounts for the resistance of the cells to a current when placed in an electrolyte solution. Optical analysis measures the reflection of cells in a given area when passed in front of a laser beam; software then provides an estimation of the cell count. These medial devices are typically found in medical labs, and represent a crucial innovation in medical diagnoses due to its efficency when compared to manual counters.
