The Cellaca™ MX utilizes Nexcelom's innovative cellular analysis technology for accurate cell sample concentration, viability and morphology measurements.  Features of the Cellaca™ MX include:

  • Brightfield and Fluorescence image cytometry
  • Cell Viability analysis using trypan blue OR fluorescent dyes
  • 24 samples imaged and processed as quickly as in 48 seconds
  • Only 25 µL cell sample required
  • 4 excitation light sources with 5 emission wavelengths for detection
  • SBS plate format
  • Automation-ready for robotic integration

According to Nexcelom CTO, Dr. Jean Qiu, the company is focused on enabling highly accurate cell counting at fast speeds in order to help accelerate other technology advancements. One such application is single-cell RNA sequencing to compare transcriptomes of single cells in determining disease mechanisms. A critical factor for successful high-quality, single-cell data is the quality of cells and the cell number per experiment. It is important to not only know the cell number and health but also...

Fast analysis for cell count and viability, using a very small amount of sample, makes Cellaca™ MX suitable for droplet-based single-cell transcriptome analysis, utilized to analyze primary samples from human and animal models.

Dr. Kristie Barth, an Immunologist at Evelo Biosciences, commented "The Cellaca™ MX has dramatically reduced sample processing time for our ex vivo preparations.  What used to take us 5 people and 7 hours, now takes us only 3 people and 4 hours to process the samples, count the cells and plate them for downstream assays.  Not only has the Cellaca™ MX saved us time and increased our efficiency, but it also has improved our sample quality.  Cells no longer sit on ice waiting to be counted, making the data output for our proteomic, genomic, and flow cytometry applications more accurate."
