Bio-Rad TC10



The TC10™ cell counter is an automated device that provides a total count of mammalian cells and a live/dead ratio in one simple step with accurate, reproducible results. Count cells prior to cell culture or before starting processes and analytical techniques that require an accurate and consistent number of input cells. The TC10 automated cell counter helps you avoid the tedious task of counting cells with a microscope and hemocytometer which produce varying results. The TC10 automated cell counter uses multifocal plane analysis to assess cell viability. And, it demonstrates accurate cell counts of viable cells and across a range of cell concentrations and cell sizes.
