- Small sample volume
Smaller sample volume means less cell depletion, letting you maintain your cell culture volume. Vi-CELL BLU requires a sample volume of only 200uL, less than half the volume required by the previous Vi-CELL XR model and lower than our competitors instruments.
- Faster processing
Vi-CELL XR was already a fast automated cell counter. With the updated technology in Vi-CELL BLU, processing and analysis times are cut significantly. Choose from Normal mode—which includes full cleaning after processing—or FAST mode when cleaning isn’t required.
When using the 96-well option, Vi-CELL BLU saves over 1 hour of processing time compared to the previous XR instrument. Process in FAST mode and save nearly 2 hours.
- Stronger instrument-to-instrument correlation
Each Vi-CELL BLU instrument is finely calibrated to ensure instrument-to-instrument comparability. With instrument-to-instrument variation less than +/- 10%, you can trust that your measurements will be accurate, no matter which Vi-CELL BLU instrument you turn to in your lab.
- Ease of use
With Vi-CELL BLU, you can load your samples and walk away. With the instrument’s streamlined controls, your workflow remains the same
