Arthur fluorescence cell counter utilizes a precision disposable microchip which eliminates problems associated with permanent counting chambers and tubing. Each microchip is designed for single use. The disposable Arthur fluorescence cell counting slide enables analysis and counting of assays for cells in suspension, including GFP and RFP expression, apoptosis, cell viability (live, dead, and total cells), cell cycle, and cell counting assays. Pumping, cleansing, and waste collection is not required as with conventional automatic cell counters. Also, the risk of exposure to potential hazardous materials, such as patients’ blood samples, is completely eliminated with disposable chips. Each microchip is produced in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, pre-sterilized, individually packaged, and is validated for accuracy.
