EVE™ Automatic cell counter
Automatic cell counter
The EVE™ uses state-of-the-art optics and image analysis to automate cell counting. It is a benchtop counter, designed to measure cell count and viability (live, dead, and total cells) accurately and precisely, using the standard trypan blue technique.

- Trypan blue staining
Trypan blue is a vital stain used to selectively colour dead tissues or cells blue.
It is a diazo dye.
Live cells or tissues with intact cell membranes are not coloured. Since cells are very selective in the compounds that pass through the membrane, in a viable cell trypan blue is not absorbed; however, it traverses the membrane in a dead cell. Hence, dead cells are shown as a distinctive blue colour under a microscope. Since live cells are excluded from staining, this staining method is also described as a dye exclusion method.
