Olympus R1 Specifications

Features of the Olympus R1 Automated cell counter

The R1 includes a sophisticated algorithm for accurate counting of clustered cells and identifying live or dead cells.

Adjustable parameters to exclude unwanted particles

The average size of the cells varies depending on cell type. The maximum and minimum cell size can be adjusted to correctly detect the desired cells. In addition, the counting result can be displayed as a histogram based on the size distribution, which helps when analyzing only cells in a certain size range and for excluding undesired particles.

Protocols for routine procedures

Each detection parameter can be modified to fit the sample conditions. Up to 300 specific protocols can be easily saved and reloaded, which helps to obtain quick counting results for routine procedures.

Automatic Dilution calculator

By setting the desired concentrations, the dilution calculator automatically calculates the volume of cell suspension needed, which makes for a quick transfer to the subsequent procedures.

Efficient Counting without Trypan Blue Staining

The Cell Counter can quickly count and present the total number of cells in a sample without Tryptan blue. When an approximate proportion of live/dead cells in the sample is known, the number of live cells can be roughly estimated, allowing for a faster procedure.

Data Management

The Cell Counter automatically stores up to 1,000 counts. The data can then be exported as a CSV file. Also, the counted results and image data can be stored as a TIFF, an annotated TIFF, or a PDF report file. Moreover, these data can easily be transferred to other storage devices through the USB ports equipped with the Cell Counter.

Reporting

The report files can be obtained easily, containing the protocol used, the cell count results, the corresponding raw/ analyzed cell images, and histograms. There is no need to write down detailed settings for each cell count. Also, on the review mode, various reports can be viewed all at once on the touchscreen, including the numbers of live/ dead cells, average cell size.

User friendly design

Designed with usability in mind, the Cell Counter comes as a standalone automated cell counter with a steady operation platform. The stability of the large touchscreen at the lower part of the Cell Counter makes it possible to easily and smoothly count cells, view data, and print the results.
