The Accuris QuadCount™ improves on the simple technique of brightfield microscopy by utilizing an LED light source, precision optics and a high-resolution CMOS detector. A finely tuned, motorized XYZ positioning stage provides for extra fine focusing and the ability to capture multiple images.
With count speeds as fast as 20 seconds per sample, the Accuris QuadCount™ provides many advantages over the tedious and time consuming manual hemocytometry method. The advanced software eliminates human bias in dead/live determinations, reduces counting errors, saves time, and improves efficiency.
The QuadCount™ utilizes a unique 4-chambered disposable QuadSlide™. Four samples can be processed in one slide (twice the capacity of standard 2-chambered slides), decreasing consumable costs. Each chamber has a hydrophilic inner surface with an engraved grid pattern. High precision production and molding ensure that each QuadSlide™ meets the rigorous standards and dimensional tolerances required for optimal counting performance.
3 count modes available to analyze different sample volumes:
- Quick Code: 0.15uL/20 seconds (1 image frame)
- Normal Code: 0.9uL/30 seconds (6 image frames)
- Precise Code: 3.6uL/ 100 seconds (24 image frames)
- Pixel resolution: 2592 x 1944
