Nexcelom Resources and Applications
The Nexcelom Cellometer Vision CBA Analysis System allows the user to quickly acquire imaging data for a variety of standard assays. Your multi parameter imaging data can now be easily analyzed in FCS Express and expanded upon using all of the tools and features FCS Express has to offer.
Additionally FCS Express is compatible with the Celigo plate based analysis system so you can easily visualize and report your plate based screens using the high content features in FCS Express.
Please see the resources below if you need helping claiming an FCS Express license from your Nexcelom purchase, if you would like to download standard analysis layouts, or if you would like to view some common application examples.
Every purchase of the CBA Vision instrument comes with 2 licenses of FCS Express. A countercode license that is locked to the vision instrument PC and a portable dongle license that you may use on any PC. To get started with your licenses you must first claim and configure them to your own user account. Detailed instructions for the claiming and configuration process are available in our Customer Claim and Configuration Instructions.

Cellometer Vision was developed to count total cells and identify FITC-annexin-V positive apoptotic cells based on the microscopic and fluorescence characteristics of the cell sample. Detection typically takes less than 60 seconds and only requires 20µl of cell sample. Cell images and all analysis data, including cell size distribution histograms, can be saved for documentation. Data can also be easily exported to FCS Express Image Cytometry for further analysis.
Cellometer Vision addresses the need for simple, rapid fluorescence cell counting. By capturing both brightfield and fluorescent images from the same cell sample, Vision can determine the total cell concentration and analyze how many of those cells are expressing GFP. Therefore, using only 20µl of cell sample, researchers can now rapidly identify fluorescence positive cells from a sample, analyze individual cell fluorescence intensity, calculate cell concentration, size and determine the GFP transfection rate in minutes on the lab bench.
Cell viability is routinely tested in cell culture laboratories and used in many assays such as cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, and tumor killing activity. Reliable and accurate viability testing can also be done using propidium iodide (PI), a fluorescent dye. Cellometer Vision was developed to automatically count total cells and propidium iodide fluorescence labeled dead/dying cells for fast, simple PI viability determination.
