Nexcelom's Cellometer is an automated cell counter, which allows us to count cells, determine viability, measure cell sizes, etc. all with a click of a button in less than 30 sec. This set up will improve data quality, and provide additional data such like cell sizes and cell images, which can ultimately improve the research quality.

B) Next Advance Inc.'s Bullet Blender BLUE
