The NucleoCounter® YC-100™ is a yeast cell counter used to measure the total cell count and viability of yeast cells in suspension. With its high precision and accuracy the NucleoCounter® YC-100™ is perfect for those who wants a true quality product being both maintenance and calibration free.
The YC-100™ consists of a camera and an integrated fluorescence microscope designed to detect signals from the fluorescent dye, propidium iodide (PI) bound to DNA. Results from the YC-100™ represent either total or nonviable cell concentration, depending on the sample preparation.
The YC-100™ can be connected to a PC using the USB port on the rear. It must be noted that all calculations, cell counting and data analysis is performed in the YC-100™ which is a true stand-alone instrument. The transfer of image data to a PC provides the user with additional documentation and options.
