Automated cell counter is equipment that automatically counts number of dead and/or live cells in a culture. Certain automated cell counters used for urinalysis and several for blood analysis. The blood or urine sample is filled into an automated cell counter, it is passed through a small tube whereas the automated cell counter uses electrical or optical impedance sensors to count number of cells going through the tube. Several researcher working in a cell culture hood requires some type of cell counting solution, either to analyse cell concentration before cell passage, or to measure cell viability following drug treatment. Used in research and medical labs, automated cell counters can be used on urine or blood samples to analysis the types and to observe the viability of a cultured cell or number of cells present for research purposes. Features differ between the various automated cell counters, including quantity and cell types it can analyse, sample size required, data management, and whether or not it can distinguish between live and dead cells. The utmost significant feature considered to select a cell counting solution is the capability to assess cell viability. Electrical impedance mostly cannot differentiate between live and dead cells (except by size); however imaging-based methods can differentiate between live and dead cells, by using trypan blue for staining dead (but not live) cells, same as classic hemacytometry. Automatic cell counters are based on several principle, the coulter principle which is further based on electrical conductivity or radiofrequency, optical scatter, light absorption, fluorescence. VCS Technology (volume, conductivity, and scatter) and hydrodynamic focusing: Both optical and impedance methods of cell counting employ hydrodynamic focusing (focused flow)
