CellDrop: Sustainable Laboratory Product of the Year:
Count Cells Without Slides
The CellDrop Automated Cell Counter has been awarded Sustainable Laboratory Product of the Year in the SelectScience® Scientists’ Choice Awards®! CellDrop’s patented DirectPipette™ technology distinguishes it as the only cell counter to eliminate the need for cell counting slides. This innovation has already saved over 10 million slides from use and disposal, which equates to about 35,000 kg (77,000 lbs) of plastic.
DarkReader: Safe Blue Light for gels instead of ethidium bromide.
