Compare specifications

The Cell Metric™ is currently available in three variants:

  • Cell Metric™ – standard version for lower-throughput cell line development, confluence screening, proliferation rates, cell-based assays
  • Cell Metric™ CLD – specifically designed for cell line development
  • Cell Metric™ rapid – highest-throughput version with robotic integration

The right system for you depends on your your workflow, your throughput requirements, your goal and your budget.

The table below compares the specifications of the three versions.
