CellaVision DC-1® analyzer Digital cell morphology assessment



CellaVision DC-1 analyzer combines high-power microscopy, digital imaging and AI-based image analysis. Through identification of the monolayer, location of individual cells, and capture of high-quality images, the analyzer provides a pre-classification of cells for convenient on-screen review.


Enhance efficiency Automatic pre-classification of cells can help you shorten testing time, while improving resource utilization.


Promote quality Automated microscopy testing enables standardizing the procedure to deliver more reliable and consistent results, while achieving greater level of traceability and quality control.


Impel proficiency Access to reference cell images provides a tool for staff training and competency development.
