The BioProfile FAST CDV is a fully automated viable cell density and viability analyzer.

Nova Biomedical’s BioProfile FAST CDV is a high-throughput, fully automated viable cell density and viability analyzer. The device uses trypan blue dye exclusion methodology for determination of live and dead cells, as well as a high-resolution camera/optics to provide cell density and cell viability measurements.

The analyzer is capable of producing results in less than 70 seconds with 100 µL of sample volume. It also performs all sample dilutions internally, which allows cell culture samples up to 140e6 c/mL to be analyzed without external sample dilution. The device can sample cell cultures via an external 36-position loans-and-go tray or via a 96-well plate option.

The software associated with the device has a built-in touch screen display and icon-based navigation. Its software and networking capabilities are 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 11 compliant and have also been designed to meet FDA’s new cybersecurity guidelines.
