Vi-CELL BLU Cell Viability Analyzer

The Vi-CELL BLU automates the widely accepted trypan blue dye exclusion method for cell viability that has historically been performed with a light microscope, pipette, and a hemacytometer. This makes it perfect for large-to small-scale cell viability/counting applications in many fields including biopharma and academia.


 Additional enhancements incorporated in the Vi-CELL BLU include:

  • Fully automated sample preparation, analysis and post-run cleaning
  • Small sample size
  • Fast sample processing time
  • Small laboratory footprint
  • Flexible sample introduction – carousel or 96 well plate
  • User-friendly reagent system
  • Cell viability reported in percentage, concentration, and cell count
  • Large sample capacity
  • Data integrity tools

Vi-CELL BLU: The workflow you know—now with increased efficiency

User-inspired design

When it was time to design the new Vi-CELL® BLU cell viability analyzer, we started by talking to customers. Vi-CELL BLU retains the functions and workflow of the Vi-CELL XR that users like and trust, while updating the technology, improving processing speed and making the new Vi-CELL BLU easier to use…all in an instrument with a smaller footprint.

Users told us what they want and we listened:

  • I want faster analysis and processing time.
  • Having a 96-well plate option will help our workflow… but we still want the option to use a carousel.
  • I want to be able to use any Vi-CELL in my lab and trust its answer.

The new V-CELL BLU meets these customer demands and more.

Small sample volume

Smaller sample volume means less cell depletion, letting you maintain your cell culture volume. Vi-CELL BLU requires a sample volume of only 200uL, less than half the volume required by the previous Vi-CELL XR model and lower than our competitors instruments.

Faster processing 

You asked for faster analysis and processing times. We answered.

Vi-CELL BLU processes samples faster because the images are captured while fluids are in motion.

Vi-CELL XR was already a fast automated cell counter. With the updated technology in Vi-CELL BLU, processing and analysis times are cut significantly. Choose from Normal mode—which includes full cleaning after processing—or FAST mode when cleaning isn’t required.

When using the 96-well option, Vi-CELL BLU saves over 1 hour of processing time compared to the previous XR instrument. Process in FAST mode and save nearly 2 hours.

Stronger instrument-to-instrument correlation

Each Vi-CELL BLU instrument is finely calibrated to ensure instrument-to-instrument comparability. With instrument-to-instrument variation less than +/- 10%, you can trust that your measurements will be accurate, no matter which Vi-CELL BLU instrument you turn to in your lab.

Designed for ease of use

Improved reagent pak

Users asked us to make loading the reagent easier. Now there’s no more handling tubes. With Vi-CELL BLU, just slide in the reagent pak and go.

The design of the Vi-CELL BLU reagent pak is improved, too. Self-contained, with 310 activities per kit, it includes an RFID chip to let you keep count of how many tests have been run, along with the lot number and expiration date.


The Vi-CELL BLU XR offers flexibility, allowing you to easily switch between the 96-well plate and carousel. Simply remove the carousel to access the plate holder.

Load and go

With Vi-CELL BLU, you can load your samples and walk away. With the instrument’s streamlined controls, your workflow remains the same:

  • Load the sample
  • Log in the sample
  • Obtain your results

Single-use controls

The Vi-CELL BLU utilizes single use controls when calibrating. When changing cell sizes, drop the control in and run the calibration with:

  • No mixing
  • No pipetting
  • No worrying about the last person to use the control

Calibration Controls


  • 2x10^6 (2M)
  • 4x10^6 (4M)
  • 1x10^7 (10M)


  • 50% viability


  • 10 micron NIST size beads

All your reagent needs in a convenient package

We’ve improved the Vi-CELL reagent pak to make it faster and easier to use. The Vi-CELL reagents you know and trust from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences are now packaged in a convenient ready-to-load kit. Simply open the instrument reagent panel and slide in the reagent pack. Each pack can be used for 310 activities before changing—that allows for about a weeks’ worth of testing in most labs. 

Packs are easy to replace with no mess. Say goodbye to wrangling with tubes and splattering dye when you change out reagents. Your lab coat will thank you! 

Each pack also includes an RFID tag that tells you how many activities are remaining. No more guessing on remaining reagent amounts or running out in the middle of a critical series of tests. 

Vi-CELL BLU reagent pack features:

  • Self-contained and convenient: All the reagent elements are packaged together in a single unit.
  • No more tangled tubes: Slide the pack into the instrument and the system does the rest.
  • RFID tracking on each pack: The embedded RFID tag gives important information about each pack to your Vi-CELL BLU instrument: lot number, expiration date, on-board life (90 days), activities remaining
  • Replacement is easy: Simply slide out the used pack and insert a new one. No need to handle messy dye.
  • No more cardboard packs: The new reagent pack is made of recyclable plastic and easy to wipe down in clean room situations.
