European Researcher Wins Green CellDrop Giveaway

Jul 27 2023

Michiel Schrijen from Wageningen University, Netherlands, has been announced by life science products manufacturer DeNovix as the winner of its Green CellDrop Automated Cell Counter Giveaway. Selected at random from thousands of entries from scientists worldwide, the CellDrop will be housed in the Biosystematics Group at the university.

The Green Edition CellDrop, which was awarded Sustainable Laboratory Product of the Year by SelectScience, features DirectPipette™ technology, a sample loading method that eliminates the need for disposable plastic slides typically required for routine cell counting.

“We’re delighted that Michiel was selected to receive the Green CellDrop,” said Andrew Jones, Market Development Manager at the Wilmington, US-based company. “The group’s work investigates and supports biodiversity, so the CellDrop’s slide-free innovation will be a perfect fit for enhancing their research workflows.”

“For the Biosystematics Group, the CellDrop will be an excellent addition for both research and education,” Michiel noted. “We investigate evolution at the species, population and molecular level to address fundamental questions about themes like speciation, domestication and species interactions.”

The new cell counter will aid in the University group’s biodiversity research by providing an environmentally friendly and automated method for assessing yeast viability, counting algae cells and more.

 “A great advantage will be that the CellDrop doesn’t use slides. This will save us a large amount of glass and plastic slides waste,” Michiel said. “The WUR University focuses on a sustainable future and the CellDrop will help reduce laboratorial waste instead of creating more.”
