HemocyTap is the perfect companion to count cells using a hemocytometer. Count live & dead cells, calculate the cell density, viability & new culture volume, save and send your data via email and plot the evolution over time!

Do your thumbs get tired after tally-counting cells?
Do you feel stupid when you miss the button of the calculator and you have to start all over again?
Do you wish you could have all your counts in a .csv file without typing them yourself? And have it sent instantaneously via email?

•*NEW!* Choose to count the big squares or the small squares inside the central square
Calculating:
