Thanks to a collaboration between SmiLe Incubator and the instrument company ChemoMetec A/S, life science companies now have the possibility to run their own cell samples in a state-of-the-art cell counter at SmiLe's open labs. The cell counter will be avaliable at SmiLe for one year.


SmiLe Incubator has the privilege of being part of a sponsorship program run by ChemoMetec A/S. As a result, Chemometec has now placed its instrument NucleoCounter® NC-202 ™ at SmiLes Open Labs for one year. The instrument provides very fast and robust analysis responses, even at high cell densities, and will be available to SmiLe members and other companies.


“Through the collaboration with ChemoMetec, we can offer start-up’s as well as other companies access to a very advanced instrument. We are delighted to be able to supplement our other instrumentation in the laboratories in this way. The ability to use fully equipped labs - including infrastructure and support from specialists - can be important for companies in their development”, says Ebba Fåhraeus, CEO of SmiLe Incubator at Medicon Village in Lund.
