Flow cytometry (FC) is a technique used to detect and measure physical and chemical characteristics of a population of cells or particles. In this process, a sample containing cells or particles is suspended in a fluid and injected into the flow cytometer instrument.
A flow cytometer has five main components: a flow cell, a measuring system, a detector, an amplification system, and a computer for analysis of the signals. In general, for the analysis, single-cell suspension must first be prepared.
Our compact benchtop FC has two light sources can be used for applications in healthcare, microbiology, quality control or others. Absolute counting of cells, cellular subsets and other particles is performed in real-time on a volumetric basis.
The instrument is highly versatile and can be equipped for most applications in cell and particle analysis and absolute counting. Our instrument detects forward and side scatter signals using two laser lines (488 nm and UV).
