Merck Millipore guava easyCyte 12 flow cytometer

Wednesday, 04 February, 2015 | Supplied by: Merck Pty Ltd

Merck Millipore offers the guava easyCyte 12 flow cytometer, a simple and powerful benchtop method for multicolour flow cytometry. The system has been shown to detect particles as small as 0.2 μm, which is said to be a significant improvement over typical flow cytometers.

The increase in performance gives researchers better sensitivity and resolution for their experiments. Improved sensitivity provides better separation, making gating and identifying dimmer populations easier. Resolution down to 0.2 μm opens up different application areas, particularly for researchers analysing small particles and beads, as well as studying bacteria or algae.

The flow cytometer uses three excitation lasers to detect up to 12 parameters simultaneously, including 10 fluorescent colours, plus forward and side scatter for size and granularity determination. The upgraded lasers and scanning technology reduce channel bleed-over and improve resolution.

Single- and multisample processing options are offered, and high-throughput analysis is possible with robotic sample trays that automatically handle 96-well microplates and up to 10 sample tubes. The platform is said to consume less sample, generate less waste and be easier to maintain than traditional systems, enabling researchers to save time and money while conducting comprehensive cell analysis.

The system, capable of detecting mammalian and microbial cells and beads, offers an intuitive interface for every laboratory budget. A sample of fluorescently labelled cells is aspirated into a microcapillary flow cell, which eliminates the need for sheath fluid and provides absolute cell counts. The flow cell is self-aligning and user-replaceable, reducing downtime and service visits.
