Flow Cytometer, Reagents Simplify Sample Prep
Beckman Coulter’s Navios flow cytometer is intended for immunophenotyping in conjunction with proprietary Navios tetra software and CYTO-STAT tetraCHROME reagents. The flow cytometer incorporates 12 detectors—10 fluorescence detectors and two light scattering detectors.
Simultaneous measurements of integral, peak and width are available for all scatter measurements and up to 10 fluorescent parameters. Ready to use, pre-optimized CYTO-STAT tetraCHROME reagents make sample preparation easy. A no-wash protocol reduces sample handling and increases laboratory safety. The tetra system, for simultaneous identification and enumeration of T, B and NK lymphocytes in whole blood, provides an easy-to-use solution for multicolor flow cytometric analysis of lymphocyte subsets, as well as CD4+ and CD8+ T cell subsets ratios. Instrument software reports cellular characteristics such as size, granularity and phenotype, and combines data in one automated, customized report with plots and formulas. A variety of reporting options are available. Easy integration with a variety of automated preparation devices and LIS-readiness offers secure, high-throughput results, even at the highest volumes.
