Highly complex flow cytometry analysis
Beckman Coulter Life Sciences continues to expand the multi-parameter capabilities of its CytoFLEX flow cytometer technology. Its latest model, the CytoFLEX LX, with up to six lasers and 21 fluorescence channels, delivers more parameters with the same fluorescence sensitivity and nanoparticle detection demanded by high-end researchers. The CytoFLEX flow cytometer was introduced two years ago and now offers 47 configurations through one of three series of systems: CytoFLEX, CytoFLEX S, and now the CytoFLEX LX.
With the CytoFLEX LX series, the platform’s innovative excitation and detection capabilities meet the high-content needs of researchers interested in up to 23 parameters of cellular analytical measurements. The CytoFLEX sets new standards of fluorescence sensitivity by minimising light loss, so even dim populations can be detected easily. It can measure as low as 10 molecules of fluorescence and measure particles as small as 0.2 µm in size.
A new version of Beckman Coulter’s CytoFLEX acquisition software, CytExpert Version 2.0, has also been introduced and is available on the new CytoFLEX LX series. The software’s workflow and tools simplify setting up complex flow cytometric applications.
