Flow cytometry

Flow cytometry allows the differentiation and separation of cells depending on their size and morphological characteristics. The measure consists on passing individualized cells through a channel which is transversely illuminated by a laser. The light scattering properties of each cell provide information about the cell size and its complexity.

NovoCyte® is a benchtop flow cytometer capable of detecting up to 17 parameters with enhanced sensitivity and resolution.

The system offers a high degree of flexibility while providing complex cell analysis capabilities.  

Automation of fluidic parts allows to minimize the analysis times as well as simplify procedures.
