Flow Cytometry Automation
Increasing the Processivity of Flow Cytometry
High-throughput flow cytometry has become an integral part of drug discovery efforts with applications in phenotypic screening, ligand binding assays, monoclonal antibody screening and biomarker discovery. The integration of the multi-parametric CytoFLEX flow cytometer increases sample throughput allowing faster processing of high complexity assays.
We now have two solutions with which to pair your CytoFLEX, depending on your throughput needs.
Automation Assistant for the CytoFLEX Platform
The integration of the multi-parametric CytoFLEX flow cytometer to the Automation Assistant increases sample throughput allowing faster processing of high complexity assays. The Automation Assistant feeds plates, from a plate hotel, to the CytoFLEX and can hold up to (72) plates on the deck for acquisition. The flexible, user-friendly Automation Assistant software allows plate shuffling & STAT sampling as well as real time monitoring of sample acquisition. This versatile walk-away system improves workflow and can be customized to incorporate additional instrumentation including a second CytoFLEX, an incubator and bar code reader.
Fully Integrated Hands-free Cytometry Workflow
A fully integrated hands-free cytometry workflow which incorporates all processing steps including sample preparation through data analysis can be accomplished by integrating the CytoFLEX cytometer to a Biomek i5 or i7 workstation.
Finishing the Workflow
This workflow is further simplified by using the LUCID dry reagent plate format for antibody cocktails and data analysis using the Cytobank cloud computing software platform. These building blocks of a fully integrated system utilizing the Biomek i5/i7, the CytoFLEX, LUCID dry plates and Cytobank software will allow the user to walk away from time consuming laboratory tasks.
