Beckman Coulter Cytoflex Cytometer







Beckman Coulter CytoFLEX Cytometer is a compact benchtop flow cytometer for research use. CytoFLEX flow cytometer can acquire up to 8 parameters on a single sample excited by the 488nm and 638nm lasers, up to 6 fluorescence colors, plus forward and side scatter data channels. It can be upgradable adding a 405nm laser and up to 13 fluorescence colors in the future.

CytoFLEX Cytometer uses the sample peristaltic pump to take sample and calibrates sample volume delivery for absolute cell counts without using beads. It can process samples at flow rate between 10 uL and 240 uL per minute providing high sensitivity and adjustable flow rates.

The CytExpert software provides 7 decade of data display and the event collection rate can be up to 30,000 events/second.

Sample Input Format: Single tube loader format - 5mL (12x75mL) polypropylene tubes, Microcentrifuge 1.5mL and 2mL tubes
