The Millipore Guava EasyCyte Flow Cytometer uses patented, microcapillary, laser-based technology capable of detecting both mammalian and microbial cells and beads. A sample of fluorescently labelled cells is aspirated into a uniquely proportioned microcapillary flow cell. Forward and side scatter characteristics are detected by photodiode, and fluorophores excited by the blue laser emitted signals that are spectrally filtered to resolve up to 10 fluorophores simultaneously.
The Guava easyCyte 5 Flow Cytometer from Millipore is the base to an automated, desktop cell analysis system that can perform cellular and assays. A blue laser allows you to analyse fluorescence, as well as forward and side scatter. It accommodates individual microcentrifuge sample tubes. Use the guava InCyte software module to acquire and analyse data. InCyte is an open software package, which you can also use to analyse FCS 3.0 data files acquired from any Guava software module. Guava InCyte application templates are available for all FlowCellect assays. The templates provide the plots, parameters, analysis tools (Methods), and statistics for each application.
The easyCyte 5 was designed for easy operation in addition to minimal maintenance. The power switch, sample loader, and waste and cleaning solution vials are the only instrument components that you will routinely handle, and most of your interaction is through software that you can download from the internet via your laptop.
The guava easyCyte 5 streamlines cell phenotyping, drug discovery, and cell culture monitoring and screening by providing turnkey assays for a wide range of cell-based applications.
