Flow Cytometry is the measurement of single cells as they flow one by one past laser beams with the resulting light scatter and fluorescence emission detected and analyzed. Multiple biophysical properties of each individual cell can be measured at rates of thousands of cells per second. Cells are identified by their staining with fluorescent dyes that bind directly to specific constituents like DNA, RNA, proteins or ions or with dyes conjugated to molecules like antibodies, lectins, or hormones that bind to different cellular structures. Cells may also be identified following an infection or tranfection by marker fluorescent proteins. Flow Cytometry can detect and analyze multiple fluorescent staining simultaneously in each individual cell and can report and physically separate them by these qualities.
The Stratedigm S1000EXi flow cytometry platform is a complete cellular analysis system consisting of a flow cytometer with up to 4 lasers, it employs rugged, modular design architecture for maximum versatility and high-performance typically found in high-end systems, but in a small, light-weight, bench top package.
The data speaks for itself. The Stratedigm S1000EXi is a future-proof investment—its integrated and modular-design ensures that the architecture is functionally open-ended and that upgrading is economically attractive.
Given the diversity of applications, dyes, and labels available today, and the promise of even more tomorrow, the ability to customize your cytometer to your research needs is essential in today’s cost-constrained environment. In a range of colors…all of them green. Stratedigm designers and engineers keep the environment at the forefront of their design process: the product uses 1/3 less sheath fluid and 75% less power than the market leader. Lower part counts mean that the lighter, smaller package results in a lower shipping impact while the software optimizes energy efficiency and increases laser life by throttling down power usage when the instrument is idle.
