  • Application Area:Cell biology

"This instrument is really compact, and easy to handle and use. The main reason why I really like to use this product is because of its analytical power and multi-functionality - from cell signalling, to biomarker detection, to cell proliferation, cell cycle and apoptosis analysis - this can do it all. However, the accompanying software isn’t the best, but it is free to use and does the job. "

  • Application Area:Immunology and Microbial diseases

"This is the product to use if you look at only two colors. Acquisition is easy. Easy to get used to the machine. Customer service is great. Easy to use and easy to maintain. Cons: FlowJo software compatibility is not great. It is not as easy as with the other BD flow machines where you transfer data and use it. There are linear to log conversion issues. I have had trouble analyzing calcium flux data on FlowJo software after acquisition on this machine."

"Very user friendly and easy to analyze data. Will do everything but sort. The only issue is that the SIP is prone to clogging. As long as your cells are properly prepared you will be fine."

  • Application Area:Cell cycle analysis

"It's easy to use and simple to analyse. I use propidium iodide to make sample and it's easy to run cleaning fluid. It does, however, use a large volume of cleaning fluid to run the cleaning cycle."

"The equipment is robust and very user friendly. Even though it is a 'table cytometer' we use it almost 24/7 and we've never had technical problems. The fact that it is PC compatible is also a plus."
