  • Application Area: Analyze extracellular vesicles

"Cytoflex S allows an easy way to analyze extracellular vesicles (EV) with its impressive 405-SSC and fluorescence sensitivity. Using beads for calibration, it's able to detect 80um beads without problems, but this is not the real thing, as we know. The real thing is to work with biological particles of known size (defined by other technique, DLS, Nanosight or EM) and use them as size standards. We use phages as standard (from 50nm to 150 nm) and Cytoflex S is able to discriminate them from noise easily, therefore, allowing us to analyze EV without problems. It's fluorescence sensitivity lets us detect low epitope EVs. Also is possible to differentiate by scattering of different EVs populations. Its use is very simple, can use 96 well plates, the software is very straightforward and the price, keeping in mind that is a 4 laser/13 fluorescences instrument, is very competitive."

Versatile and sensitive.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Flow cytometry

"The CytoFlex has won me over! I was a little sceptical of voltage free detectors, but the users have found this so easy to use, that I realise that I may have been a bit conservative in my own mind. The biggest bonus has been the increased sensitivity which has increased the ease of analysis through being able to discriminate weak positive samples. Another key change for us is the ability to use it for single tubes or for plates. In a multiuser core facility, this has increased the user base significantly and results in long sessions using the plate loader freeing up the user to carry on with other research. Indeed, they often add the plate at the end of the day, go home ad then collect the data in the morning. We bought the 'S' and then followed up with 5 'LX' systems which are now distributed across East Africa for a collaborative study, with one remaining at York ad already become the most user system over all others."

An essential equipment for any biological research facility.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Expression of surface markers

"The Cytoflex we use present 4 channels through the use of one laser. This allows us to detect the fluorophores, FITC, PE, Cy7, Cy5.5. Compensations on this machine are very intuitive and can be achieved fairly easily. reproducibility is not an issue as all our error bars are minimal."

Reliable instrument for most flow cytometric assays.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:fluorescent measurement of labelled cells

"The Cytoflex is a benchtop flow cytometer with a small foot print. This is a highly sensitive instrument as the detectors are based on APD (avalanche photo diode) technology. It is easy to set up and students can start using it within an hour of training. The data acquired is compatible to most third party data analysis software suppliers. I would highly recommend it to a teaching or research lab. "

Love it, probably the best purchase I made for the lab
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Flow cytometry

"We have owned one for just over a year, cost ~$50k for a two laser, 5 color system with plate loader. Very easy to use, quick to set up in just a few minutes and at least as sensitive as our core's FACSAria III. Filters are easily replaceable if you have a specific application but works great out out of the box. I can have members of staff trained on it in just a few minutes. Minimal downtime so far, mainly from poor cleaning as the manual does not have a clear daily startup and shutdown protocol. I would recommend buying a multiple probes and peristaltic tubing as these are the only consumables. We love it, use it daily, and I would buy it again. The software is a hybrid of Diva and FlowJo and produces reasonable quality images so no subsequent analysis required."

Excellent results, comparable with high end Flow Cytometers
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Antibody and Dye staining of Cells

"We have used the cytoflex for over a year both for human and mouse cells. Along with standard surface staining of blood and bone marrow cells, we have undertaken studies of phospho-flow signalling, cell cycle, apoptosis, ROS measurements, apoptosis and viability and genetic reporter expression (GFP, YFP, dsRed) "

  • Application Area:microvesicles analysis, microbiology applications, immunophenotyping, plant ploidy

"Cytoflex is the new flow cytometer of Beckman Coulter portfolio. Is very easy to use it because software is really user friendly. The instrument can be used after 15 minutes of the parcel arriving. Its sensitivity is amazing and it is very versatile, it can be used for microvesicles analysis, microbiology applications, immunophenotyping, plant ploidy and many more applications. Normal configuration is 3 lasers (405, 488, 640 nm) and 13 fluorescence detectors. Also can be equipped with a plate loader (but it needs some improvements). Its price is very affordable for such a high value instrument. It has almost no maintenance. "
