Fast acquisition, versatile and easy data analysis.
Application Area: Natural products screening
"We use the cytometer for general purposes and, specifically, to run high throughput screening assays for antibiotic and antifungic activity of natural products. It can run plates of 12 up to 384 wells, and even you can define 12-48 eppendorf tubes acquisition setup, meaning that it's very versatile. The speed of run depends on the target, the cell type, the number of events to acquire and the viscosity of the natural product to test (the washing steps between wells, increase). In normal conditions 96 well plate, acquiring 10000 events per well takes 35 minutes in our hands, with less than 0.11 of carryover. It allows us to run libraries of hundreds of compounds per day. The system is robust, and the technical service is very good, keeping the instrument in its best shape. As analysis software we use Flowlogic, that provide fast plate analysis and easy lead detection. MACSQuant X worth its price."
Engineered from the ground up as a compact flow cytometer, the MACSQuant® X was made to provide speed and reliability in high-throughput screening. It allows you to get more data, in less time, with less effort. Perfect for laboratories that want to maximize efficiency, while enjoying the certainty of getting reliable results from every tube, 96- or 384-well plate. The MACSQuant X has been designed to meet high-throughput cell analysis needs for the most challenging large-scale screening settings.
Simplified data analysis tools
Express Modes are unique add-on features for the MACSQuantify™ Software. They are standardized data analysis tools that are optimized to automate flow cytometric measurements and analyses via predefined experiment settings, acquisition, and automated gating. Derived from mathematical algorithms, they reduce human error and therefore increase experimental reproducibility.
