The Flowsight© is the ‘little brother’ of the ImagestreamX, combining the speed of flow cytometry and resolution of microscopy. It contains a single 20x maginifcation lens, best-suited for cell-wide studies rather than focussing on internal probes. It can image and quantify signals from up to 12 fluorescent probes and 5 lasers, at a resolution of 1-2μm2. Despite its internal complexity, the program is extremely easy-to-use with guided “wizards” or stream-lined workflows, enabling the user to get the most data possible out of his/her sample.
Resolution down to 1-2μm2 are possible at a cell-reading rate of over 10000 cells/second
The resultant files of acquired data can be read via the IDEAS software or other 3rd-party software
Automatic fluidics-checks and calibrations are run every time the system is activated, allowing the user to prepare the experiment rather than worry about the system being prepared for work.
Any lab that requires large counts of cells analysed in a short period of time
Any lab currently stuck with a lack of statistics for unique or extremely rare populations
