|Description|| Accuri's C6 Flow Cytometer System is a full featured, two laser, six detector analytical flow cytometer system including: the C6 Flow Cytometer, CFlow Software, and a PC for operation and analysis. The C6 Flow Cytometer System provides all the capabilities of the best selling flow cytometers at a fraction of the price. The C6 Flow Cytometer System has six detectors to capture both forward and side scattered light as well as four fluorescent detectors, each with user selectable optical filters. |
The operating software is designed to make data collection and analysis fast and painless. In fact, CFlow is so intuitive that you will be up and running within an hour of receiving your Accuri system.
Unparalleled dynamic range of 6 decades obviates the need for adjustable gain or voltage settings on the detectors. No gain settings mean it is possible to collect data quickly and analyze later without concern of ever losing data.
The fluidics system of the C6 Flow Cytometer is an entirely new approach in two ways. First the user can control both the speed of the sample uptake and the diameter of the core stream. This allows the user to "dial in" the optimal core size for their sample-large for mammalian cells, small for yeast, and very small for bacteria. Second, the C6 Flow Cytometer fluidics system actually meters the sample fluid uptake so it is simple to obtain absolute counts, or sample concentration. In fact, CFlow automatically calculates the events per microliter for every run.
The C6 Flow Cytometer is programmed for automatic decontamination and cleaning of the fluidics system. Pressing the power button to turn off the instrument triggers the C6 Flow Cytometer to automatically run Decontamination and Cleaning fluids through the fluidics lines. The Cleaning fluid will remain in the fluidics lines until the instrument is turned on again by pressing the power button. When powered on, the C6 Flow Cytometer will automatically flush the fluidics lines with sheath fluid prior to reporting that it is ready for a sample.
The C6 Flow Cytometer does not use a pressurized fluidics system, so it is very tolerant of the type and brand of sample tube used. The C6 Flow Cytometer can accommodate several types of tubes, including any brand of 12x75mm tubes and most microcentrifuge tubes.
The C6 Flow Cytometer System is designed to fit easily into any lab. The cytometer is a bench top instrument that requires less space than a small microwave (17.3"W x 16.3"D). At less than 30 pounds it is easy to reposition as needed. No other cytometer packs so much analytical power in so small a package.
