Traditional flow cytometry can be hard to master, sometimes requiring an expert user to help with setup and data analysis. Whether research involves cytokine profiling or cell cycle analysis, the average flow experiment can take up half a day, if not longer.
The Sartorius’ iQue Advanced Flow Cytometry Platform enables flow cytometry without bottlenecks, with walkaway automation, comprehensive analysis, and visualisation tools, in a simple, scalable, multi-user environment.
It has a focus on speed from setup, to acquisition, and analysis. The entire experimental workflow, from plate sampling to actionable insight is streamlined and fast, using iQue reagent kits and the integrated and comprehensive Forecytsoftware. Its fast plate sampling, integrated analysis, multiplexed no-wash assays, and novel data reduction tools, are designed to relieve capacity bottlenecks.
The platform enables researchers to acquire and analyse the high content multiplexed assays needed to assess immune cell function by combining multiplexed analysis of cells, beads and secreted proteins for cell immuno-phenotyping, cell health, and secreted protein (cytokine) analysis, in every well of a microtiter plate. Characterisation of disease states and developments in understanding of how single cells respond to a stimulus, such as a small molecule, antibody, cytokine, or other entity, are achieved. Simultaneous quantitative measurements and assessments of multiple biological readouts is accomplished for multiple cell types.
Importantly a non-flow cytometry specialist can easily simultaneously measure phenotypes and cytokines in the same well. This ability to multiplex experiments, provides biologically relevant data from only a few microliters of sample. Find more information at: https://www.sartorius.com/en/products/flow-cytometry
