Guava Technologies EasyCyte Plus Flow Cytometer

Overview:

The Guava EasyCyte™ Plus System provides absolute cell counts and has six parameters (4 fluorescent colors, 2 light scatter) and a blue laser for access to commonly used fluorescent dyes.
It also offers a fourth color option, which, when combined with the built-in 96-well autosampler, offers the ability to complete more complex biological sampling.  The system can also monitor the interplay of up to four different biological mechanisms simultaneously to improve the efficiency of experimental outputs.  This has the capability to shorten the number of iterations for an experiment and it closer mimicks the complex biological responses within the body.
The system can run all Guava Assays and can simultaneously monitor extracellular and intracellular events.
