Accuri Cytometers, Inc. launched the CSampler, an optional accessory that adds automation to the Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer System, a product designed to bring flow cytometry analysis to the laboratory of every life science researcher.
The automation capabilities allow researchers to streamline their operations and conduct more research using flow cytometry saving time and effort. CSampler handles both plates and test tubes and is easy to install and operate, while costing less than other automation systems.
CSampler allows all steps from sample preparation to flow cytometry analysis to be done in the same 96-well plate. CSampler is smaller than and sells for about half the cost of other flow cytometry automation systems. Its specially designed software, CFlow Sampler, makes CSampler easy to set up and operate.
The addition of CSampler extends the utility of the C6 system to the thousands of laboratories requiring automated multi-well plate analyses. The Accuri CSampler is compatible with 48- and 96-well microplates and deep-well plates, and also comes with a 24-tube rack for standard 12x75mm test tubes. Users can run multiple experiments in a single plate and apply settings to specific wells or the entire plate, with the ability to construct templates. Accuri’s polar-coordinates approach enables CSampler to move faster between distant wells than conventional automation systems, and its small, user-installable platform self-aligns. CFlow Sampler software also includes a “Priority Interrupt” function allowing users to interrupt a run and process samples that have to be dealt with immediately, then replace the plate and resume the original run where it left off.
