The Cell Lab Quanta SC MPL is the latest flow cytometer provided by Beckman Coulter. It is a fusion of the flow cytometry and the Coulter Principle. It can simultaneously measure 3 fluorescence colors, side scatter and Coulter Volume. This system gives research customers the ability to simultaneously measure 9 different parameters, volumetric cell counting, fluorescence concentration, fluorescence surface density, etc.
It is also a fusion of the flow cytometry and the fluorescence microscopy. For maximum flexibility, the system comes equipped with a 488nm laser and a mercury arc light source for 366, 405 and 435nm excitation.
The MPL module is designed to allow samples to be aspirated from various types of plates and delivered to the Quanta SC for analysis. Plate types include: 24, 96, and 384 well and can be flat, round, square, shallow and deep. In addition to a plate, up to 8 Vi-Cell sample cups can be loaded on the side of the plate loader for either samples or staining reagents.
We will introduce features and applications of the Cell Lab Quanta SC MPL.
