Side Scatter Measurement and Additional Fluorescent Channel for Flow Cytometry, Beckman Coulter
Beckman Coulter Inc. introduced Cell Lab Quanta SC, the second in its new family of affordable flow cytometers for drug discovery and basic clinical research. The Quanta SC combines side light scatter detection and a third fluorescent channel with Coulter volume measurement in order to deliver accurate, multiparameter cell counting and sizing. Up to five parameters can be studied at once on the new system. The additional fluorescent channel and the side light scatter capability enable users to measure cellular granularity for simple three-color immunophenotyping applications.
Because the system also incorporates Coulter volume measurement, users can carry out sensitive antigen density studies, critical for understanding apoptosis processes in more detail. Quanta's multiple excitation wavelengths, including UV and laser light sources, allow flexible fluorochrome selection for a variety of multicolor analyses. Quanta SC is offered with a powerful 488-nm laser diode for fluorescent and side scatter analysis as well as a mercury arc lamp for use with UV-excitable dyes. The Quanta SC analyzes a variety of cellular types including mammalian, yeast and bacteria in research applications such as cell cycle, apoptosis, cellular enumeration and sizing and basic immunophenotyping.
