  • To isolate and sort different cell types from organs and tissues.
  • To provide a fast and quantitative measurement of intra- and extracellular properties, including genotype variation of a particular type of cell.
  • To get quick and accurate immunological information of patients. immunophenotyping analysis of lymphomas, leukemias, and congenital immunodeficiencies; monitoring CD4+ T-lymphocyte counts.
  • DNA content analysis for prognosis of malignancies and screening of hematologic disorders.

High performance analyzer cum cell sorter, Fiber optics light path-Both for lasers and Emission, 6 lasers, 2 physical (Forward Scatter and side scatter) and 9 fluorescence detectors.

Utility and Working Principal

It works depending upon the light scattering features of the cells, which may be derived from dyes or monoclonal antibodies targeting either extracellular molecules located on the surface or intracellular molecules inside the cell.
