The Swiss Flow Cytometry School hosts a Cytoflex S.


The Cytoflex S is the latest research machine released by Beckman Coulter. The machine is equipped with 4 lasers (405, 488, 561 & 638 nm) and can deal with up to 13 different colors for a roughly 50 x 50 cm footprint. The addition of the 561 yellow green laser really boosts PE and PE tandems signal.

The machine’s optical system is really impressive with avalanche photodiodes (APD) instead of PMT’s. The Cytoflex performs as good or even better than the Navios/Gallios machines. Nicolas also liked the ability to measure SSC on the violet laser to improve detection of smaller objects. No doubts this machine will become a hit.
