The CytoFLEX LX Blue-Red-Violet-Yellow Green-Ultraviolet-Infrared (B-R-V-Y-U-I) Cytometry Series incorporates excitation sources from ultraviolet 355 nm to infrared 808 nm alongside the existing Avalanche photodiode detectors (APD). This allows researchers to utilize the periphery of the visible spectrum. The CytoFLEX provides powerful analytical performance in a compact, benchtop instrument. It leverages the effective use of Avalanche photodiode detectors to deliver the instrument’s advanced sensitivity. They work in conjunction with the different lasers, detecting the light emitted from the cells after excitation. The addition of the new ultraviolet laser further expands the applications available to researchers.
