High Performance Flow Cytometry for Quality and Reliable Results
NovoCyte® is a high performance benchtop flow cytometer designed for all levels of users and all types of laboratories. This budget-friendly instrument is capable of detecting up to 15 parameters with enhanced sensitivity and resolution. The customizable laser and optical configurations of NovoCyte offer a high degree of flexibility while providing complex cell analysis capabilities.
The NovoExpress® software facilitates easy and intuitive sample acquisition and analysis. Automation of multiple fluidic functions eliminates cumbersome and time consuming procedures. User hands-on time is minimized by the flexible NovoSampler® Pro which can automatically analyze samples in single tubes, multi-tube racks, or 24-, 48-, or 96-well plates.
Provides 107 dynamic range for signal detection and processing, offering a broader signal range than other flow cytometers. Wide range of fluorescent and scattering signal intensities eliminates the need for complicated and laborious PMT voltage adjustment. Data acquisition is just load-and-go.
Customizable selection and upgrade with lasers of different wavelengths allow for personalized, versatile choices of fluorochromes for flow cytometry assays. User interchangeable filters and dichroic mirrors broaden available fluorescence channels to expand users’ detection options.
Customize the instrument to meet detection needs with blue, red and violet laser options. System can be upgraded as analytical requirements increase – no need to purchase another instrument. State-of-the-art solid-state lasers provide high quality and extremely stable optical illumination.
Patent pending independent beam shaping optics and light collection system maximizes signal detection efficiency, increasing sensitivity and resolution for each fluorescence channel. Fixed optical alignment removes need for daily maintenance and adjustment of optical system, providing convenient operation and superior long-term stability. Optimized forward scatter obscuration bar increases sensitivity. Enhanced small particle detection and resolution as a result of optimized obscuration bar design.
The NovoCyte flow cytometer uses a highly accurate, volumetric syringe pump which enables direct absolute counting of samples, eliminating the need to use expensive reference beads.
Real-time monitoring of fluidics prevents flow path obstruction. Accurate pressure sensors monitor fluidic status in real-time, thus the possibility of flow path obstruction is greatly reduced, allowing for reliable and accurate data acquisition. Automated SIP (sample injection probe) washing following sample acquisition minimizes sample carryover and increases capability to detect rare events. High speed data acquisition of 35,000 events per second.
Routine maintenance features are as simple as clicking a button and following the on screen instructions
Highly efficient light collection ensures reliable detection of sub-micron particles and dim signals.
Using innovative optical design for light collection and high quality PMTs, fluorescence signals are efficiently detected with exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratio, ensuring a high detection sensitivity for weak positive samples and small particles.
Advanced optical and fluidic system design, premier quality components, and innovative signal processing algorithms collectively ensure accurate extraction of detection parameters with consistently low variation.
The NovoSampler is a modular autosampler, that can be interchanged with the single tube loader in just a couple minutes, is compatible with 12 x 75mm tube, 1.5 & 2mL tubes and 24/48/96 well plates, allowing for versatile loading modes, and increased throughput. Automatic calibration is just the push of a button and this procedure ensures accuracy between different plate types. Simply select your plate, identify your wells or tubes to run, and start running. The NovoSampler will automatically switch between samples, employ mixing or rinsing steps between samples if desired, and complete your run all while you are away.
