Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer
The Attune Acoustic Focusing Flow Cytometer has both high sensitivity and high throughput. The autosampler can sample from 96 well or 384 well microplates. You can control your sample concentration, the flow rate, and the number of photons you detect.
The acoustic focusing technology uses ultrasonic waves (over 2 MHz, similar to those used in medical imaging), rather than hydrodynamic forces, to position cells into a single, tightly focused line along the central axis of a capillary at the point of laser interrogation regardless of the sample-to-sheath ratio.
