A new Generation of Software for the Guava EasyCyte™ Plus Microcapillary Flow Cytometry System
Product News May 16, 2007
Guava Technologies Inc. has introduced a new generation of software for its Guava EasyCyte™ Plus microcapillary flow cytometry system.
Guava ExpressPro™ software has been designed to simplify the traditional complexity of multi-colour detection. Designed for both data acquisition and analysis, the software interface allows visualizing up to 8 plots simultaneously, while accessing operation or data analysis functions, all from the same screen.
With just a right click of the mouse, features including the plot type, marker selection, statistics, gates, and other functions, are selected and customised to the experimental design. Colour coded dots simply follow gating strategies across multiple plots and histograms. Special batch file printing of 96-well data and downloading of screen shots to a clipboard provide incorporation into presentation or report writing formats.
The compact system combines 96-well high throughput screening with the capabilities of a fourth colour option. The built-in 96-well sample tray feature also accommodates an additional 10 sample tubes, providing added flexibility for varying throughput needs.
Simultaneous four-colour fluorescence detection expands the results obtainable from any one well, simplifying simultaneous monitoring of complex biological studies such as white blood cell phenotyping, cell signaling, cytokine production, activation marker analysis, and multiplex compound screening.
The Guava EasyCyte™ Plus can provide both absolute cell counts and population percentages, to allow monitor for changes in overall cell number. The Guava EasyCyte™ Plus system runs all of Guava's turnkey assays, including antigen detection, cell counts / viability, cell cycle, cell proliferation, cytotoxicity and apoptosis.
