Forward Scatter Detection

Proprietary Axial Light Loss (ALL) sensor system using silicon photodiodes with built in 488/8 μm band pass filter.

Fluorescence and Side Scatter Detection

Fluorescence and side scatter light delivered by fiber optics to Avalanche Photo Diode detector arrays. Proprietary design ensures high performance, high efficiency, low-noise signal detection. Emission profiles are collected using reflective optics and single transmission band pass filters.

Violet Side Scatter Configuration

Option to configure Avalanche Photo Diode detector array to collect side scatter signal from Violet (405 nm) laser. The configured channel (VSSC) can be utilized to better resolve nanoparticles below 200 nm size threshold.

Quality Control

For detection channel off of the 405, 488, and 638 nm laser, CytExpert QC automation pass/fail criteria is rCV ≤5.0%. For detection channels off of the 808 nm laser, the criteria is ≤ 7.0%.

DATA MANAGEMENT

Software

The CytExpert software is a full-feature software package that controls the instrument's operation, collection of experiment data, and analysis of the results.

Three different installation modes are available, depending on the level of security required. The Default installation requires no user login. For multiuser instruments, the User Management installation requires user login and contains features for role management. Electronic Records Management installation provides tools that facilitate compliance with 21 CFR Part 11, Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures.

An API (Application Programming Interface) is available and allows external software to perform operations such as running methods and for basic control of the plate loader.

Standardization

Daily QC beads or any other reference material that is relevant for your application may be used as the standardization sample to set target values and calibrate the gain settings automatically. The Standardization Target Library stores a variety of application target files which are linked to the reference material lot numbers.
