Your assays. Standardized and prepared automatically
Many laboratories create their own reagent cocktails for routine applications in order to accommodate the marker combinations they need. With the optional AQUIOS Designer Software, it is now possible to set up your own user-defined assays on the AQUIOS CL flow cytometer.
Create user-defined protocols and panels
The intuitive interface of AQUIOS Designer Software allows you to create the protocols, acquisition templates, panels, compensation settings, and statistic/QC parameters that you need for your specific assay.
Adapt sample preparation to your needs
AQUIOS CL combines sample preparation and analysis in one compact platform. With AQUIOS Designer Software, each step in the sample preparation process (volumes, incubation times, mix cycles) can be adapted to your specific requirements. To customize your assay even more, AQUIOS Designer Software supports the use of different lysing options and can derive absolute cell counts using either reference beads or the AQUIOS volumetric absolute counting methodology.
In order to take advantage of the automation features of the AQUIOS CL system, Beckman Coulter provides the reagents for your user-defined assays either through our Contract Manufacturing (GMP) or Custom Design* Services of user defined reagents. Either option provides barcoded and cap-pierceable vials that can be run on the AQUIOS CL instrument.
Under Beckman Coulter‘s Contract Manufacturing Services, we manufacture the components of your user defined test reagents under GMP conditions according to your specifications.
Our Custom Design Services* go even one step further, in that our antibody experts assist you in panel design and reagent formulation.
