Vi-CELL MetaFLEX Features

Vi Cell MetaFLEXIdeal for micro- to large-scale cell culture applications in R&D, QC and manufacturing, the Vi-CELL MetaFLEX is designed to deliver rapid and accurate bioanalyte analysis.

  • Delivers measurements for all parameters in ≥ 35 seconds* at sample volumes ≥ 65 μL.
  • 60-second cycle time enables throughput of 44 samples/hour.*
  • Average uptime performance is 23.5 hours/day.**
  • Sensor cassettes perform automatic QC and are designed for 30 days of use (or ≤ 300 tests), and can be stored for up to 4 months at 35-46° F (2-8° C).
  • Solution packs are designed for 30 days of use (or until empty), and can be stored for up to 4 months at 35-77° F (2-25° C).

* May vary during startup
** May vary during startup; the longest activity is 2.5 min for system calibration
