Navios Flow Cytometer

The Navios clinical cytometer is equipped with electronics that provide accurate and efficient digital signal processing at high event rates over a wide dynamic range of fluorescence intensities. It delivers stable performance over long periods of time and across a wide range of operating temperatures. With automated protocols, automated startup and QC monitoring, the Navios was designed with the clinical lab in mind.

Navios tetra system is a clinical assay for simultaneous identification and enumeration of T, B and NK lymphocytes in whole blood.

  • Efficient workflow through automated data management from sample identification through to data reporting
  • Innovative scatter detection technology provides flexibility for microparticle and dim fluorescent population analysis
