what’s new Flow cytometers Merck Millipore microcapillary flow cytometry systems are said to be simpler to operate than traditional sheath fluid-based instruments and easier to maintain. They utilise small-sample volumes, generate minimal waste and have low operating costs. As a result, guava easyCyte flow cytometers are amenable to on-demand use in the laboratory environment and help scientists achieve insightful cellular analysis. The flow cytometry systems are easy to use and deliver complete and comprehensive cell analysis right on the benchtop. The culmination of over a decade of flow cytometry expertise, the instruments are
