Flow cytometry highly depends on the collection of viable cells to achieve success. In order to to mitigate the risk of cell damage during sorting, instrument settings, including nozzle size and pressure, have to be carefully chosen by experienced operators. Sterility is another concern when working with traditional cell sorters that often operate in uncontrolled, open-air surroundings.
The MACSQuant® Tyto® addresses these concerns with its design as an easy-to-use and fully closed benchtop cell sorter with a disposable, single-use cartridge at its heart. The single-use use cartridge allows for completely aseptic sorting conditions with no chance of cross-contamination between samples. Learn about the features used by the MACSQuant® Tyto® allowing for the functionality of sorted cells for downstream, cell-based assays and providing the option to obtain additional target cells or seek unique fractions from the same sample.
