New Flow Cytometer MACSQuant(R) VYB Opens up Novel Avenues in Cell
ORLANDO, FL, April 4 /CNW/ - Miltenyi Biotec today announces the
worldwide release and availability of the MACSQuant(R) VYB, a compact,
benchtop flow cytometer featuring violet, yellow, and blue lasers, and
detection of 10 optical parameters. The MACSQuant VYB enables easy but
sophisticated multiparametric analysis of fluorescent
protein-expressing cells, stem cell characterization, and much more.
With this launch, the leading provider of tools and services for cell
separation and analysis technologies extends the scope and power of its
flow cytometry business.
The MACSQuant VYB expands the instrument range that began with the
popular MACSQuant(R) Analyzer, which marked the beginning of a new era
in benchtop flow cytometric analyses when it was first introduced.
Offering a wider range for detection of fluorescent markers, the newly
configured optical layout opens up a wealth of new possibilities for
scientific researchers in experimental design and methodology.
Additional features, such as absolute cell counting, rare cell
enrichment, autolabeling, and automated analysis of 96-well plates, set
the MACSQuant instruments in a class of their own.
"With unique and unparalleled features, the MACSQuant VYB is set to
really excite the world of flow cytometry," comments Shane Oram,
Business Manager Cell Analysis, Miltenyi Biotec, speaking at the AACR
meeting in Orlando, Florida. "Users can broaden their research
capabilities by detecting a greater number of fluorescent proteins
simultaneously. With its benchtop design and attractive price any
researcher can now have access to this powerful system, allowing them
to acquire meaningful data easily and more quickly."
