Miltenyi Biotec is launching a new era in the field of fully automated high-throughput flow cytometry analysis: Now up to 384-well plates can be handled in less than 60 minutes giving users fast, reliable, and reproducible results. This is made possible by the MACSQuant® X – a benchtop instrument that gives you all the flexibility and is easy to use.
The benchtop flow cytometer MACSQuant X gives users access to affordable and easy to use, high-throughput flow cytometry. Based on the core of Miltenyi Biotec’s successful line of MACSQuant Instruments, the new MACSQuant X is capable of processing various types of tubes and plates, including 384- and 96-well plates.
Benefits of the MACSQuant X at a glance:
Process 384-well plates in less than 60 minutes and 96-well plates in 15 minutes
Analyze uptake volumes as small as 5 µL per sample with consistent results
Robust 10-parameter flow cytometer designed for high-throughput screening
Built with speed in mind
With three lasers (405, 488, 638 nm), 10-parameter experiments can be performed in 15 minutes for a 96-well plate and in less than 60 minutes for a 384-well plate. Data from each sample are saved in an individual file, allowing you to either analyze every sample on the fly or access ready-to-analyze data immediately after the plate processing has finished. The instrument enables consistent results with as little as 5 µL uptake volume per sample; it still delivers consistently low coefficient of variation (CV) values, regardless of the chosen flow rate and input volume.
Two different sample mixing options
The integrated vibration needle can mix every single well of a plate individually. The MACSQuant X Orbital Shaker enables 2-dimensional mixing of all samples within the plate at once. This shaker allows for an easy experimental setup and enables users to switch directly between a single tube, tube rack, or different plate types.
Thanks to the optimized, compact design, the device fits on a common laboratory work surface and can be integrated either as a stand-alone device or as a module in a fully automated cell processing system. As a result, the MACSQuant X offers flexibility and versatility in applications in screening facilities as well as in routine laboratories.
