Flow Cytometry / Single Cell Analysis
Amphasys’ new-generation flow cytometer is a plug & play automated cell counter, designed to blend simplicity with flexibility. The absence of optical components minimizes set-up times and maintenance to a minimum. Time-consuming sample preparation procedures and expensive fluorescent dyes do not belong to Amphasys’ world, because the automated cell counter is exclusively based on electrical measurements. Latest generation digital signal processing electronics are specifically tailored to Amphasys’ semi-disposable chips, so that best-of-class impedance analysis on single cells is achieved.
Our automated cell counter, provides a powerful tool to analyse pollen viability thereby helping to increase the yield of high quality seeds and reduce the cost of production (for example by increasing the female-to-male ratio and the yield per plant).
In addition to testing for pollen viability, the label-free technology is suitable for analysis of virtually any kind of single cells, such as yeast viability, revealing characteristics such as cell size and morphology, viability (apoptosis), or cell differentiation. The patented, "lab-on-chip" solution eliminates time-consuming, complex sample preparation steps, like cell labelling and the need of expensive laboratory infrastructure.
