Flow Cytometry / Pollen Viability
Amphasys’ new-generation flow cytometer is a plug & play device 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 it is exclusively founded on electrical measurements. Latest generation digital signal processing electronics are specifically tailored to Amphasys’ semi-disposable chips, such that best-of-class impedance analysis on single cells is achieved.
Our equipment provides a powerful tool to analyse pollen viability thereby helping to increase the yield of high quality seed and to reduce the cost of production (for example by increasing the female-to-male ratio and the yield per plant).
In addition to pollen, the label-free technology is suitable for analysis of virtually any kind of single cells 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.
