Fully-Automated Cellular Analysis by Flow Cytometry
Flow cytometry is a widely-used and powerful tool for single-cell analysis – an essential ability for those
studying heterogeneous cell populations. However, the need for cells to be in single-cell suspensions
can result in challenging sample preparation. This can include trypsinization of adherent cells and/or
centrifugation steps to remove staining reagents.Automating these steps can decrease the time at the
bench while improving reproducibility by ensuring consistent treatment (i.e. trypsin incubations) across
samples. In addition, moving to a plate-based format increases the potential sample throughput.
