The easyCyte 8HT is a benchtop system that contains dual blue 488 nm and red 640 nm excitation lasers. These lasers offer up to eight detection parameters at one time. The parameters include six fluorescent colors and both forward and side light scatter. This system has a 96-well autosampler built-in that provides researchers plate and tube sampling that is reliable. To acquire and analyze data, the easyCyte 8HT flow cytometer uses InCyte software to acquire and analyze data. In addition to the built-in 96-well plate that stores 10 tubes, this system also has key automation features. The instrument provides automated sampling from the 96 microplates that are part of the system. This feature allows walk-away processing of cell samples. The easyCyte 8HT also includes an automated sampling feature from one or up to 10 tubes of samples. Regular maintenance is also more efficient with the automated cleaning operations.
