Accuri Cytometers, Inc. introduced the Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer System, designed to bring the power of flow cytometry cell analysis to the life science laboratory. The bench-top system delivers performance and features similar to those of the market-leading flow cytometers, and ease of use. The radical redesign that produced the Accuri C6 has also made possible a dramatic reduction in price—with the system selling for a fraction of the cost of most flow cytometers, according to the company.
The Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer System is a two-laser, six-detector analytical system that includes the C6 Flow Cytometer, CFlow Software and a PC. The detectors capture both forward and side-scattered light; four fluorescent detectors are equipped with user-replaceable optical filters. The operating software is designed to make data collection and analysis fast and hassle-free.
Accuri redesigned the hardware, user interface and analysis software of the C6 system with input from both researchers who use flow cytometry on a regular basis and those whose use have been limited by lack of access. The company teamed with Ann Arbor-based software firm Menlo Innovations,
