TTP LabTech’s Acumen eX3 fluorescence microplate cytometer offers multi-laser excitation (405nm, 488nm and 633nm) and the ability to acquire up to 12 channels of fluorescence data per scan. This enables the use of a broad range of fluorescent dyes, probes, and proteins for enhanced multiplexing within assays. Since nuclear staining is not required to locate the cells, all probes may be used for reporting biological responses. This technology is heavily used in oncology research, particularly as cell cycle analysis can be assessed in cells with 405-, 488- and 633-excitable DNA stains.
