Haven't heard about optogenetic flow cytometry?



Opto biolabs's pxONE is an LED illumination device designed to combine optogenetic experiments with flow cytometry. It illuminates cell samples homogenously and an attached water bath keeps the temperature stable. Software control allows easy selection of light intensity and exposure time.

As a result, optogenetic experiments can be analyzed with over to 20.000 cells/second at single cell resolution. A plethora of established protocols for flow cytometry (calcium flux analysis, apoptosis, multiparameter analysis, cell population analysis etc.) can now easily be adapted to optogenetics.

The pxONE is compatible with BD™ LSR II, BD LSRFortessa™, Cytek™ Aurora, Miltenyi MACSQuant® Analyzer, Bio-Rad ZE5 Cell Analyzer, Beckman Coulter CYTOFlex. Ask us about compatability for other cytometers.
