The Applied Biosystems Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer is a precise, state of the art instrument that provides the user a high speed and high precision interface in order to acquire faster data collection in cell analysis.
The Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer allows the user to utilize high collection rates in without compromising precision and quality. Further, this technology also allows the use to be able to detect rare-events with much shorter acquisition times that require no cell lysis and no cell washing methods, effectively eliminating unnecessary cell loss from the procedures. This system is designed to allow the user the ability to control sample concentrations, flow rates, and the number of photons detected in order to maximize rare-event detection without wasting any valuable sample.
The Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer is designed to enable higher sensitivity in cell analysis which is possible due to this instruments ability to align cells precisely at high sample rates up to 1 mL/min. Unlike conventional cytometers, this instrument is not dependent on physical sheath constraints. The Attune cytometer utilizes ultrasonic waves over 2Mhz, rather than hydrodynamic forces, to position cells into a single, focused line that can effectively allow for maximum precision even at high velocities.
This system was design to collect up to 20 million events per run and has an adjustable collection rate of 25–1000 uL/min all without compromising the sensitivity for rare events. This ability the Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer to operate at higher sample rates allows the user to utilize no lyse and no wash protocols in order to minimize cell loss and simplify experiments. Analysis using red blood cells, stem cells, and cerebral spinal fluid is able to avoid these steps that ultimate lead to significant cell loss and damage and does not compromise the integrity of those sample populations of interest that are inherently low in concentration.
The Attune cytometer is a modular system that can be accommodated to your research needs. It is able to analyze up to 8 parameters (6 color detection + side scatter and forward scatter. This system allows utilizes powerful analytical software that can simplify cell analysis and that requires no licensing fees.
The Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer is a powerful, modular, and efficient instrument all in a small footprint ideal for any research laboratory.
