Compact and economic flow cytometer

The CyFlow Cube 6 is a compact benchtop flow cytometer for the analysis of individual cells and microscopic particles. Different CyFlow Cube 6 configurations to select from offer optimal solutions for dedicated applications. The easy-to-use CyFlow software provides control of the instrument,  data acquisition, analysis and storage. CyFlow Cube 6 offers True Volumetric Absolute Counting (TVAC), which allows the display of particle concentrations for any subsets of cells without the need for reference beads, even if defined by a gate at a later time after the acquisition.

CyFlow: Intuitive software for CyFlow Cube 6

The newly designed, intuitive CyFlow acquisition and analysis software offers the measurement of millions of cells at your fingertips.

  • Quickly choose your plots for analysis from all of the combinations shown in Preview Mode.
  • Easily compare plots with the Overlay Wizard, for single or dual parameters.
  • Share and customise your results within your research organisation with the Report Generator.
  • Change your view with Zoom and V-Log Scale; you are even able to gate in Zoom Mode.
  • Compensate rapidly with the Compensation Wizard.
  • CyFlow optimally supports the True Volumetric Absolute Counting of the CyFlow Cube 6, displaying particle concentrations for any subsets of cells, even if defined by a gate at a later time after the acquisition.
