Guava® easyCyte Flow Cytometers

Guava easyCyte Flow CytometersGuava benchtop microcapillary flow cytometers now provide up to 14 parameters of detection, with more powerful violet, blue, green, and red lasers for exceptional sensitivity to enable detection of small particles and rare signals.

Advantages of Guava Flow Cytometers

Compared to traditional sheath fluid-based instruments, Guava systems consume less sample, produce less liquid waste (<50mL in 8 hours of continuous use), and are easier to use.

Other advantages shared by all Guava instruments:

  • Automated sampling option handles 96-well plates or tubes
  • Cost-effective single sample-loading option
  • Microcapillary enables direct, absolute cell counts – no need for reference beads
  • Laser and detector configurations are compatible with many fluorochromes
  • Intuitive InCyte™ software makes it easy to import settings, set gates, construct dose response curves, and use heat maps to compare plate-based experiments
