mirrorball: high sensitivity cytometry for cell based assays
For cell based assays, TTP Labtech’s mirrorball® high sensitivity cytometer represents one of the most versatile instruments available today.
mirrorball’s flexibility allows direct transfer of cell based assays that normally require ABI 8200 (FMAT®), high content imaging or flow cytometry. It is the first system in its class to offer simultaneous scanning with multiple lasers (405, 488 and 640 nm) and offers a unique set of enabling features:
Homogenous no-wash-assays: - eliminating wash procedures yet retaining high sensitivity. mirrorball is capable of performing cell based assays compatible with both adherant an non-adherent cell lines.
High-speed multiplexing: - for identification of multiple fluorophores and analysis of heterogeneous populations in bead and cell based assays.
High content imaging: - with whole well scanning, mirrorball requires fewer cells to achieve statistically significant results.
Flow cytometry in a microplate: - with high sensitivity, mirroball’s offers an alternative to flow cytometry for the detection of low affinity antibodies and proteins found in low abundance.
- Improved assay performance for antibody discovery
- Comparable fluorescence detection to the ABI 8200 Cellular Detection system (FMAT®)
- Superior multiplexing through provision of multi-laser excitation and multiple detection channels
- Minimal reworking of existing cell based assay protocols
