Technology

XTra Autonomy

CyTOF XT™ automation expands what your lab can accomplish by simplifying daily workflows and freeing operator time for other tasks
 

XTra Efficiency

Simplified front-end assembly, bottle tray for solutions and automated tuning minimize maintenance and calibration.
 

XTra Clarity

The precision of measuring marker expression using mass cytometry is unmatched by fluorescence cytometry methods. Cleaner signals mean data is more accurate.

Preview the new CyTOF XT. With all these XTra benefits, imagine what insights await you next. 

Workflow

1

Design Panel

Easily build panels with 20 to 50 or more metal-tagged antibodies and reagents using Maxpar® Panel Designer. Add barcoding to multiplex your samples for even better data quality. Or use pre-built panels to get started!

2

Load

Up to 13 individual samples can be loaded in the chilled sample carousel for a single batch run.

3

Resuspend

The sample pellet is automatically resuspended and calibration beads added immediately prior to acquisition of each sample.

4

Acquire

Up to 13 different panels and sample types can be acquired unattended with preconfigured acquisition templates on the CyTOF XT.

5

Analyze

FCS 3.1 files can be analyzed with any capable software including FCS Express™ and Cytobank. Maxpar Pathsetter™ provides automated immune profiling data analysis.
