Thoughtful automation for a new level of workflow efficiency
The PS-10 is Sysmex’s response to the increasing demands and declining resources that today’s clinical flow cytometry laboratories are facing. This new sample preparation system offers an intelligent automation solution that delivers increased efficiency and flexibility for complex and routine flow cytometry applications.
PS-10 sample preparation system
The PS-10 is flexible enough to integrate with your existing SOPs – provides antibody cocktailing and automates all phases of the sample preparation process.
With its ability to use numerous combinations of antibodies, lysing and permeabilising reagents, the PS-10 is able to prepare samples for virtually any flow cytometer.
Choose from a broad portfolio of CyFlow™ antibody reagents to create the perfect panel for your diagnostic needs.
The graphic user interface makes it easy to learn and use. Information for reagents and procedures is stored for re-use – and easy traceability of data.
