Automated sample preparation for clinical flow cytometry
- Flexibly and intelligently automates preparation of samples for flow cytometric analysis
- Freely programmable to adapt to your individual needs, for both routine and complex applications
- Improves confidence in the results, through the reduction of human handling errors
- Provides traceability of samples, reagents and processing steps
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.
Thoughtful automation for a new level of workflow efficiency.
Please contact your local Sysmex representative regarding the availability of this product in your country.
Automate your sample preparation processes
The PS-10 automates antibody cocktailing and sample preparation using an onboard selection of antibody and lyse or fixation reagents. By automating many manual steps, it frees up the time of laboratory staff for other tasks.
Customise procedures to match your needs while ensuring traceability
Custom-built assays can be easily created by combining simple processing steps, including cell wash, to adapt to individual laboratory needs.
Compatible with antibody reagents from a variety of manufacturers, it can be programmed to create antibody cocktails or use single antibodies.
The information for reagents and procedures is stored for re-use – and easy traceability of data.
Maximise your workflow efficiency
By automating both the manual steps and documentation associated with sample preparation, the PS-10 reduces hands-on time, allowing laboratory staff to use that time to focus on other tasks.
Multiple design elements are incorporated to maximise workflow efficiency: from dual pipetting probes to multi-aliquoting for multi-tube panels.
For wash procedures, the daughter tube rotors can be easily transferred from the PS-10 to the Hettich Rotolavit II-S automated cell wash centrifuge, virtually eliminating daughter tube handling and human errors during these steps.
Flexibly standardise your preparation processes
The automated processing by nature eliminates operator-dependent variability, thus leading to an increased level of standardisation compared to manual preparation. Reduction of possible human errors at many steps adds a further level of confidence in the results.
