As a leading innovator in Flow Cytometry, ACEA Biosciences now provides the most advanced benchtop flow cytometer on the market. With 4 lasers, 25 colors, and 25 independent, highly sensitive detectors, the new NovoCyte Quanteon™ easily accommodates the large, multi-color panels found in today’s highly progressive flow cytometry laboratories. Yet, with a number of key features such as auto compensation, as well as fixed and flexible signal collection options, the system is remarkably easy to set up for users of all levels and experience.
The NovoSampler Q™, which can be integrated into different laboratory automation platforms, efficiently processes both FACS tubes (using a 40-tube rack) and 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well plates. The intuitive and industry leading NovoExpress® software has been further advanced, providing an exceptional user experience in data acquisition, analysis and reporting.
The NovoCyte Quanteon is a breakthrough in flow cytometry design in that it provides 25 fluorescent channel capability, with light collected against 25 different detectors. Since the detectors have a 7 log dynamic range, coupled with advanced auto compensation features, the need to tune each detector has been completely alleviated. You now have the flexibility to choose from 25 fluorescent channels utilizing four lasers, without having to sacrifice the performance in one channel, for another channel.
The fluorescent channels available on the NovoCyte Quanteon from ACEA include:
The proprietary optical detection system found inside the NovoCyte Quanteon employs a series of 25 Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM), which have superb detection sensitivity, at the photon level. The novel design provides highly discrete management of each fluorescent channel, superior optical detection, and cross-talk between channels is completely minimized. The NovoCyte Quanteon also has an automatic optical filter recognition feature, which allows users to efficiently change filter configurations, as needed by the user. The system has a fail-safe hardware feature, which conveniently alerts the user to any improperly arranged filter configurations, thereby mitigating against potential hardware errors during system set-up, and makes it ideal for a multi-user environment.
What is a SiPM?
Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) are solid-state, silicon-substrate-based, photon-level-sensitive semiconductor devices, with a 7 log dynamic range. Consisting of a compact array of avalanche photodiodes operating in unison, the SiPM is a compact detector with photon counting capability. Innovative optics design in NovoCyte Quanteon incorporates 25 independent SiPM for collecting and processing signals for each of its fluorescence channels.
The NovoCyte Quanteon provides enhanced automation capabilities with faster and higher throughput:
User experience has always been one of the highlights of running the NovoCyte system. The NovoExpress soft ware is now even more powerful. The addition of key capabilities that are often purchased as third party software options, can now be found in the NovoExpress Software. These additional features enhance instrument control, status monitoring, and data analysis:
