Guava® easyCyte Instrument Specifications

Request Information

For fully automated sample loading from single tubes or a 96-well plate, we offer the easyCyte™HT (High Throughput) systems, with four available high-power lasers. The affordable easyCyte™ series features individual sample loading from tubes, and the same powerful optics as the HT systems.

The recent addition of a green 532 nanometer laser enhances the easyCyte™ instrument line, expanding multiparameter detection capabilities and enabling simultaneous detection of multiple fluorescent proteins, as well as providing a broader spectral choice using fluorescent reagents.
