Dr. Andy Filby, Director of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility at Newcastle Univitysity (UK), describes his experience using the NovoCyte Flow Cytometer from ACEA Biosciences. He lists the large number of lasers and detectors, all contained within a small footprint, as important attributes of the instrument. Another salient feature described by Dr. Filby is NovoCyte's highly intuitive software/workflow that is accessible to users with very different backgrounds and levels of experience. He also discusses time saving features of the NovoCyte, including: an autosampler, simple & rapid quality control protocols, and fixed PMT voltages (which eliminate the need to adjust settings for each experiment).
