Pushing the limits by ‘equal opportunity’ design

Particle imaging, scanning and accurate counting are key deliverables of the CytoSense and CytoSub instruments. Their quality is determined by the basic instrument particle size range design, providing ‘equal opportunity’ for a wide range of particles, small or large, round or long, to 1) get inside,  2) get detected and 3) get properly recorded and imaged.  This led to a large flowcell with single particle file optical scanning, highly sensitive counting and a single fixed camera with aplanatic optics for high resolution and a large viewing area. Some specifications and examples are shown.
