Broad compatibility—Compatible with many different plate formats, including 96-well, 384-well, and deep-well plates.
Intelligent probe—Intelligent probe design minimizes clogging and carryover (1.0%) and prevents damage to the instrument.
Auto cleaning—Performs automated cleaning when the instrument is shutting down.
Consistent data—Designed to provide minimal variation regardless of sampling method (tube vs. plate) and collection rate.
Mixing by aspiration—Mixing sample by aspiration instead of shaking ensures homogeneity of the sample and maintains cell viability.
High-throughput mode acquisition time: <42 min for 96-well plate, <180 min for 384-well plate (using one rinse and one mix, and full analysis of a 40 μL sample)
Carryover: <0.5% in plate loader format (standard mode, 2 wash cycles); multiple-rinse capability for ultralow carryover
Sample mixing: Mixing optimized to preserve cell viability; mixing cycles optimized to sample analysis volume
Mixing method: Each well mixed via full aspiration (no shaking)
Wash cycle: User-defined number of wash cycles, dependent on plate-processing protocol and time to acquire plates
Minimum dead volume (single draw): 30 μL for 12.5–200 μL/min, 50 μL for 50–1,000 μL/min
Sample window: Protectively coated window allows visibility to well progress while preventing exposure to ambient light during acquisition
Auto-calibration: Regular, 30-day interval, system-initiated function
Plate and tube compatibility: One-click transition from tubes to plates and vice versa; no disassembly, no additional QC, no reboot required for conversion between plates and tubes
Compatible plate types: 96 deep-well (flat, round, and V-bottom), 96-well standard depth (flat, round, and V-bottom), 384-well standard depth (flat, round, and V-bottom), 384 deep-well (flat, round, and V-bottom)
Cleaning cycles: Automated daily and monthly cleaning protocols
Fluidics requirements: 800 mL total of onboard fluid tanks, capable of running four 96-well plates
Extended fluidics option: Optional external fluid tank with 10 L fluid capacity
