Accurate & Precise Analyses
Flow cytometry, commonly referred to as FACS analysis, is an effective method when used to identify and measure cellular biomarkers in complex subpopulations. Scorpius utilizes the Beckman Coulter CytoFLEX S flow cytometry platforms as part of our premier immunoassay facilities. Flow cytometry allows for accurate and precise analyses of cell surface and intracellular molecules to better characterize and define cell types in a mixed or purified sample.
Measuring Cells Individually
A key advantage of flow cytometry is its ability to analyze and measure cells individually. This is particularly beneficial when studying heterogeneous populations of cells, as it can be used to rapidly analyze subpopulations in just a few minutes, producing very detailed data on count, properties, and classification on a cell-by-cell basis. The Beckman Coulter CytoFLEX S is especially valuable for high-throughput, high-accuracy cell counting, as well as for applications involving biomarker detection. Scorpius' scientists are skilled in a broad variety of flow cytometry applications in support of non-GLP, GLP and cGMP product release testing.
