The new flow cytometer offers full automation and enhanced software to alleviate bottlenecking.

The Sartorius Group’s newest product launch, the Intellicyt iQue3, is designed to provide fully automated processing and analysis for flow cytometry workflows, speeding between taking samples to developing actionable solutions. The product is a successor to the iQue Screener PLUS and represents a new generation of instrument that offers more user-friendly operation and enhanced process security to ensure consistent and reliable results with minimal user intervention.

One of the iQue3’s new features is an enhanced rinse station that actively monitors buffer usage. The module includes built-in liquid level detection and offers a smarter way to ensure that buffer levels are always sufficient to complete a run. There has also been a number of updates to the system’s intuitive ForeCyt software, which uses a unique templated analysis approach to offer intelligent, fully automated data processing. This software solution has been specifically developed to alleviate common processing bottlenecks by eliminating the need for manual data analysis and providing real-time visualization of data for virtually any cell- or bead-based assay, according to the company.

The product made its debut at the 34th Congress of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry, CYTO 2019 Congress, held on June 22–26, 2019 in Vancouver, Canada.
