Beckman Coulter supports the Swiss Flow Cytometry School by placing at our disposal a Navios FC


Beckman Coulter Switzerland continues to actively support the Swiss Flow Cytometry School by providing a Navios machine for our teaching courses.

This state of the art IVD flow cytometer is equipped with 3 lasers (Blue, Red and Violet) and can measure up to 10 different channels simultaneously! Controlled by the Navios software (an updated version of CXP software) this flow cytometer, used by numerous diagnostics laboratories worldwide, can measure up to 30,000 cells per second.
Together with Kaluza Analysis software 1.2 it makes 10-color cytometry easily accessible to everyone and constitutes an ideal machine for our trainings.
