LIFECODES Fluoroanalyzer

 

Accuracy and Precision

  • Sample uptake volume ±5%
  • Classification of microspheres >80%
  • Misclassification of microspheres ≤ 2%.
  • Temperature control 0°C to +2°C of target
  • Internal sample carryover <0.9%
  • Soluble background fluorescence emissions at 575 nm automatically subtracted from fluorescence intensity values

Sensitivity

  • Detect 1000 fluorochromes phycoerythrin (PE) per xMAP microsphere
  • Reporter channel dynamic range: 3.5

Optics

  • Reporter laser: 532 nm, nominal output 10- 15 mW, maximum 500 mW, frequencydoubled diode; mode of operation, continuous wave (CW)
  • Classification laser: 635 nm, 9.1 ± 6%, maximum output 25 mW, diode; mode of operation, continuous wave (CW)
  • Reporter detector: Photomultiplier tube, detection bandwidth of 565 – 585 nm
  • Classification detector and doublet discriminator: Avalanche photo diodes with temperature compensation

Fluidics

  • Sheath flow rate: 90 μL ± 5 μL/second
  • Cuvette: 200 micron square flow channel
  • Sample injection rate: 1 μL/second
  • Sample update volume: 20 – 200 μL

Setup

  • Installation < 4 hours
  • System calibration < 10 minutes
  • System warm up 30 minutes. Systems that remain inactive for at least four hours will require a warm-up to restart the lasers. After acquiring sample, running system calibrators, running system controls and warming up the instrument, the system resets the four-hour internal clock.

  • Sheath container and waste container hold enough volume to run up to two 96-well plates between refills.
  • Distinguish a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 100 unique xMAP microsphere sets in a single sample
  • Detect and distinguish surface reporter fluorescence emissions at 575 nm on the surface of 1-100 unique xMAP
  • microsphere sets in a single sample
