‘Spectral’ cell analyzer <prototype>
Tokyo, Japan, June 19, 2012 - Sony Corporation ( “Sony”) today announced the development of ‘Spectral’ cell analyzer, its second ‘flow cytometer’ cell analysis instrument(*) for the optical analysis of cells. Sony will also exhibit its prototype at ISAC (the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry) in Leipzig, Germany, from June 23 - 27.
This high-end cell analyzer adopts a newly-developed ‘spectral’ cytometry method to detect full spectrum fluorescent emissions, making highly complex analysis a simple task. By introducing this method, Sony aims to propose a novel method of cell analysis to researchers in advanced research fields such as immunology, oncology, and regenerative medicine.
