WHY IT’S TIME TO UPGRADE YOUR  CELL WASH FROM THE CENTRIFUGE

Despite their limitations and intensive hands-on requirements, centrifuges have been the only solution to washing suspension cells prior to analysis.

Now with Laminar Wash Systems, you can improve your workflow, increase cell retention and generate more robust, reproducible data.

Advantages of Centrifuge-Free Washing

CHALLENGES OF TRADITIONAL WASHING

Centrifuges expose suspension cells to large gravitational forces for extended periods of time. Laminar Wash technology is the first practical alternative to pelleting cells in tubes or 96-well plates using a centrifuge.

Centrifugation packs cells tightly together, often causing phenotypic changes that can bias data analysis.

Centrifugation also:

Pellets debris along with cells

Requires several manual steps prone to variation

Requires flicking or aspirating supernatants, which impacts reproducibility

Reduces cell retention and viability

THE CURIOX DIFFERENCE

Comparison of an immuno-staining workflow for the preparation of a single cell suspension for flow cytometry analysis. Laminar Wash technology is equally effective in washing but without the use of a centrifuge.

Laminar Wash technology offers an affordable and simple solution to automating suspension cell sample prep, leading to improved downstream assays. Benefits include:

Cleaner samples, less debris

Reduced hands-on time

Enhanced cell retention and viability

No flicking!
