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.
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
