Automatic Measurement of Ploidy Level and Genome Size

High-performance flow cytometry

The CyFlow Ploidy Analyser is a compact flow cytometer for ploidy analysis, high resolution DNA and genome size analysis for plants, animals and micro- organisms.

This modular system is equipped with a UV LED (365nm) and/or a green laser ( 532nm) which, when used in combination with Partec CyStain reagents, provides high resolution DNA analysis with DAPI or propidium iodide.

The CyFlow Ploidy instrument measures the DNA content of many thousands of individual nuclei within seconds or minutes. The result is directly displayed as a DNA histogram on the internal 15.4” colour display. The automated, real-time ploidy analysis is extremely time- and cost- efficient.
