High-end flow cytometer with a small footprint:

For research and clinical laboratories

Up to six lasers and 21 fluorescent detectors give these flow cytometers advanced sensitivity and resolution

Beckman Coulter’s benchtop CytoFLEX flow cytometer platform now gives you all the benefits of a top-tier flow cytometer on a small footprint: exceptional sensitivity and resolution. Measuring blood or cultured cells, bacteria, algae, yeasts, microparticles and even nanoparticles poses no challenge for this compact but powerful cytometer in any of its 51 configurations. No matter whether you are conducting research or examining routine samples in clinical diagnostics – we have the right flow cytometer for every application.

These flow cytometers can easily measure up to 21 fluorescences simultaneously, doing so with outstanding sensitivity and reproducibility in six different excitation wavelengths (355 nm, 375 nm, 405 nm, 488 nm, 638 nm, 808 nm). And thanks to unique APD technology, overlapping fluorescence can be compensated more easily than with any other flow cytometer. At speeds of up to 30,000 events per second and with 23 parameters selected, even large cell amounts can be measured rapidly. The CytExpert software lets the user learn to operate this highly flexible flow cytometer safely and successfully in a very short time.

Flow cytometers for research and diagnostics at a glance

Flow cytometer for research


  • Individually configurable with up to 6 lasers / 21 colours
  • Easy to learn, easy to operate, easy to maintain
  • Optional plate loader for 96-well plates
  • Violet side scatter resolution for particle detection < 80 nm
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compatible software for flow cytometry
NEW: Europe’s first 13-colour cytometer for clinical laboratories


  • The first CE-IVD certified Flow Cytometer with 13 colours
  • Equipped with up to 3 lasers

Easy compensation even with weak fluorescence – thanks to unique APD technology:

  • Avalanche photodiodes (APD) reduce background noise to a minimum
  • Greatly simplified compensation of overlapping fluorescence – independent of gain
  • Simple differentiation between weakly and strongly fluorescent populations
  • Easier selection of gates and easier calculation of statistics
Beckman Coulter‘s flow cytometers can be configured to meet the needs of your lab, whether you are performing routine low-complexity analyses, high-complexity analyses or analyses that push the boundaries for flow cytometry.
