FIT screening

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The good news is that CRC incidence and mortality can be reduced significantly if detected early enough.

Faecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are non-invasive and can detect blood in stool invisible to the naked eye. Due to its simplicity, FIT is currently considered the best non-invasive test for CRC screening.

Invest a little time in your own health by taking the FIT to prevent or detect colon cancer early on.

CyFlow Cube 6

  • Configurations with up 6 optical parameters (up to 4 colours)
  • 488 nm blue laser and 638 nm red laser
  • Particle size: 0.1 – 100 µm
  • Fluorescence sensitivity: ≤ 100 MESF (FITC) | ≤ 50 MESF (PE)
  • Optional CyFlow Robby 6 Autoloading Station

Compact and economic flow cytometer

The CyFlow Cube 6 is a compact benchtop flow cytometer for the analysis of individual cells and microscopic particles. Different CyFlow Cube 6 configurations to select from offer optimal solutions for dedicated applications. The easy-to-use CyFlow software provides control of the instrument,  data acquisition, analysis and storage. CyFlow Cube 6 offers True Volumetric Absolute Counting (TVAC), which allows the display of particle concentrations for any subsets of cells without the need for reference beads, even if defined by a gate at a later time after the acquisition.



CyFlow: Intuitive software for CyFlow Cube 6

The newly designed, intuitive CyFlow acquisition and analysis software offers the measurement of millions of cells at your fingertips.

  • Quickly choose your plots for analysis from all of the combinations shown in Preview Mode.
  • Easily compare plots with the Overlay Wizard, for single or dual parameters.
  • Share and customise your results within your research organisation with the Report Generator.
  • Change your view with Zoom and V-Log Scale; you are even able to gate in Zoom Mode.
  • Compensate rapidly with the Compensation Wizard.
  • CyFlow optimally supports the True Volumetric Absolute Counting of the CyFlow® Cube 6, displaying particle concentrations for any subsets of cells, even if defined by a gate at a later time after the acquisition.
