Beckman Coulter offers a wide range of innovative cell sorters and analyzers to expand your clinical and research flow cytometry capabilities. 

Navios

Proven reliability and precision for confident treatment decisions

Get the fast answers you need for timely, confident treatment decisions with the proven reliability and precision of Beckman Coulter’s Navios Tetra system for simultaneous identification and enumeration of T, B and NK lymphocytes in whole blood.

Navios is equipped with electronics that provide accurate and efficient digital signal processing at high event rates over a wide dynamic range of fluorescence intensities. These benefits are packaged in a compact analyzer that delivers stable performance over long periods of time and across a wide range of operating temperatures.

Now available for the Navios flow cytometer, Navios Tetra delivers an easy-to-use solution for multicolor flow cytometric analysis of lymphocyte subsets as well as CD4+ and CD8+ T cell subsets ratios.

Features

Performance

Optics in action

The Navios offers up-to four solid state, independently-focused diode lasers with an innovative steering design mechanism for optimal excitation at the flow cell and reliable high-quality results. Emitted energy is delivered by fiber optic technology to the patented boulevard using 18-degree reflective optics resulting in greater light collection efficiency for better resolve data, especially dim markers. The boulevard is optimized to offer application flexibility with accessible plug-and-play filters and he collection of tandem dyes.

Electronics explained

The Navios maintains a high yield of processed signals, greater than 90 per cent–even at 25,000 events per second.

  • 20 bit resolution
  • 1,048,576 channel display
  • More channels of resolution to separate even the dimmest of populations
  • Excellent accuracy and resolution for dim stains and quantitation

Patented electronics design ensures fast, accurate measurement of signals over a wide range of events.

  • Higher bits of information
  • Baseline restoration
  • Fast signal processing
  • Minimize data loss

High-yield electronics with fast pulse recovery at high speeds, the Navios electronic system minimizes linearity errors and adjusts for temperature variability.

  • Sensitivity of dim particles
  • Minimize dead time

The Navios electronic system has a self-correcting temperature regulation system.

  • Adjusts for temperature variability
  • Minimizes linearity errors based on temperature variations
