Peristaltic Pump in the CytoFLEX

The CytoFLEX flow cytometer uses a specialized peristaltic pump to move the sheath fluid and the sample through the flow cell. In this part of our Magic Inside video series, you will be transported inside of the fluidics system and see close up the operation of this innovative approach that minimizes pressure pulsations. The use of a peristaltic pump with its positive displacement of liquid enables small sample volumes and features like volumetric cell counting.
