The TQ-Prep Workstation and IMMUNOPRE PReagent System together provide rapid, no-wash whole-blood sample preparation. Automation provides inter-sample and inter-laboratory consistency and reproducibility. A standard 32-tube carousel allows walk-away processing and perfectly complements both the XL-MCL and FC500 flow cytometers automatic sample loaders for the fastest sample throughput in the industry. Intended primarily for laboratories with a high test volume (at least 300 tests per month), the TQ-Prep uses the revolutionary patented lyse and fix technology introduced more than a decade ago with the Q-PREP Workstation and IMMUNOPREP Reagent System.
You have flexibility Choose between the standard ImmunoPrep Reagent System configuration or the optional low angle light scatter reagent configuration according to your flow cytometer needs. Choose between on or off-line incubation step to maximize walk-away capability. Choose between set-up on a bench top or inside a safety cabinet to suit your safety considerations. You have high reliability Each component has been tested in excess of 100,000 cycles. A new syringe pump system dispenses reagents in precise and accurate volumes. State-of-the-art DiskOnChip® FlashDisk provides reliable software operation. Vortex system mixing ensures reproducible lysis of homogenous cells. You have convenience Operation is simple with universal touch screen icons. You receive constant feedback as to where you are in the incubation and lysing process. You have virtually maintenance-free operation. Your reagent use is monitored by robust conductive reagent sensing and cycle counters. High Speed with Accuracy and Reproducibility Provides the fastest no-wash flow cytometry-ready preparation available today. Takes a sample from whole blood to lysis in seconds. Maintains cellular integrity without distortion. Minimizes debris or platelet adhesion to leukocytes through clean sample preparations. Reduces non-specific binding. Avoids centrifugation and selective cell loss. Preserves surface attributes. Offers 24 hour stability. Reduces cell handling. Excellent versatility The TQ-Prep Workstation and ImmunoPrep Reagent System are directly compatible with the Coulter EPICS XL-MCL flow cytometer and can also operate with any flow cytometer. The system provides up to 24 hour post preparation stability.
