Innovative, robust technologies for flow cytometry

Our Molecular Probes™ product scientists have been at the forefront of invention and development of fluorescent probes for nearly 40 years. The research solutions we've developed in this time include an extensive selection of reagents for the flow cytometry–based interrogation of cell structure, function, and dysfunction and the Invitrogen™ Attune™ NxT Flow Cytometer, which is changing the rules when it comes to affordable and versatile instrumentation.

Flow cytometers

Our Attune Flow Cytometers employ a revolutionary technology—acoustic-assisted hydrodynamic focusing—to align cells prior to interrogation with a laser for your multicolor flow cytometry analysis. This means that you get accurate data even at sample throughput rates that are 10 times faster than traditional cytometers, all in a benchtop instrument that's easy to own, use, and manage.
