Default Seeking opinions - Guava EasyCyte Mini or Plus




I am considering the purchase of a Guava Easycyte Plus for my lab.
Their literature is impressive, as are the demos that my students
have seen at meetings. However, I don't know what the long-term
reliability of this instrument is, and am looking for any comments
on it.

Thanks!

I'm sure its is a great assay system but I heard the kits are
expensive and you have to use Guava kits

There are similar commercial assay kits available which will work on
any fluorescent microplate reader or flow cytometers.

There are also a number of multiplex bead assay kit devices around.
The Luminex System is a multiplex analyzer based on the principles of
flow and simulataneously detect 10 different cytokines from a single
smaple (they claim up to 100 in the literature). The user can also
customise their own multiplex kits by selecting from a range of
singleplex bead kits for the measurement of different combinations of
cytokines or signaling proteins. See:
