Guava Technologies has introduced a new side scatter option for its Guava EasyCyte system that makes single-cell analysis with accurate cell enumeration more versatile and easier than ever before. The side scatter feature allows researchers to analyse whole blood for different types of white blood cells, without having to stain or fix the cells. The granular structures in the cytoplasm of granulocytes, a type of white blood cell, cause more scattering of incident light than the more uniform cytoplasm of lymphocytes, another type of white blood cell. This makes it easier to perform a three-part differential on whole blood: assessing the percentage and number of granulocytes, monocytes, and lymphocytes in a given sample. The Guava EasyCyte is a five-parameter system that is flexible, highly affordable, and ultra-compact. Since it requires only a few microlitres of sample volume, it saves precious and expensive cells, reagents, and compounds.
