“Streamlines cell phenotyping”

The Guava PCA-96 is a powerful, yet flexible, flow cytometer that, in the words
of the manufacturer, “streamlines cell phenotyping, drug discovery, and cell
culture monitoring and screening” via its turnkey assays. Its integrated sample
tray supports one 96-well microplate and up to ten tubes per run.


This Guava PCA-96 has been thoroughly tested according to our standard process

assurance that you will receive a fully-functioning instrument.


This turnkey system includes a Dell Latitude laptop pre-installed with the Guava
CytoSoft and active assays, a good flow cell, and various accessories -- thus
offering more out-of-the-box functionality than nearly any other listing on eBay.

Experienced Techs, Comprehensive Testing

The technicians here at New Life Scientific are more experienced with Guava
cytometers than almost any other instrument. They know the procedures a
laboratory technician goes through to maintain their cytometers, so they run
every Guava through those processes to evaluate not just their mechanical
integrity, but their real-world functionality.

You can find a detailed outline of the testing procedure at the end of this
description.

New Life Scientific’s Cytometer Testing

Standard procedure for every Guava PCA-96


Comprehensive Testing Protocol

Our first step in testing a Guava PCA-96 is to confirm the flow cell’s health
with a pump test and repair or replace it if it demonstrates poor flow.

After testing the flow cell, we then open the instrument up and clear any
clogs with Millipore's own GuavaCheck solution and Guava Instrument Cleaning
Fluid.


After flushing the lines, we then measure the fluorescence intensity with
genuine Guava beads and reagent, ensuring that the results correspond with
Guava's predefined standards. The results of this test will indicate any issues
with the laser or flow cell. If any issues crop up, we replace the appropriate
component.


All Assay’s Registered

We then verify that each assay is registered with Millipore, which allows us to
run routines with them. The user has no need to worry about purchasing and
registering assays - we include them with every Guava cytometer we sell!


Shutdown Procedure

As the final step of our testing and service process, we run through the
following shutdown procedure:

(1) Running the GuavaCheck and Guava Instrument Cleaning Fluid solutions
through the lines

(2) Removing the flow cell

(3) Securing the stage to keep it still during shipping
