Maximize your productivity with the automation-enabled ZE5 Cell Analyzer

Phenotypic drug discovery, therapeutic antibody screening, and cancer biomarker discovery often require the processing of hundreds or thousands of samples each day. These multiplex, large-scale assays can therefore benefit from high-throughput and high-parameter flow cytometry with integrated automation.

Meet the ZE5 Cell Analyzer — It’s not just another high-color flow cytometer. It is the long-awaited solution for your high productivity needs with added benefits of superior performance and unparalleled flexibility.

Flow Cytometer Built for Automation

  • High throughput-ready hardware and software
  • Maximal productivity with integrated automation and 24/7 operation
  • High-speed acquisition without compromising data quality

Efficient and flexible sample handling

  • Switch between tube racks and plates with zero effort using the integrated sample loader
  • Maintain sample integrity during long screens with on‑board temperature control and orbital agitator
  • Save precious samples through ZE5’s unique ability to sample from volumes under 10ul
  • Allow sampling from v-bottom 384‑well plates with minimal dead volume using automated probe height calibration

Seamless integration into workcells and LIMS

  • Automate plate loading using robotics within a workcell
  • Integrate the ZE5 Cell Analyzer with LIMS and scheduling software through an application programming interface (API)
  • Choose the turnkey Ascent System from Propel Labs or select your own integration partner for full customization
