ViroCyt Virus Counter 3100
The Virocyt Virus Counter 3100 is optimized for rapid virus quantification with an analysis time of less than 5 minutes by utilizing a dual fluorescence staining approach. With the Combo Dye system, viral genomes (and nucleic acids in general) and proteins in viral capsids are stained with a combination of equilibrium dyes that fluoresce in the yellow and red regions of the visible spectrum. This “combination” approach to staining allows for the detection of a wide variety of viruses using a simple nowash assay. In the Virus Counter, by using proprietary fluidics technology, stained viral particles are hydrodynamically focused into a narrow nanostream and passed through a laser intercept point. Emitted fluorescence is detected on two separate optical channels where optical compensation hardware and software elements correct for any crosstalk between channels.
- Focus: The first and only automated technology specifically developed to rapidly quantify intact virus particles
- Speed: Results in minutes, not days or weeks required for other methods
- Reliability: Rugged design for industrial settings, including 21 CFR Part 11-capable software for GMP environments
