Yokogawa CQ1 Quantitative Confocal Image Cytometer

Confocal Quantitative Image Cytometer CQ1

Confocal Quantitative Image Cytometer CQ1 offers a new approach to image quantification
CQ1 enables 3D imaging and quantification of live cell clusters, such as spheroids within a 3D culture vessel, as they are, keeping the cells intact.
CQ1 exports feature data in general formats which are readable by various third-party software for advanced data analysis.
It is possible to construct fully customized CQ1-based system by integrating with external systems*1, via robot for culture dish handling.
Enables measurement of spheroids, colonies and tissue sections
No need to remove cells from culture dish, in contrast to traditional flow cytometry
Nipkow spinning disk confocal technology allows high-speed yet gentle 3D image acquisition
Rich feature extraction to facilitate sophisticated cellular image analysis
Wide field of view and tiling capability enable easy imaging of large specimen
Offers the similar operability to traditional flow cytometer
Feature data and statistical graphs displayed in real-time with image acquisition
Easy to trace back to the original image from a graph spot, and make repetitive measurements
Open platform
Expandable to integrated system as image acquisition and quantification instrument
FCS/CSV/ICE data format readable by third-party data analysis software
Connectable with external systems via handling robot*1
A variety of cell culture and sample dishes are applicable
Compact footprint, light weight bench-top device; no need for darkroom
CQ1 General fluorescent imaging Flow cytometry
Cell removal/suspension treatment Not necessary Not necessary Necessary
Cell image confirmation Possible Possible Not possible
Display feature data and graphs in real-time with imaging Possible Depends on devices Possible
3D data measurement Possible Not possible Not possible
