Beckman Coulter Gallios

Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Like every other Coulter flow instrument, its rock solid alignment and stability. Very fast sample running (> 10,000 events / second). Optics, fluidics, sensitivity.

The Cons:Software. Software. Tardy phone help.

The Gallios Flow Cytometer is a research system that delivers analytical excellence by coupling extraordinary sensitivity, resolution and dynamic range with high-speed data collection. Along with the unprecedented detection capabilities of the instrument, the Gallios includes easy-to-use software and automation to facilitate superior performance of multi-color flow cytometry assays.

Product Shot 2


The Gallios houses up to three highly reliable, solid-state lasers in standard red and blue, with violet available as an option. Easily interchanged optical filters facilitate detection of a variety of dyes and wavelengths.

An innovative forward-scatter detector provides up to three measurements of cell size and visualization of particles down to 0.404 mm in diameter. A side-scatter detector incorporates an independently focused, high-performance photodiode with electronic attenuation. Six fluorescence detectors provide simultaneous acquisition of up to six fluorescence signals. Up to four fluorescence detectors can be added to the system, enabling concurrent reading of up to 10 colors. Simultaneous measurements of integral, peak and width are available for all parameters, including scatter and fluorescence signals. A selection of up to 62 parameters can be processed per analysis, at acquisition rates of 25,000 events-per-second, with high yield. Three scalable configurations allow for the future addition of more lasers and fluorescence detectors as the applications for complex multi-color flow cytometry expand.

anon: #beckman_coulter_gallios Excellent optics and fluidics. Carousel run mode only. Very rigid, inflexible software. Not intuitive or user friendly. Expect to waste time troubleshooting this software. Can be guardedly used for acquisition only with a second software package for analysis. If only the software were better this would be a great instrument. Sep 17, 11

Anonymous: #beckman_coulter_gallios Here's to hoping we're going to see the Navios soon. It's been 2 years since they rolled the Gallios out and still no Clinical model. Dec 17, 10
