Benchtop Flow Cytometer


Adding more colors and lasers to a newly designed cytometer is a logical but standard design improvement; Stratedigm is anything but standard.

Not only did we increase the number of parameters from 22 to 30 and the lasers from 4 to 6, we’ve also doubled our throughput, increased our dynamic range to 5 decades, created more spatially separated interrogation points, and boosted our sensitivity up to 300%! All of these major improvements are in the same footprint and at the same price as our first S1000 launched in 2008.

And with our Anti-Obsolescence Guarantee you’ll know your cytometer will be with you for many years to come. This is our commitment to Cytometry Without Compromise™.

  • You can reach our Sales and Customer Support staff by email, chat or phone (877-801-6098).
  • Manufacturing will continue to operate normally to ensure timely delivery of consumables and instrumentation. We continue to meet current demand and do not currently expect disruptions to product availability due to production shortages related to COVID-19. Stratedigm field service engineers will be available for onsite support, but may be impacted or otherwise delayed by travel restrictions.

We encourage you to stay creative and productive, keep your spirit strong, and most importantly - stay safe.
