As a prominent plant biotechnology company, Lifeasible now provides flow cytometry services in the field of plant biology as an efficient method for quantitative cell measurement with reduced cost.


Flow cytometry is a widely used laser-based biophysical technique for cell counting, cell properties measurement and biomarker detection. The standard flow cytometer system consists of fluidic, optical and electronic components. During the assay, suspended cells traverse a laser beam one at a time and the parameters of the cells are detected and measured by light scattering. When connected to a sorting device, it can also physically separate cells and biological particles.

Flow cytometry techniques were originally developed in animal systems. Flow cytometry assays were first used in plants four decades ago. Over the years, flow cytometry has gained wide application in the field of plant biology as a low-cost, effective method for quantitative cell measurements. So far, flow cytometry techniques have been applied to different cell/tissue types in a variety of plant species.

Lifeasible's high-quality flow cytometry services cover a wide range of research purposes, including:

Plant ploidy levels determination: based on detection of nucleus DNA content, ploidy levels of specific plant species can be calculated with high reliability.
True-to-type characterization of genotypes: for plants undergone ploidy manipulation, their genotypes can be characterized and profiled for true-to-type analysis and further, screening for desirable cytotypes.
Mapping of plant genomes: usually performed with fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) for dissecting the genome into its component chromosomes and chromosome arms.
Measurement of chemical contents: within given plant cells and/or plant tissues, the contents of subcellular chemical fractions can be measured via dye-labeling, fluorescence tagging or fluorescence emission.

In addition, flow cytometry at Lifeasible can also be used for cell counting, cell property measuring, biomarker detecting, and cell separation. Lifeasible also provides Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) Assay, and Southern Blotting for gene copy number analysis in the plant system.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
