Parsortix™ Performance Data

Pre-labelled cells spiked into whole blood and separated


Pre-labelled SKBR-3 cells (CellTracker Green) were spiked into whole blood and separated with the Parsortix™ system. Cells in the capture cassette were counted and compared to the number spiked cells. Measured variation (% CV) in numbers spiked is typically ~7%.
