Guava EasyCyte Mini vs. Beckman Quanta SC

Hi everybody!

Our department does not have a flow cytometry core. Our lab want to buy
a personalized cytometry system for specific applications such as
apoptosis and cell cycle. We don't need to do sorting. My question is:
if you have to choose between the Cell Lab Quanta SC from Beckman and
the Guava EasyCyte Mini, which one you recommend? Should I indicate that
we are not experts in cytometry and won't have any particular personnel
to handle the machine. 

We have some enthusiasm with the Guava microcapillary system, yet are
concerned about the reliability of the system. 

Any suggestions?
