Dear Marie,

Thanks for the informations. I'll check the publications.
I have questions:
How the UV light is preserved? Do you mean that the Navios is better detetecting parameters from violet laser?
What do you mean on the excellent photoprotection? The Canto is also equiped with a dark housing for the carousel.
Am I wrong that in the Navios only the lasers and the excitation optics are "air conditioned" but the flow cell not ?

Best regards,

> Both Canto II and Navios are good instruments and you might be interested

> Navios differs by a better discrimination of fluorescence at low
> intensities linked to the higher number of bits (easily demonstrated by the
> broad  CVs of dim beads or cells in the first two decades on a Canto), by
> providing 12 parameters (10 FL), being equipped with a carousel with single
> tube vortexing before acquisition (important for large batches or long
> acquisition times i.e. single platform absolute counts or minimal residual
> disease , see Lambert C Cyometry part B, 2005), excellent photoprotection
> for fragile fluorochromes, very stable thermostated flow cell and lasers),
> and finally no light loss with UV.
> Hope this will help you.
