CyteFinder II Imaging Instruments

Immunofluorescence Imaging for Rare Cell Detection

CyteFinder® II Instruments are high-speed, whole slide imaging systems with options for multiplexed liquid biopsy and tissue spatial analysis.

  • IF, H&E, and IHC modes for imaging blood smears, tissue sections, and cytology preparation including fine needle aspirates
  • Integrated machine learning algorithm detects and rank orders candidate cells for user review
  • Tissue option for digital pathology on the CyteFinder II Instrument
  • CytePicker® Retrieval Module enables single cell or tissue micro-region retrieval from any location on the slide (CyteFinder II Instrument only)
  • Designed for placement in clinical laboratories and compatible with custom analysis workflows

Case Study

Accurate CTC detection is critical in the recovery of useful, quantitative data from patient blood. A research article published in Frontiers in Oncology describes the AccuCyte process for CTC isolation and CyteFinder II’s immunofluorescence staining and imaging, together providing a reliable and accurate workflow at > 95% when compared to recovery rates using density or lysis-based processes.
