Performance Assessment of an Automated Flow Cytometry Sample Preparatorfor Clinical Testing

Swiss Cytometry 2020 -- Sample preparation for flow cytometric analysis is a highly complex and mostly manual procedure, and therefore error-prone and time consuming. A commercially available fully automated system preparatorhaving antibody cocktail mixing, lyse, stain, fix, centrifuge and sample mixing (FlowStainer™ FS100, InstruNorA/S) was evaluated as an alternative to manual sample preparation. We assessed whether sample processing by the automated system preparatorwas meeting precision and accuracy standards for clinical testing using the in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) TBNK testing (T, B cells and NK staining).
