RareCyte CyteFinder II and CyteFinder II HT

RareCyte is introducing its CyteFinder II and CyteFinder II HT instruments, next-generation versions of the company's CyteFinder instruments for multi-omic liquid biopsy and tissue research in clinical labs. Both instruments perform rapid, whole-slide imaging in seven fluorescence channels as well as brightfield for immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, and H&E.

CyteFinder II offers researchers a complete workflow in a single platform for imaging through cell retrieval of both liquid biopsy and tissue samples. The integrated CytePicker Retrieval Module enables discovery research by providing image-guided cell retrieval for high-depth sequencing. This workflow can be used for circulating tumor cell mutational analysis, RNA-based T-cell receptor discovery, and differential expression analysis of tissue microenvironments.

CyteFinder II HT meets the demand of high-volume pathology and liquid biopsy labs with hands-free, rapid, whole-slide scanning of up to 80 slides and a barcode-driven workflow for sample tracking. The machine learning-driven workflow for rare cell detection and automated tissue finding make CyteFinder II HT ideal for clinical researchers performing either cellular or tissue-based multiplexed analysis.
