The AcCellerator is a high speed imaging cytometer for mechanical cell characterization through real-time deformability cytometry measurements. Designed as an extension to an inverted microscope, the combination of hardware and software solutions ensures unprecedented comfort and flexibility for cell mechanical measurements. Our InitialService includes delivery, installation and user training as well as all the consumables necessary for your first experiments.
Explore physical properties of cells as a biomarker. Using the AcCellerator , you can apply non-destructive forces to cells or beads and observe their deformation. This allows to study the specific mechanical response to physical stress.
Every cell is photographed, analyzed and stored simultaneously. This allows to find small subpopulations or distinguish cells by means of their optical properties. Additionally one can study morphological properties like surface topology or the attenuation of light by the cell.
Parameters like deformation, brighness and size are extracted while the cell is passing the channel. This allows to gate for cell properties in real-time.

Shape-In allows you to define your measurement parameters and to control measurement conditions. The created data file contains information on all detected events including image data, deformation data and morphology data. Real-time gating allows you to focus on a subpopulation of cells within a heterogeneous sample.
The all-inclusive package includes:
The AcCellerator starts from 118 000 €. The price depends on your needs for a microscope or customizations. We offer shipping, installation, teaching. All you need are 2 m² on a stable table in a temperature stable room.
