Attune NxT specifications

The Thermo Fisher Attune NxT is a compact, efficient, and flexible benchtop analyzer that utilizes acoustic-assisted hydrodynamic focusing. This enables faster sample throughput rates and minimizes clogs, and allows a broad range of cell and sample types. In addition, the Attune NxT has a positive-displacement syringe pump system for sample delivery, allowing volumetric analysis. The Attune NxT software is intuitive and easy to learn, and prompts users with step-by-step instructions for cleaning cycles and shutdown procedures. With the autosampler attachment and optional passive cooling system, the Attune can run large numbers of low volume samples in plate format.
