How does Helios compare to a CyTOF equipped with the Super Sampler?
The Helios™ Sample Loader and the Super Sampler provide comparable sampling efficiency, eliminate carrier solution, eliminate the need to transfer samples into a syringe by sampling directly from a tube (1.5 or 5 mL tube for the Sample Loader; any tube size for Super Sampler) and have effective methods to counteract sedimentation (the Super Sampler uses a pump-driven method; the Sample Loader uses rotational agitation).
Upgrading to or trading in CyTOF® for Helios provides the additional advantages of doubled throughput, a modern user interface and improved onboard data storage and security.
And Helios is designed, manufactured and fully supported by Fluidigm.
