Speed, Reliability, Low Sample Volume

Measuring samples as small as 65 µL and returning results in just 35 seconds, our new Vi-CELL MetaFLEX™ bioanalyte analyzer evaluates pH, pO2, pCO2, glucose, lactate, electrolytes and more. With less maintenance, more reliability and a surprisingly small footprint, it’s a sophisticated research solution that profiles test samples quickly, easily and accurately—keeping your test cell cultures in balance, viable and growing.

Vi-CELL MetaFLEX is available in selected geographies. Please check with your Beckman Coulter representative for availability.
