The Making Of A Potomac

The Making of a Potomac

We’ve put together a photo gallery showing the care and effort that goes into the making of a Potomac flow cytometer. The gallery takes you on the journey from a simple optical table to assembly of all components, and the careful packaging.

After we said “Bon voyage” to the instrument, we then installed it at the lab of Dr. Romeo Bernini at the Institute for the Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment (IREA) of the National Research Council (CNR) in Naples, Italy. The lab there is using this custom instrument, which has violet (405 nm), UV (375 nm), and deep-UV (266 nm) lasers, to excite autofluorescence in human cells for biomedical applications and in cyanobacteria to monitor water quality.
