- Multi-functionality. ImmunoSpot® Readers are not only the most successful ELISPOT/FluoroSpot analyzers on the market, they also are multifunctional, enabling other tests that are frequently performed in immune monitoring laboratories, such as PBMC counting, cytotoxicity – and serum neutralization assays, cytokine array analysis. ImmunoSpot® Readers are several instruments in one, for the price of one.
- Instrument harmonization: image analysis devices exhibit inherent differences that interfere with providing identical counts even among instruments of the same model of a vendor. CTL’s strength is instrument harmonization, making our readers the choice of Oxford Immunotech, and other companies serving the regulated immune diagnostic market.
- Excellence in customer support. See testimonials
