Moxi Go II, an Analytical Instrument:
Gemini carries gold-standard cell and protein analysis instrumentation through its line of Moxi products. The Moxi Go has the potential to enable simultaneous, rapid analysis of antibodies and cytokines tied to COVID-19. The Moxi Go uniquely combines highly accurate and precise cell counting and volumetric sizing with the cell and protein analysis capabilities of a flow cytometer.
The Moxi Go instrument is differentiated by its accuracy, its small footprint for easy deployment, its speed—with tests running in less than 20 seconds—and its ability to calibrate every test independently. The instrument has a touchscreen for easy, intuitive use so that technicians will be able to easily navigate the system menus. Moreover, the instrument is fully self-contained, requiring no cleaning fluids or maintenance, making it ideal for cell culture suites, BSL2/3/4 settings with limited space.
