    Hi ABRF community,

    I'm looking for info on the CytoFLEX LX flow cytometry analyzer. Our core may have an opportunity to replace our aging LSRII instrument with a CytoFLEX LX. While I love our LSRII and it has been - and continues to be for the moment - a workhorse for our facility, I understand that at some point, parts and service may be come unavailable and/or cost prohibitive. Our LSRII has the following laser configuration: 405nm 20mW, 488nm 30mW, 561nm 150mW and 636nm 150mW, with FSC-PMT. We'd like at least the same lasers (if not more; noting that the powers may be different) and the small particle resolution.

    CytoFLEX LX users: what do you like about the instrument? Dislike? What's the ease of use? Consumable and maintenance costs? Info is much appreciated.
