Scientists typically separate and process their cells by traditional centrifugation. This technique generates shear stress and can contribute to sample contamination. In contrast, counterflow centrifugation (CFC) takes advantage of forces within fluid samples that are similar to those felt while skydiving to gently suspend and separate cells. CFC instruments rapidly and safely process cells in scalable systems with reduced contamination risks.
