Custom Flow Cytometry Cell Manufacturing

If you are an engineer looking for a custom flow cytometry cell you need to read the content below.  If you are not looking for flow cells, skip this article.

Important:  FireflySci, Inc. will provide you with the best flow cytometry cell for your project or your money back.  

When an engineer needs a custom flow cytometry cell for his machine, what does he do?  First, he does some research on the internet finding companies who manufacture these parts.  Next, he will take time to send out sketches to potential suppliers.  Then he’ll wait for a quote.  Once the quote is received, he’ll review the options and place an order.  The above process seems to be a very short, easy process, but in reality, this can be a long, drawn out ordeal.

Flow Cytometry Cell Quotation Times

FireflySci has an amazingly fast turnaround time on quoting custom parts.  Other leading companies in the flow cell field can take weeks to get you a quote.  This can be a draining and nerve-racking process.  You can get stuck in a loop of sending 2-3 follow up e-mails a week, just waiting to get some numbers.

So forget about going to those other guys.  Let us get you that custom quote in 1-3 business days.  Simply send us the drawing and the quantity and you can continue doing your work and not giving this a second thought.  

To make it even easier there is a form on our website that you can fill out to get started.  You can find the Custom Flow Cytometry Cell form here.

Flow Cytometry Cell Manufacturing Lead Time

When a project is in the prototype phase is it critical to be able to make fast design changes.  These design changes usually mean a revision to the flow cytometry cell and waiting three months for another prototype is often unacceptable for companies looking to push their machine to production.  Getting test samples lightning-fast has become a mandatory requirement and companies will not sit by for months waiting for samples.

FireflySci’s lead times shine in this area.  We have the highly sought after ability to quickly produce small quantities (1-5 pieces) in a short amount of time.  We can produce a small batch of flow cells in about 7-8 weeks from start to finish.  

Superior Communication

We understand that companies build their production schedules around the lead times that we provide.  We are proud to say that we stick by our lead times and if something does come up during manufacturing, you can be sure that we’ll let you know right away.  We do not wait for you to send us an e-mail to check the status.  In addition, we’ll send you updates about your project at various time intervals.
