CellMek SPS System

Since 1986 we have automated and innovated tools to empower process optimization in laboratories across the globe. Now we enter the next level of lean processing by introducing the CellMek SPS system, designed to automate an end-to-end flow cytometry sample preparation workflow without user intervention. Cut stress. Boost flexibility.


The CellMek SPS system helps you unlock the power of lean by addressing major process wastes related to sample preparation in your clinical flow cytometry laboratory.

  • Drives Efficiency via Automation.
  • Standardizes Processes & Reduces Potential for Error.
  • Ensures Flexibility Via User-Defined Protocols.
  • Provides Confidence in Results facilitated by a full audit trail.
  • Frees up lab staff to deal with more value-added tasks.


Unlock the Power of Lean

The CellMek SPS System is designed to enable lean processing. The LEAN concept provides a systematic approach to look at workflows to take out all non-value adding process steps, the so-called process wastes, in order to increase efficiency. The CellMek SPS System addresses the challenges associated with complex sample preparation in flow cytometry to increase lab efficiency and helps you to cope with increasing workloads. Are you ready to Unlock the Power of Lean?

CellMek SPS: Audit Trail Features

Selecting the Audit Trail from the CellMek SPS Home Screen
The CellMek SPS sample preparation system automates a workflow—from sample loading to samples ready to analyze—without user intervention. Unalterable audit trails are essential to building confidence in data integrity. In order to take the accreditation pressure off the lab, the CellMek SPS system tracks everything that comes onboard by using a total of eight barcode scanners. The information stored in the database can be easily retrieved to provide a full audit trail for samples and reagents. You can search by date and trace back information on panels & worklists, consumables, external resources, instrument monitoring & access, maintenance and many more categories.

The CellMek SPS is an automated sample preparation system intended for in vitro diagnostic use that can be programmed by the user to perform a variety of liquid handing operations, including sample preparation for flow cytometry. It is designed to automate staining, lysing, incubating, and washing of different biological specimen types, which enhances productivity by minimizing resource allocation for repetitive work in the clinical laboratory. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the precision performance of CellMek SPS (repeatability and reproducibility) using a representative sample preparation workflow that utilizes the Cell Wash Module (CWM) as well as the Dry Reagent Module, which supports the DURACartridge custom dry reagent format.

The test cases in this study utilized a Wash-Stain-Lyse/Fix-Wash workflow with a 10-Color (10C) cocktail in DURACartridge dry format and the IOTest 3 +0.25% fixative lysing solution. The 10C cocktail included Kappa-FITC, Lambda-PE, CD10-ECD, CD5-PC5.5, CD200-PC7, CD34-APC, CD38-AA700, CD20-AA750, CD19-PB, and CD45-KrO. Data from samples prepared by the CellMek SPS were acquired on a Navios flow cytometer and analyzed using Kaluza C software. Standard Deviation (SD) and Coefficient of Variations (%CV) were calculated for each marker by each instrument and across all instruments.

For repeatability testing, peripheral blood specimens obtained from normal donors were spiked with CD34+ KG1a Cells and processed by three CellMek SPS instruments (1 donor/instrument, 10 replicates/donor). A single-output-tube panel was defined to process 100 μL of specimen at a time, which was then run in replicate thus eliminating any system variability due to multi-dispense of specimen.

Analysis Strategy for Repeatability:

  • The data files of the repeatability samples were analyzed offline using Kaluza C v1.1 software.
  • Standard deviation (SD) and coefficient of variations (%CV) were calculated for each marker by each instrument (Table 3).
  • Repeatability variability was compared to the specified repeatability acceptance criteria (Table 2).

For reproducibility testing, one lot of ClearLLab Control Cells, Abnormal (part number B90003) was processed on three CellMek SPS instruments. To ensure even use of both assemblies within the CWM and capture of maximum module variability, a two-output-tube panel was defined to process 100 μL of specimen in duplicate per specimen tube run, which was then assigned to two identical specimen tubes that were run in parallel (4 output tubes total). Specimen pairs were run in duplicate (8 output tubes) at least once a day (AM and/or PM) for at least five days for a total of 80 replicates per instrument. The AM and PM runs were processed at least 2 hours apart.

Analysis Strategy for Reproducibility:

  • The data files were analyzed offline using Kaluza C v1.1 software.
  • Standard deviation (SD) and coefficient of variations (%CV) were calculated for each marker by each instrument and across all instruments (Tables 4 and 5).
  • Variability was compared to the specified reproducibility acceptance criteria (Table 2).
  • ClearLLab Control Cells Abnormal were used and assessed for % positive cell populations measured against the lot-specific assay sheet (Table 6)

Our innovative new format for automated use of dry reagents

DURACartridges are a new format of custom designed dry pre-mixed antibody panels to work with the CellMek SPS Sample Preparation System. Our proprietary method to dry reagents with the DURA Innovations technology does not involve the process of lyophilization and offers many advantages for improved workflow efficiency. Every DURACartridge has 12 wells with dry reagents covered with pierceable foil. The CellMek SPS System provides onboard capacity of up to 12 DURACartridges, 12 tests each, which adds up to a total capacity of up to 144 tests. That can help further decrease the turnaround time in labs with higher throughput.
