About Orflo

Orflo Technologies is a life sciences company developing and marketing revolutionary instrumentation for the cell analysis industry. Since our first invention of the pipette-based cell counter, the core of Orflo’s instrumentation has been a patent protected disposable, micro-fluidic, electro-optic flow cell. Through the unique combination of electric impedance (Coulter Principle) and fluorescence based flow Cytometry detection modes, Orflo’s instruments provide a powerful, unique window to cell analysis by directly measuring fluorescence and cell volume simultaneously. This capability, coupled with the simplicity, affordability, and elimination of all fluidics and maintenance, will enable a significant increase in the pace of experimentation, testing and ultimately discovery.
