A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11879826B2) outlines a flow cytometer communication system designed for biological laboratories. The system includes a computer communication network, multiple smart flow cytometers, and a central repair server system. Each smart flow cytometer is equipped with a monitoring system that tracks various operational parameters, detects advanced failures in components like laser and fluidic subsystems, and determines the need for repair and maintenance. When a failure is detected, the failing smart flow cytometer sends a message to the central repair server system, which then downloads parameter history, diagnoses the issue, and alerts users, manufacturers, or repair technicians for necessary actions.

Moreover, the system incorporates a remote host computer at a service provider to enhance diagnostics and repair services. If a warning or alarm message is received from a smart flow cytometer, the central repair server system communicates with the service provider's computer to alert a repair technician for further diagnosis and immediate repair services. The warning and alarm messages are triggered based on predetermined limits for component performance, ensuring proactive maintenance and preventing system failures. Additionally, the smart flow cytometers are equipped with quality control systems for start-up validation and performance monitoring, enhancing the overall efficiency and reliability of the flow cytometer communication system in biological laboratories.
