How does Helios double throughput?

Helios™ employs a modified sample injector architecture that produces cell-derived ion clouds that are half the size (~1 mm) of those generated by CyTOF® 1 or CyTOF 2 instruments. Helios also uses a modified signal amplifier that preserves dynamic range, necessitated by the larger per-push signal that results from packaging cell-derived signal into fewer pushes. As a result of these two changes, twice the number of cells can be resolved per unit of time.
