  • BD FacsAria SORP 5-Laser

    Features:

    The BD FACSAria SORP 5-laser is a high speed multilaser droplet cell sorter. This system is fitted with five lasers – excitation lines are 355nm, 405nm, 488nm, 561nm and 640nm and can collect up to 17 parameters including forward and side scatter. Due to the wide range of excitation wavelengths, many available fluorescent probes utilized in flow cytometry can be accommodated. The Aria has four-way and single-cell sorting capabilities and is equipped with ACDU allowing for slide and plate (6, 24, 48, 96 and 384 wells) sorting.

    Beginning March 2013, this instrument will be housed in a separate negative pressure lab space within a BioProtect IV-LE-Bio Containment Hood; thus allowing for sorting of potentially bio-hazardous samples and a broader range of live unfixed human cells.

     

  • BD FacsAria SORP 4-Laser

    Features:

    The BD FACSAria SORP 4-laser is a high speed multilaser droplet cell sorter. This system is fitted with four lasers – excitation lines are 405nm, 488nm, 560nm and 640nm and can collect up to 13 parameters including forward and side scatter. Due to the wide range of excitation wavelengths, many available fluorescent probes utilized in flow cytometry can be accommodated. The Aria has four-way and single-cell sorting capabilities and is equipped with ACDU allowing for slide and plate (6, 24, 48, 96 and 384 wells) sorting.

     

  • BD LSRFortessa

    Features:

    The Fortessa is a 16 color capable bench-top multilaser flow cytometer equipped with six lasers.  Excitation lines are at 488nm, 355nm, 403nm, 552nm, 640nm and 690nm wavelengths.  It is also equipped with a High Throughput Sampler (HTS) which allows for sample loading from a 96 or 384 well microtiter plate for screening assays.

     

  • BD LSRFortessa (Instrument #2)

    Features:

     The Fortessa is a 16 color capable bench-top multilaser flow cytometer equipped with six lasers.  Excitation lines are at 488nm, 355nm, 405nm, 552nm, 640nm and 685nm wavelengths.  It is currently not equipped with a High Throughput Sampler (HTS).
