    Description

    The cell sorter allows the simultaneous separation of up to four pure populations from a heterogenous suspension sample at a speed of up to 90,000 cells per second.

    Separation is based on the detection of fluorescent markers on cells, nuclei, bacteria or phytoplankton from 200nm – 60µm in size.

    The collected cells or particles may be used for subsequent analysis, tissue culture or injection into experimental animal models. It also generates bivariate dot-plots and histograms which can be used to calculate population statistics and changes in mean-fluorescence intensity within the sample.
